ALIEN OUTLAW (1985) Directed by Phil Smoot. Stars Kari Anderson, Lash LaRue. Former grip/cameraman/producer/production manager Smoot directed his only two films in 1985. The second was this amateurish but good-natured backyard SF movie that anticipates PREDATOR. Monsters from outer space land in the woods near a small North Carolina town and hunt the locals. Only a trick-shooting carny with sexy legs (Anderson) and former B-western star LaRue can stop them. Anderson looks good running around in small buckskin shorts and pistols, but isn’t much of an actress—not that much thespian ability is called for among the fright masks and ray guns. LaRue’s old ‘40s rival Sunset Carson makes a cameo.
