R.W. Goodwinâ”a former producer, writer and director on The X-Filesâ”has taken his love for 1950s sci-fi films and invested it into Alien Trespass, an independent movie made as if it were a rediscovered remnant from the Red Scare glory days.
Goodwin produced and directed Alien Trespass, which is set in 1957 and begins when a fiery object from space crashes into a mountaintop in the California desert. Out of the flying saucer escapes a murderous creature: the Ghota, which is bent on destroying all life forms on the planet. A benevolent alien from the spaceship, Urp, inhabits the body of Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack), a local astronomer, who with the help of Tammy (Jenni Baird), a waitress from the local diner, sets out to save mankind.
