That link has a better description of the movie than I can remember.

All I remember is the plot; about how we humans are actually cattles that this alien race put on Earth so they can eventually harvest us as food. And this particular alien is actually a farmer (of humans). Such a cool story.

Hope some one knows the movie.

I tried to search but no luck so far.
Hangar 18 (1980) might be close?

I'm pretty sure the movie is Motel Hell (1980).

Thanks for all the help. I think I might have found it. I think it's Alien Hunter (2003). Didn't realized it was that new. I thougth it was older. But the description sounds right.

All I remember was the ending where the alien tries to set up communication to let its home planet know that the humans are ready to be harvest. So the description of the movie sounds right. Gonna try and watch it and see if it is the one.

Thanks all.

Oh, it was so new. Co-starring Carl Lewis of all people [Smile]
Anyway, never seen this and all movies with Spader are interesting IMO.

Alien Hunter (2003) is a totally different story.
I had a feeling it wouldn't be the the one I am looking because it is just too new.

I am sure the one I am looking for is 80s or 90s. So the search continues.

Ah, i didn't click the link in LuvMovies' original post, sorry.
Now i've read it, it definitely can't be Motel Hell.
My second pick before i read the article was going to be Peter Jackson's Bad Tast (1988), but
it can't be that one either.
Funny thing : Motel Hell has a body-harvesting farmer in it, but no aliens.. while Bad Taste has
humans-harvesting aliens in it, but no farmers.
I mean : How many movies can there be about human bodies-harvesting farmers / aliens ? [Big Grin]

Well, in the movie itself, there's no actual harvesting of humans (I don't think). But that is the story line - that humans are cattles, and were put here by aliens to eventually be harvested.

In the movie, it's mostly trying to prevent it from happening. The (link) has a good description of what happens in the movie.

So hard to find it. Maybe it's a made-for-tv movie.
