This uninvolving science-fiction drama concerns an outer-space fugitive, Kol (Ross Hagen), who escapes to Earth, tailed by the eponymous Alienator (Teagen Clive). The film opens as Kol, who has led a rebellion that overthrew the Great Tyrant Baal, is captured, taken to a prison planet, and

sentenced to die. Prior to his scheduled execution, a pacifist donning monk's clothing (Robert Clarke), appears from out of nowhere and tries to talk the Commander (Jan-Michael Vincent) out of killing the rebel. The plea for clemency fails, but just before he is about to be strapped into the

dematerializing chair, Kol somehow manages to elude an entire battalion of men and, dodging an incredible amount of laser fire, escapes the prison planet in a small spaceship. Eventually, he makes it to Earth and crash-lands in a forest, where he is taken in by some teenaged campers and local

sheriff Ward (John Phillip Law). But it isn't long before the Commander and his crew also arrive on Earth, and send the indestructible Alienator after Kol. Looking like a punked-out linebacker in drag, the Alienator first meets up with two (highly stereotyped) backwoods inhabitants who, for the

moment, manage to avoid the strange alien's wrath. Meanwhile, sheriff Ward, Kol, and the band of campers take refuge in the cabin of retired army colonel Coburn (Leo Gordon). They shoot it out with the robot, which seems unbeatable until a metal net is dropped on it, temporarily demagnetizing the

creature. Thinking he's finally safe, Kol takes over one of the human bodies in order to stay on Earth. But the Alienator is not easily fooled and, after getting some much needed beauty sleep, comes back with a vengeance.

Written by Paul Garson, the ALIENATOR is an unsuspenseful, extremely violent film. The dialog is silly, and though the TERMINATOR-like premise is sufficient to support the action, the characters are for the most part undeveloped and unsympathetic. A particularly damaging technical flaw is the

low-budget special-efforts work, which is distractingly poor. (Profanity, graphic violence.)
