The Plot / Story: Based on 1950s sci-fi B movies.  The story begins in 1957 in the star-filled skies above California's Mojave Desert. An alien spaceship as a fiery ball hurtles toward earth and crash-lands on a butte in the desert.  A tall, metallic alien named Urp emerges from the craft unharmed, alarmed to discover that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped. The menacing one-eyed creature's unquenchable appetite could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Urp is the only one who knows how to stop the hideous extra-terrestrial, but to do so he has to take over the body of Dr. Lewis and enlist the aid of Tammy, the only human in town willing to believe and trust in his mission. Urp and Tammy must hunt down the Ghota and neutralize it before it consumes all the local inhabitants and uses the human fuel to multiply and conquer the world.  (Wikipedia) (The Official Site)
