I saw this on VHS when I was a kid. It's a '70s-'80s film about shapeshifting, sea cockroach-looking aliens that were invading earth. The plot centered around a high school senior/college boy who had a crush on this cover girl, and one of these aliens stuck itself to one of her posters and transformed into her. I believe they dated and then maybe, just maybe the girl alien helped him survive? Or beat the other aliens? Or did she turn on him too?

I remember the main character took her out on a date to one of his schoolmate's house parties, and everyone was jealous of him. It was a proud moment for the young lad, for some time anyway.

  • Sounds a bit like The Faculty (1998), but I'm guessing that's not it. Mar 20, 2022 at 19:42

    @LogicDictates I can't say... I do remember the green color palette used most often.. like ye olde green light coming from space ships or something. It's that typical highschool kid who got to date a hot girl kinda movie. And no, it's not The Faculty, although that's one I'm downloading soon for some classic binge moments. Yaroslav, yeah, I don't think the mc woul wanna date a critter. :P
