Geek Out #28

Special thanks to Christian for this clip...Siskel and Ebert reviewed Xtro??? Why? How? What and where? This was a random, bizarre trilogy of sci-fi/horror cheapies. None of the films were related to each other, and yet, they were all directed by the same guy. Go figure. For the record, I dig each entry. Xtro is weird, Xtro 2: The Second Encounter is funny (it's probably the most blatant ripoff of Aliens on the planet) and Xtro 3: Watch the Skies is sleazy. Both Siskel and Ebert bash the original, but they make a few cogent points.

  1. One of the highlights of Sneak Previews/At The Movies back in the day is that they did review lots of el cheapo grindhouse schlock. Sometimes they even gave the movies a thumbs up ('Infra Man' being one notable example).
