Reminisce of a Sunday afternoon sci-fi channel special NIGHT FEEDERS tells the tale of a small redneck town going through the motions; arguing with their wives over whether he should fix the car or her TV. He chooses the television to fix first if he values eating, according to her .Amidst all the hillbilly love a meteor has fallen from the skies and landed in the small one horse town. Doing what seems to be a normal occurrence for them a group of deliverance like guys head off into the woods for a little "R and R", but what they don't expect is the meteor that has landed on the town has brought someone with it . Will the visitors overtake their town or will it be "Carolina BBQ at its finest"?
NIGHT FEEDERS was a nice change of pace of a nightly movie viewing experience. Director Jet Eller put forth a lot of devotion and effort into making NIGHT FEEDERS one of the few independent sci-fi films to actually be worth while. There have been so many floating around that just do no justice for those involved. NIGHT FEEDERS is no such case. Sitting here typing up this review I honestly cant think of anything that bothered me about this film . The story was top notch and I must make note of how well Eller achieved in keeping me entertained throughout the film with his unique style of story telling.
And I'd be a fool to not mention the performance of the acting, which surpasses that of a norm indie film. I thought there was a nice array of characters herein to make this a highly enjoyable movie. The performance of Donnie Evans was my favorite part of this movie. At one point he was trying to light the campfire and flamed it up to high grazing his face, asking "are my eyebrows still there??" Lines such as that throughout the film really added a different kind of vibe to this film making this one of my favorite Sci-Fi films ever seen. Kudos go out to Jet Eller and the amazing cast , led by Evans. Thanks guys; and it's Texas BBQ at its finest!!!!!! .
