HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: Signed ‘Alien Trespass’ Memorabilia From ‘The X-Files’ Director
CHICAGO – The race is on! In our latest HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: Film, we have an extraordinarily unique, off-the-beaten-path giveaway for the one-of-a-kind new film “Alien Trespass” from “The X-Files” director R.W. Goodwin.
We’re giving away one set of signed “Alien Trespass” lobby cards as well as an “Alien Trespass” poster signed by the director. “Alien Trespass” stars Eric McCormack (from TNT’s “Trust Me” and “Will & Grace”), Jenni Baird, Robert Patrick, Jody Thompson, Dan Lauria, Aaron Brooks, Sarah Smyth, Andrew Dunbar and Sage Brocklebank.
Since HollywoodChicago.com Hookups usually receive 50 or more RSVPs and we only have two prizes to give away for this film, we’re doing things differently. Because everyone can’t win this one, we’re asking for a little more work from you than usual and more interactivity. Directions to enter this HollywoodChicago.com Hookup and win can be found beneath the graphic below.

Set in 1957, “Alien Trespass” chronicles a fiery object from space that crashes into a mountaintop in the California desert and brings the threat of disaster to Earth. Out of the flying saucer escapes a murderous creature – the Ghota – which is bent on destroying all lifeforms on the planet.
A benevolent alien from the spaceship named Urp inhabits the body of Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack) – a local astronomer – and with the help of Tammy (Jenni Baird), a waitress from the local diner, sets out to save mankind.
“Alien Trespass,” which stars Eric McCormack, Jenni Baird, Robert Patrick, Jody Thompson, Dan Lauria, Aaron Brooks, Sarah Smyth, Andrew Dunbar and Sage Brocklebank from director R.W. Goodwin, opens on April 3, 2009.
