October Horror Movie Challenge - High Plains Invaders (2009)


Synopsis: Ex-soldier Sam, gets a reprieve from the hangman's noose with alien bugs invade 1890's Colorado town. 

The Good: I like James Masters (Buffy's Spike) and he does a decent job as the film's protagonist, Sam. The aliens were reminiscent of Starship Troopers (though they didn't look nearly as cool).

The Bad: This is a Syfy movie and it shows. The CG isn't great and neither is most of the acting.

Final Thoughts: As bad as it was, I enjoyed this movie. I'm just a sucker for the weird west.
