New Xtro Movie on the Way

Anyone here remember the 1983 flick Xtro? That super cool alien flick in which a woman gave birth to a full grown man? If you listen closely, you can hear women of all ages wincing in pain at the thought of that last remark! The film spawned two insipid sequels, and apparently there’s a fourth film on the way to hopefully make us forget about them.

In an interview with Fangoria director Harry Bromley Davenport dropped the following nugget of news on them:

“I am going to be starting XTRO 4 this summer; you are the first to receive this shattering news,” Davenport tells Fango. “A script by Daryl Haney is in the works, and my sales guys are salivating. It’s going to be a very odd movie indeed. Sort of back to the roots of the first one, but much stranger and, hopefully, more uncomfortable.

More uncomfortable? Ladies — clinch those legs together tightly! More soon. In the interim check out the trailer for the original film as well as the infamous birthing scene below.

    Woah! I LOVE Xtro! What a wonderfully weird, surreal and creepy film. There are very few movies like it in existence and I absolutely adore it.

    Part 2 is pretty terrible, however, which kept me away from Part 3.

    If this new one is going back to basics, I am all for it.

    Also, Harry Davenport has been talking to fans on the IMDb for a few years now via the message boards. He seems like a very nice, down-to-earth guy.

    I’ve never seen it but have always wanted to. It’s always being referenced.

    If they take it back to the feel of the very bizarre and original first film, then this will be worth a look.

  • Vanvance1

    I loved the first one. I’d like that on blu ray too.

    Looking forward to new weirdness.

    The original is my most disliked movie of all time (followed closey by Hoboken Hollow, Mysterious Planet and Hell Ride) You would have to pay me to watch it again.

    Part 2 I thought was one of the better direct to vid Alien knock-offs.

    I’ve still got part 3 on vhs but only because it features the awsome trailer for the Double Dragon movie (it really makes it look good!)

    I’ll proberly watch the new one for nostalgia.
