I couldn’t tell you which movie it was, but a few years ago I reviewed something that starred Morrigan Thompson, and I instantly turned into a fan. I love her camera presence, how natural she is in front of the camera, and the dedication she has for each role she performs. It also helps that she is easy on the eyes. After seeing her in that film I sought her out on social media, and I’ve been following her career ever since.

Sometime back she announced that she would be directing a sci-fi horror short titled Martian Girl Massacre. I couldn’t wait to see it and every time she mentioned it, I would have to hold back the urge to ask her how long until we could see it. That changed when she posted last week asking reviewers to check it out. I quickly messaged her, and she was kind enough to send a link my way to check it out. I want to thank Morrigan for allowing Horror Society and myself the opportunity to review the new short!

**Spoiler Alert** The film follows four twenty-somethings who travel to an airbnb for a quick getaway. What they don’t expect is a strange creature to be roaming the backyard and turning one of them into a vicious killer. **Spoiler Alert**

Thompson is known for her colorful characters and baring it all in front of the camera. She’s a talented actress that never disappoints so I was very excited to see her sci-fi horror short. With that being said, Martian Girl Massacre didn’t disappoint. It was a little on the campy side and had a few unintentional laughs, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The acting in this one is a lot of fun. While Thompson is the star of the short, and does a fantastic job in her role, her co-stars are just as good. The characters are written very well to fit the story and the cast does a wonderful job at bringing them to life.

The story for this one is really fun especially if you grew up during the direct to video age. We get an alien that takes over control of this woman who then goes on a rampage killing anyone she crosses paths with. It’s simple and reminiscent of so many no budget S.O.V. flicks of the late 80s and early 90s. I also found myself laughing at a few unintentionally comedic moments like the scene she is telling everyone she saw an alien kill someone. They proceed to tell her that they don’t believe her, so she goes to bed. AN ALIEN JUST KILLED SOMEONE AND SHE DECIDES TO GO TO BED! While I did enjoy it, a lot, I wish it would have been longer with a little more backstory on the alien itself.

Finally, the film has a campy looking alien and a lot of blood. We have some effects on a budget, but they work. I loved the blood, and the look of the alien made the short for me. Overall, Martian Girl Massacre will not be everyone’s cup of tea but fans of Troma and Warlock Home Video will truly appreciate this no budget horror sci-fi medley. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what Morrigan Thompson has in store for us next!
