Alien Dead is a 1980 American horror film directed by Fred Olen Ray, and the final screen appearance of Buster Crabbe. Ray co-wrote the script with Martin Nicholas. The film was not successful on its initial release, but later gained cult status as an unintentional comedy.[citation needed]



A meteor strikes a houseboat in the swamps near a southern town, causing the people on the houseboat to become zombies. The zombies feed on the alligators in the swamp and when they run out of alligators, they start going for the citizens. When the people start to disappear, a local scientist tries to figure out what's happening and how to stop the zombies from killing more people.
