Alien Uprising at Arrow in the Head

Arrow in the Head (joblo) has this to say (sorry that the formatting is grey on grey, click on the link to get the original):

Every once and a while there's a badmovie that just makes you smile. I'm talking about a B movie that has no right to be made, but you can't help yourself... you just want to see it. Why? You know it's going to be painful. You know going in that the acting is going to be terrible, the effects even worse, and the overall moviewatching experience will have you wanting to rather spend your time shoveling snow or something. But you just can't help it.

I came across a movie today that struck that chord with me. It's called ALIEN UPRISING and comes from Halcyon International Pictures. Prepare yourself, because this is bad. Just writing a story about this makes my stomach turn, but like I said... I just can't help it.

The movie is unoriginal and screams for suicide, but you should check it out anyway! The official site, found over here, has a poster, synopsis, and trailer available. The poster you can see above and the trailer you can check out right over here. Here's the synopsis:

In the future. Marines land on the prison planet Rove 12 in order to put down a suspected prisoner uprising. When the Marines arrive, they find most of the prisoners and all of the guards dead. Any survivors are hiding from a ruthless, blood thirsty creature. Now the prisoners and the Marines have to band together to get off the planet - ALIVE.

I'm not even going to bother comparing this to the countless movies it resembles. You just go ahead and enjoy that synopsis, poster, and trailer. ALIEN UPRISING is currently in post production so keep an eye out for a release date soon. Think this one has a shot at going theatrical?
