Drop Your Socks and Grab Your Cocks, It's the SPACEBABES FROM OUTER SPACE! (Review)


A young single mother gets called into work and leaves her dad to watch her small son. Before bed, grandpa tells junior a little adult bedtime story. You see, there were three space babes --Carrieola, Vanassa and Ragyna-- running from some alien beasts called "scrotes". When their spacecraft (which is shaped like a boob, natch) is shot down, their only hope for survival is to hit the button marked "DON'T PUSH EVER!". With no choice, they hit it and are hurled light years away, very close to Earth. We are given an animated history lesson about how there are no more men where they are from because they all devolved into the scrote monsters. Now they are faced with landing on Earth where there are lots of men.

They crash on top of a barn where they meet Charlie, a man who inadvertently shows them how to get the energy they need for their spaceship to get back home; the sexual energy from his erection. So to help them, he takes them to the local titty joint where there will no doubt be plenty of boner gasoline. Vanassa and Ragyna become strippers to help the cause, while Carrieola hangs out with Charlie and contemplates things like love, sex and renewable energy sources. Of course it's not long before the scrotes come looking for the babes and find out that sometimes there can indeed be too much of a good thing. Will the babes collect enough penis propellant to get them back home? Does love supercharge sex fuel? Can Charlie handle three babes at once? All of these questions and more will be answered when you watch Space Babes From Outer Space!


Unless you have been living under an indie horror rock, you have no doubt heard of the break out movie from a couple of years ago, Found directed by Scott Schirmer. Comparatively, you are more than likely a fan of indie scene darling Ellie Church who has starred in such neo-classics as Frankenstein Created Bikers, Harvest Lake and Headless. The component of Space Babes from Outer Space that you may not know by name is Brian "Not the News Guy" Williams. Brian burst onto the scene in 2014 with his sexy revenge flick Time to Kill (also starring Ellie) which he wrote, directed, produced, edited and shot. He hooked up with Scott a couple of years later to shoot Schirmer's mind-bending body horror Harvest Lake and along the way somewhere, they co-created Bandit Motion Pictures for their collaborations. Since then they have gone on to create and release the backwoods horror Plankface.

Now the team of Williams and Schirmer is about to unleash a movie that, if you know or follow Brian Williams on social media, is the movie he was meant to make. Brian Williams is a really funny guy just in general. So when I heard he was making a comedy, I was pretty stoked. Space Babes From Outer Space is an homage to those titty-filled sex comedies and science fiction from the '80s like Weird Science (the "scrotes" reminded me a lot of the Chet shit monster) and Zapped! starring Scot Baio and Willy Ames. There are lots of dick jokes and not-so-subtle sexual innuendo accompanied by tons of tits and gyrating booties. The pace is breakneck and the jokes and nudity come hard and fast. There is one scene where a long line of topless strippers just stand there and jiggle for like 3 minutes, which is oddly a very important scene that I can't give away completely!


My favorite scene by far is an absolutely bonkers dinner scene when Charlie takes Carrieola to meet his family. His mom is senile, brother is a face-painting weirdo, sister breastfeeds and drinks whisky throughout the scene, dad (who is the most normal) is a hurtfully blunt asshole and in all of this weirdness there enters and exits a topless woman wearing a gas mask and carrying a sword. The latter part was so bizarre I had to ask Brian about it via Facebook messenger, "[It's] kind of my homage to Screwballs and Better Off Dead. Both films had a random person in the background wearing a gas mask. And I wanted there to be something ludicrous when Charlie was begging for them to talk about something normal." The whole dinner scene also has a offbeat Natural Born Killers-like live audience laugh track which makes everything a whole lot more kooky.

There isn't a whole lot I didn't love about Space Babes From Outer Space but one thing that struck me as a bit out of place was a pretty heavy-handed love story complete with relatively lengthy and cheesy soap opera-style monologues. Luckily it didn't eat up too much time or take away from the fun. There is also some socio-sexual commentary throughout the movie that seemed a little shoe-horned in but again, it never detracted from the comedic tones of the movie. In fact, the animated history lesson (illustrated by the awesome Martin Trafford) about how men became the scrotes was fucking hilarious and right on. Oh wait, there is something else that some of you may find sad and distasteful; Ellie Church isn't nude. Well, she is but the viewer doesn't get to see anything. She is still VERY crazysexycute in her role as "Carrieola" though, and her acting chops get better and better with every role, even light ones like this.
