The review in Variety had this to say:
Good silly fun, “Alien Trespass” is a dead-on spoof of cheapo ’50s sci-fi programmers done with plenty of self-deprecating humor. Producer-director and longtime “X-Files” intimate R. W. Goodwin clearly knows the territory; the pic gets away with presenting itself as a long-lost classic from a half-century ago while simultaneously sending up the genre’s conventions. Set to begin its gradual theatrical launch April 3, this Roadshow Attractions pickup holds appeal to several audience niches, including fanboys, kids and families looking for some laughs, but could ultimately be just too tame and devotedly retro to break out beyond specialty release. Subsequent DVD future looks rosy.
