“AUSTRALIENS” is a brilliant little play on words for this hilarious new sci-fi extravaganza from Queensland, that hovers around an alien visitation young Andy experienced when she was seven. Twenty years later she’s fronting her naff indie band when the green aliens and their queen return to conduct some unfinished business. A full-scale alien invasion of Brisbane happens soon enough that utilizes heaps of cheesy CG FX, but the gags keep coming at light speed. The aliens are a cross between Tar-Man and the wrinkled extraterrestrials in LIFEFORCE, only if they were painted fluorescent green. AUSTRALIENS is funny, freaky and fitted with a running vomit gag that may even make you puke with laughter.
