Scalleum is a remote farming island off the north coast of Wales, only accessible at low tide via a causeway know as the Devil's Spine, and home to an ancient stone circle known as the Devil's Teeth. This provides the sinister setting for the terrifying alien abduction of local farm girl, Cat Williams and her hitchhiker boyfriend, Angelo Jones.
Weird Worlde is a cable TV programme that's having trouble with its ratings. Threatened with losing her job if things don't improve, presenter Michelle Fox (Emily Booth) needs to come up with something special. She puts a team together to investigate the 'Scalleum Incident'. It's an intriguing story with a twist, as Cat Williams claims to not have just been abducted by aliens, but also impregnated by them! Hence the cynical TV crew - accompanied by actors to stage a dramatic reconstruction, and UFO expert Gavin Gorman - head off to the island. They arrive and experience the weirdness of this remote community, a farm powered by manure and some very twisted Welsh farmers. The TV crew doesn't believe a word of Cat's story, but Michelle will do anything to save her job even if she has to fake a little evidence.
Tensions rise and things are about to come to a head when, the real stars arrive... Aliens, and they aren't friendly. In fact they are pure evil! To survive, our eclectic team of characters will have to tool up with whatever weapons they can find, ranging from hammers to machetes, chainsaws to rotary tillers and even a combine harvester! Will they survive the alien threat? And who will be abducted, mutilated, probed, and decapitated?

Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
