Xtro (1983)

Harry Bromley Davenport directs Bernice Stegers, Philip Sayer and Maryam d’Abo in this British sci-fi horror where a missing father returns from a Lovecraftian dimension and has a reality altering effect on his estranged family.

Unsettling, seedy and illogical. Almost like watching a no budget David Lynch sitcom, only with zero confidence that the storytellers know what they are doing even if you don’t. The FX have a Seventies Doctor Who ‘charm’ and the ever gorgeous Maryam d’Abo shows her 007s as a loved up French au pair. Small pleasures.
