This Italian horror film is an obvious rip-off of Alien that takes every possible shortcut to save a buck, and, when it’s not, it draws from every other science fiction cliché. The creators, Luigi Cozzi and Erich Tomek, probably aren’t even sure where they’ve seen the stuff they copy. They probably think they make it up as they go, but we know. We know they’ve seen this shit elsewhere.
The labs are furnished with machines covered with random buttons and blinking lights. The first threat encountered by the scientists are basically ovomorphs. But, because facehuggers are expensive, all these do is burst into acid. For all your flamethrower needs, there is Contamination. And, in case you’re passionate about exposition, this film has lots and lots.
Argh, this thing is embarrassing. The dialogue makes everything worse. It was dubbed the way Italians dub. But it isn’t all bad. Somehow, through all its missteps, this movie is still entertaining. It’s not lazy. It’s not cheap. It’s uninspired, but it’s captivating. It’s the violent car crash you can’t help but stare at. The editing is awful, but even that is kind of adorable, in a way.
