Robertson and Wynorski, starring Traci Lords (in her first mainstream film), Arthur Roberts and Wynorski alums Ace Mask, Lenny Juliano, Kelli Maroney and Monique Gabrielle.

Nadine Story (Lords) is hired to care for him and finds herself in the middle of strange circumstances as people begin to disappear around her. In actuality, Mr. Johnson, is an alien vanguard who has come to Earth from a dying planet to determine whether our planet will sustain them. When Nadine learns the truth, will she be able to stay alive long enough to warn the world and will they even believe her?
Longtime friends and collaborators, Jim Wynorski and Chuck Cirino have a working relationship that goes back to the mid 1980s, beginning with CHOPPING MALL and continuing with films such as DEATHSTALKER II, BIG BAD MAMA II, NOT OF THIS EARTH, THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING, 976-EVIL II, MUNCHIE, SORCERESS I & II, CRY OF THE WINGED SERPENT, KOMODO VS COBRA, SOLAR STRIKE, BONE EATER and many others.
Chuck Cirino did not start his career as a composer, but rather as a programmer in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania for a Public Access cable TV station, where he learned how to create TV shows by himself, without a crew. In his spare time, he experimented with the station's video equipment and created a series of genre productions that allowed him the opportunity to learn how to incorporate special effects into his work. After relocating to California, Cirino transitioned into directing high-end special effects television commercials. His first work as composer was for the 1980 cult film GYPSY ANGELS, which starred Vanna White and Richard Roundtree. Since then he has scored films for Roger Corman, directed music videos for bands like Earth, Wind & Fire and The Dickies' KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, and has recorded over 40 music soundtracks for feature films like SORCERESS, RETURN OF THE SWAMP THING, HARD TO DIE, TRANSYLVANIA TWIST, and many others.
Chuck has worked as a producer, director, filmmaker, videographer, animator, special effects technician, editor, and composer. He executive produces and directs WEIRD TV, a television series featuring weird Americans, bizarre news, unbelievable events and outlandish skits. Chuck's credits also include executive producer and director of the Sci Fi Channel projects, WORLDWIDE WEIRD and WARPED IN SPACE, and BABERELLAS, an independent Sci Fi feature distributed by Xenon Pictures.
