I've been trying to remember a movie I saw when I was very young for a few months now, but haven't been able to find anything based on what few details I remember. Here's what I do definitely know:

  • I was no older than six when I saw it, so I watched it in 1995 at the latest.
  • I watched it at home meaning it would have been rented from a video store, so it's likely to have been made at least a few years before I saw it.
  • It was set on earth, rather than on another planet or in space.
  • There was an alien villain which would, when angry, morph from human shape into its alien form. I can't be definite but I want to say that part of the morphing involved him/his skin turning inside out. One of these transformations was triggered when he was hit in the groin.

I had thought it may have starred Tim Allen, which in turn led me to Galaxy Quest, but that doesn't fit. Unfortunately I can't be definite about any other details that I may think I remember; I've seen a lot of science fiction movies in the eighteen years since so there's probably a lot of merging aspects of several of them. However, I'm hoping that the details I do definitely recall will result in somebody else remembering it.

I'm pretty certain that this is Suburban Commando starring Hulk Hogan and Christopher Lloyd and released in 1991.

Hulk Hogan is a warrior who crashes on Earth and ends up living with Lloyd's family. Of course, hilarity ensues.

The villain is General Suitor who is, of course, disguised as a human - but when he gets angry, turns into a creature that looks an awful lot like The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

I don't recall the specific scene (probably tried to block it out), but someone in this thread mentions a scene similar to the one you recall.

Suburban Commando: when Gen. Suitor gets sucker punched in the balls, he turns into something of cross between the Creature from the Black Lagoon and Predator.

    That's it, thank you. This has been bugging me for a while and now I don't have to worry about it any more. May 30, 2013 at 15:09

Sounds like Guyver. Guyver WIKI

Other than that, more details could be given, enemies, etc...
