“The Sheen of Wonder”

Films: The Arrival (1996)

Alias: Various, notably Phil Gordian and Kiki

Type: Alien

Location: Civilized Area/Haunted home/Desert

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: We're honestly surprised that more "aliens steal human bodies to control everything" movies weren't made during this decade. But then again, it's not like politicians had THAT much of a grasp on us back then. These aliens sure did, though.

History: Ever wonder why global warming is not stopping anytime soon? Because aliens are posing as our industrial leaders, of course! They want to warm the world up so that it feels a little more like home...oh, and so the humans die as well. They have evaded human detection for a long time...but now Charlie Sheen is here to end it all! We're doomed.

Notable Kills: A rebel is assassinated when scorpions are snuck into the room she's in by the aliens.

Final Fate: It's a tumultuous process, but Sheen manages to broadcast a tape of one of the aliens, his own former boss no less, confessing to their mission and intentions. It is only a matter of time before the conspiracy is common knowledge to all.

Powers/Abilities: Can contort and morph their bodies to resemble humans better, and have developed a gun that can shoot mini-black holes.

Weakness: Extreme cold and anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-The low-quality CGI throws them off a bit, but they're still sneaky shapeshifters with some REALLY freaky looking legs. That, and their transformations don't look all that painless.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Shockwave".

-We are aware that there was a sequel in 1998 featuring Charlie Sheen's character's brother. We also don't really care.

Behind the black is the craziness this actor will bring soon.

Good luck getting that out of your head.
Zordon's cousin was just a piece of work.

Am I the only one who finds her kinda hot?

"My head looks like a what? Repeat that again."
Charlie Sheen is an alien? Makes sense in the long run.
