Top of the Food Chain (1999)
Top of the Food Chain is a funny, bizarre spoof on alien invasion B movies that all fans of horror comedy, spoofs, strange movies and laughs need to see.
A small town in Canada has been facing its fair share of problems, but things get worse when aliens are feasting on the townsfolk and it's up to socially awkward scientist Dr. Lamonte to save the day. As the movie progresses he becomes less geek and more cliched action hero.
This is straight up wacky, deadpan, strange and bizarre. Not one character would fit into a normal society. They're all unique to say the least. The acting is intentionally cheesy, as are the special effects. It parodies classic 1950's alien invasion movies, but out of love for them rather than mocking and the end result is an entertaining, quotable, silly piece of cinema that you'll want to watch again and again.
