The American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) represents the world's largest theatrical catalog of exploitation cinema. Their home video line presents a diverse selection of movies, ranging from new preservations of classics from the vast library of Something Weird to the wildest in shot-on-video (SOV) titles. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

    If CLUELESS was zapped into a movie where Gen X icon Nicole Eggert (BAYWATCH) falls in love with a body-snatching extraterrestrial, it still wouldn't be enough to describe the mindwarping charm of AMANDA & THE ALIEN. Amanda (Eggert) is an artist who leads a quiet life. That is, until she falls in love with a hunky alien who can only survive by swapping human hosts every few days. This bizarro sci-fi comedy is an explosion of 1990s nostalgia, featuring navel rings, CGI morphing effects, an indie rock soundtrack from Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Gos and Sparks, and an unforgettable sex scene involving paprika. A smash hit when it premiered on Showtime in 1995, AMANDA & THE ALIEN has been newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative.

    directed by: Jon Kroll
    starring: Nicole Eggert
    1995 / 96 min / 1.85:1 / English DTS-HD MA 2.0
