From the Back Cover

A group of scientists, army types and a buxom psychic use a variety of methods to suck a bloodthirsty alien out of another dimension. Upon arriving, the little devil blasts his way loose, taking part of a soldier#s face along the way. The psychic and her network of friends chase the beast, tracking him down for a blood-drenched finale in an underground beauty shop. Featuring a cult classic cast including Angelique Pettyjohn (Mad Doctor of Blood Island) and Aldo Ray.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fred Olen Ray Monster Movie: Take 1. April 6, 2009
Format:DVD
B-movie king Fred Olen Ray has made a lot of movies and some of them (especially from the 80s)are pretty damn fun too. BIOHAZARD comes around at the cusp of this period where you can tell he was still blindly attempting to figure out how to actually make a movie, but was starting to succeed at a few things at least.

This time, a midget monster from beyond this dimension runs around California and murders various people. This continues until our hero somehow succeeds in defeating the evil thing without actually doing much of anything and the movie just ends.

Ray's later monster movies like DEEP SPACE and HYBRID are more fun in a traditional sense, but BIOHAZARD has them trumped on home grown inanity. It's like a home brewed moonshine; it has its charms despite making you kind of headache-y afterwards. I was especially enthused to see Donald Jackson make a cameo and Angelique Pettyjohn in here to add some cheesecake value.

There's a lot of chuckles to be had and some wild ideas, but be aware that if you go into this looking for a movie with an engaging storyline, well drawn characters and conflict, or good special effects you will be disappointed.

Retromedia's DVD is pretty decent. The movie looks as good as it probably ever will, there are some pithy extras that are worth a look, and Ray contributes a commentary with Steve Latshaw. The commentary runs the feature length and is very entertaining. Ray can talk a streak and divulges a lot of interesting facts about the production and its contributors.

This is a recommended release with the usual caveats that come with both Retromedia and shoe-string budget B-movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Wrong Genre... April 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Officially classified as Sci-Fi, but don't enter into this viewing experience expecting something on par with 'Alien' or 'BladeRunner'. It's Sci-Fi, yes, but it's also comedy, imo. Watched in that spirit, I think you'll enjoy it as much as I do. In example: one monster sequence has the soundtrack of a dog growling for the audio effect, heh, heh. To be clear - I didn't say "sounds like a dog", it *is* a dog, lol! :)

Who doesn't get the humor in that? Well, a few apparently. Please be aware that my buddy who I lent it to was actually pretty irritated over how bad it is, heh, heh, heh. But that's the thing, see: he went in expecting some pure Sci-Fi flick that competed with top titles of the day. No way! Wrong entry/expectation! This movie is endearingly and intentionally 'B' (or maybe 'F' for Fun.)

Also sports a couple of the most beautiful actresses (tho fairly unknown) ever to grace the screen, and there is some nudity thereof. Man oh man, what's not to like?

Acting is not too bad, some delivered quality performance, many did not, but even this fact only adds to -- what is to me -- the spot-on delivery of the intended tongue-in-cheek kind of humor that is usually wed to all things meant-to-be-'B'. Kind of belongs to an era where there were a lot of producers doing this kind of budget flick - meets humor - meets Sci Fi adventure. I don't know if this is done very much anymore. If you "get it" then you'll like it.

Now one of my old favs, fun viewing.

(it *is* a dog, lol!)

Movie category "B" in this release is quite decent content. Picture a little noisy, but quite sharp. I liked it! I love old movies.
