The Arrival

Movie: The Arrival
Director: David Schmoeller
Produced by: Del Mar Entertainment
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

This slick-looking but rather dreary science fiction twist on the vampire genre introduces a crash-landed alien who enters the aged, dying body of Max Page. Fearing for his family’s safety, he flees for San Diego, stopping every other day to prey on more women, until he grows youthful enough to be played by another actor. Meanwhile, a gruff FBI agent investigates. The one-note material is enlivened a bit by some familiar “B”-movie faces — including the lovable Michael J. Pollard — but very little is done with the premise of the alien’s estrogen requirements, other than to show Max sniffing around in some rather inappropriate places. Adept “B”-movie buffs can spot Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon and his wife, actress Carolyn Purdy-Gordon, in cute cameos.
