Quite an amazing piece of utter nonsense

Reporter Graig Milford (David Warbeck) has seen it all… Vietnam war crimes, cannibal tribes, political shenanigans and what not else. It’s all fine by him and nowadays he’s comfortable working for television in Miami. After interviewing Dr. Schweiker ‘The Nazi’ (Sergio Rossi) about a scientific breakthrough, involving the solution to a puzzling enigma of genetic engeneering, he gets permission to hang around the lab to shoot some additional footage of the newly bred organism. Milford doesn’t mind, so hanging around the lab is what he does. But an accidental electrocution causes the tiny organism – which looks like strawberry-flavored jelly pudding sprinkled with bits of puke – to die… briefly, as it comes back to life seconds later. But then, suddenly, the room is filled with ghostly imagery and eerie moaning sounds. What the hell? Luckily, Milford still had his camera rolling…

Release Year: 1984

Welcome to a world of crude beauty… of danger and excitement… of wonders, legend, and imagination… Welcome to Harlem, Brother.

I remember this movie from when I watched it as a child on a sunday afternoon on public television and it left quite an impression on me, a certain eyeball-scene in particular. The story’s about an alien who looks just like a regular black man (albeit with some very strange feet) who crashes his spaceship in New York and mixes in with the ‘other immigrants’. He understands people, but is mute himself. At a local bar in Harlem he makes some friends and finds a job using his supernatural powers repairing arcade games.
