Corey Sevier in Decoys 2: Alien Seduction (2007)

Teenage Temptresses

It's winter at Strathorn University and whilst some students are battling the cold, Sam (Tyler Johnston) and his roommates are doing battle trying to pick up the hottest girls on campus. The thing is that with a series of cases of men going missing and some being found dead they are putting themselves in danger. New professor, Luke Callahan (Corey Sevier), knows exactly what danger they might be in as he survived the alien horror at St. John College but the trouble is that no one, not even his shrink Dr. Alana Geisner (Dina Meyer) believes him.

As of writing I am yet to watch "Decoys" and as such I can't compare how this straight to video sequel comes off but I imagine that to warrant a sequel "Decoys" must have been a whole lot better than this. Now in fairness "Decoys 2: Alien Seduction" is not completely without merit, it is entertaining in a Friday night pizza and soda sort of way, I say soda because those who are most likely to find this entertaining are not yet old enough to drink beer. But this isn't anything but only okay at best and seems at times to suffer from a split personality.

That split personality comes from having these students going all "American Pie" with various gags and the whole lads competition to bang hot students. But then every now and then it indulges the audience with some horror, although often still trying to keep it in the realms of college comedy rather than going for a fright fest. It just never feels more than only okay and I got the sense that someone came up with this horror sequel which focussed on the character of Luke trying to move on with his life but being unable to but that got loss in translation with the teenage hijinks ending up dominating the movie.

But as I said "Decoys 2: Alien Seduction" is probably entertaining for the Friday night pizza and soda crowd with the simple appeal of the cast coming in to play. But none of the acting is impressive even when you get Tobin Bell cropping up in a handful of scenes.

What this all boils down to is that "Decoys 2: Alien Seduction" will entertain a certain type of audience, the teenage horror fan who still focuses on the simple pleasures. But for more seasoned horror fans it offers up very little other than this semi take on "American Pie" does horror.
