Unknown Science-Fiction Movie

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find out the name of a science fiction movie I think is from the 80s. I saw it when I was a child on television. It is a very obscure movie about a family invaded by some alien beings in their own home and ranch.

Some of the scenes are a small tiny alien that befriends one of the smaller children, a scene where a floating machine/robot chases the family up the stairs and when the family hides in a room and slams the door shut, the robot attempts to break it down with a flaring laser.
A scene with two monsters in the barn area fighting each other , time shifts, and so forth.

Anyone know what this movie is? Anyone know what I am referring to or talking about? I have been trying to figure out this movie out of curiosity it has been killing me as I want to rent this somewhere and see it again.

Thanks.

yes brother, i believe it was. it was on american television , i saw it on tv around early 80s. but it may have been older than that. it was not a big movie on tv at the time, just some sci fi movie they had on one night.

and no, i was not on acid. ever.

Sounds similar to the old favourite Batteries Not Included. I know it's not as you mention a ranch and what not, best ignore what I've just posted.

thanks guys for trying.

the little alien is like a she-alien kind of greenish and like a half foot tall. she befriends the little girl of the family.


there were not alot of robots chasing the family, just one piece of hardware/robot floating toaster thing that chased them up the stairs and into a bedroom. the thing tried to take down the door with a laser but failed to do so and left. that was it.


there were alot of random things that happened at this home and ranch. i remember ranch because i think there was a barn.

at the end of the movie, all the creatures and happenings were actually good omens to the the family that were confused about why they were happening, because a very bright and beautiful sanctuary was revealed to them at the end.
i think the monsters and robots were trying to hint to them the ocming of the sanctuary , but the family were confused and thought every thing was scary and bad at first.

could it be ET 2? i saw that in the philippines in the early 1980s as a youngster. ET has an elephantine trunk and kills campers or ranchers... maybe there was a happy ending?

Spaced Invaders? I remember watching that one in elem/middle school... sort of a cheesy comedy/sci-fi hybrid. I liked it then but I'm sure if I saw it now, it would be terrible. Anyway, I have no idea if this is the movie you have in mind, but kids befriending small green aliens and a robot like thing with a lazer sounds familiar.

Whitley Streibers 'Communion'? not seen it, but may fit the bill...

It's not Mac and Me (1988), by any chance? Has a kid in a wheelchair, not a daughter (but there's a daughter in the movie, according to IMDB).
