Aliens in humanoid form land near a seaside town called Kai Horo
- their craft disguised as an old mansion - and slaughter the
inhabitants, packing the pieces into cardboard boxes for sending
as samples to an inter-galactic fast food chain. A passing
charity collector is captured alive for seasoning as a special
feast. The government sends public servants - in the form of a
unit of the Internal Affairs Department - to investigate the
aliens and deal with them. Location shots mostly around Makara,
Pukerua Bay and Porirua. You might compare the U.S. cover art (on
the left) with the original art used on the CD cover (below).
