Shirley Thompson Versus the Aliens
Dubbed by its director as a 'psychological thriller cum 50s rock musical/science fiction/fantasy movie'.

The story of a 'widgie' in 1950s Sydney who is visited by aliens from outer space, the film was made in just three weeks on a budget of only $20,000. It was the first and only production of Kollosal Pictures, a short-lived venture formed by Sharman and some young, irreverent collegues.

This was Sharman's first feature, before he went on to shoot the legendary The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
