Traumafession:: Reader Lu R. on I Come In Peace

February 19th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments


Your site encouraged me to search again for a film that I saw in the 90s on TV, when I was 5. I woke up in the late evening, so I went for my dad to read me another bed time story and maybe to get a cookie. He watched a film on TV and I got a glimpse of it while I walked up to him. This one scene stuck in my memory. There was some weird bad robot with white hair and a good robot with black hair and – for whatever reason – I thought the bad one was collecting breast milk.

So, today I searched differently and went through every horror film made in the late 80s and early 90s. It turned out that I saw “I Come In Peace“. In the particular scene that I saw, the bad not-robot-but-alien had a female victim. I guess since the bad alien ripped open the shirts of its victims and pumped white liquid into and out of their bodies, I thought it had to be breast milk. Now that I know that the liquid is supposed to be heroin and endorphins, the film seems to be less fucked up than I thought it was. The trailer also seems to be more trashy than horrifying, but for a kid it was really scary. Maybe someone else suffers some Kindertrauma from that one.

    The “I Come In Peace” trailer must have been before a movie I owned on VHS and watched a lot, because I know it back-to-front…Though I’ve never seen the movie. I think it’s high time I finally watched it.

    Taylor – yeah, it’s pretty bad. An alien Lucius Malfoy goes around wasting drug dealers with a wicked flying CD (very high tech at the time) and sucking the hormones out of junkies. Wait – now that I think of it, that sounds pretty awesome! I’ll have to go back and watch it again myself!

    Dolph Lundgren’s kiss-off line in this flick is so bad that I don’t even know the word to describe it – it’s like ultra-violet is to violet as _______ is to awful.
