An American secret gouvernment organisation headed by Miles Kendrick (Rob Karma Robinson) has found some clues to an alien invasion - clues that just don't make any sense, since it appears the aliens send humans back in time to do ... what? But this all shouldn's concern DJ Steve any, as he's about to rock a New Year's eve party in some obscure village in Wales, UK, a party though that's supposed to be all important for his portfolio, as he's been promised a large crowd - promised, but never delivered, as he plays only for a handful of people - and then, a Massai warrior crashes onto the roof of the venue, literally out of nowhere. And I don't need to note here that Massai warriors aren't even native to Wales, right? Anyway, that's the first sign that something's seriously wrong, and that feeling is only augmented when a bunch of guys with claw hands wearing yellow raincoats show up and start to kill people. Fortunately, one of the guests at the rather small and intimate party is Sunita (Sheena Bhattessa), an anthropologist who just happens to know exactly what to do - and so, she, Steve and the other guests start to fight back, with at least some success, as they happen to ward off the weird intruders, but soon our heroes' numbers are down to four, Sunitra, Steve, Sunitra's brother Nav (Richard Mylan) and local Ryan (Aled Pugh), and it's now revealed that Sunitra is actually a field agent for Kendrick, which is why she actually knew what to do, and knows that the men in raincoats are actually cloned humans that are to be the advance party for an alien invasion. But it's debatable how much good that knowledge will do our heroes as claw-handed men in raincoats start to show up everywhere ...

 

Above everything else, Alien Party Crashers is just good fun, as it doesn't take itself seriously at all: Sure, the basic storyline is clichéed as heck, and not made any more original by the fact that the alien invaders wear common yellow raincoats - but writer/director Peter Stray quite obviously knew that, and turned it to the film's advantage by winking at the audience at any twist and turn, without ever turning purely moronic and while still telling an engaging genre story with all the suspense, scares and gore in the right places. And or course, a relateable cast of characters competently embodied by a fine ensemble cast doesn't hurt much either.

In all, it might not be the re-invention of the wheel, but it's fun for sure!
