the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Battle of Los Angeles’

Note that teeny tiny of hanging off there on the top lefthand side of the cover art. That’s the teeny tiny of the creators of this are hoping you won’t take note of and hence will mistake this for your chance to snap up Battle: Los Angeles — note: no of — on DVD mere days after it bowed at multiplexes. Apparently it also aired on Syfy in the U.S. this past Saturday night. I’m so sorry to have missed what was surely the most craptacular crapfest on Syfy in at least a week.

What’s it all about?

In February 1942 US forces engaged an unidentified flying object above Los Angeles. Now almost 70 years later, the alien invaders have returned.

And Nia Peeples and Kel Mitchell are all that stand between humanity and global doom and stuff.

I blame that “I Love L.A.” song. The aliens left in 1942, after apparently deciding that the city wasn’t all that, but then they heard Randy Newman sing its praises and realized their mistake. But hey, did anyone check to see if they were packing sunscreen and boogie boards instead of rayguns and anal probes? Maybe they just came for vaycay…?

Brought to you by the fine folks at The Asylum, dedicated to giving the mockbuster a bad name…
