YMMV / The Galaxy Invader

Go To

  • Catharsis Factor: Joe's wife getting fed up with his cruelty and hitting him with a large stick which causes his Disney Villain Death. It's especially satisfying after seeing him brutally killing the green man and threatening his own family.
  • Complete Monster: Joe Montague is first seen shooting at his daughter for slapping him. When he discovers the green man, he decides to hunt it down and sell it to scientists, only not killing it because it's worth more alive. In the course of the hunt, all the men in his hunting party except him, including his apparent best friend, are killed by the green man in self defense, Joe not caring. Later, he tries to rape Becky, then shoots her In the Back when she escapes. After his family takes the alien equipment he stole and runs away, he tries to kill them all, and succeeds in killing the Green Man.

  • Moral Event Horizon: Joe tries to gun down Carroll for slapping him.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Another Don Dohler showcase of fascinating regional white trash acting very awkwardly and charming low-budget costumes and special effects.
  • Special Effects Failure:
    • The green man looks like a cheap Creature from the Black Lagoon Halloween costume.
    • When Joe falls off a cliff, it's very, very obviously just his clothes with rags stuffed into them.

How well does it match the trope?
