The movie starts out by telling us it's the year 2032 or something, and we see a couple of people in spacesuits walking around on what is supposed to be the surface of Mars. Since Mars is known as the 'red' planet, a red filter is placed over the camera lens to achieve that effect, making everything red. This effect was so apparent it drew me out of the movie, which may have not been a bad thing. Also I noticed a cloud or two in the sky, suggesting that Mars has an atmosphere, not unlike that of Earth, but whatever....
Now these two 'explorers' find a thingamabob buried in the ground, dig it out, and return to their shuttle. It appears to be a giant Cadbury space egg, but before they get a chance to really examine it, they are called off. I thought it was kind of interesting how no quarantine procedures were used to isolate the alien artifact, but there you go. While they are away, the egg cracks open and leaks out some alien goo. Now, you may ask, "Is this a bad thing?" to which I would reply, "Have you ever known alien goo to be a good thing?" (Bet they'll be wishing soon that they did have quarantine procedures)
Soon we see the shuttlecraft computer come to life, stating that the oxygen levels are at a critical stage, and immediate action is required. A slow pan around the ship shows the crew already dead, so I guess the computer was a little slow with its' warning. Dumb computer...The ship, now on auto pilot, flies back to a big, goofy looking space station, where an investigation as to how the crew died takes place. (Hint, how about a computer with an exceptionally poor response time?Read more ›
Obviously the egg opens revealing a big crystal and a nasty infant creature swimming in mucilage. It appears to be a mollusk of some sort. The creature goes undetected by the crack crew, turns off their air, and the first cast dies. Sadly the movie doesn't end there. The SC37 somehow docks with a ridiculous space station, and gets retrofitted for further service. There is an investigation into the loss (this investigatory meeting will make your eyes roll into the back of your skull), and a lot of new characters are introduced, getting the film back on track. But wait! There's a fire on the giant space station! It spreads so rapidly that the SC37 has to launch to escape! There's lots of professional calm among the astronaut corps ("We're all gonna' die!Read more ›

This had to have been the worst "Alien" space movie ever made. Yes it is the early 80's and the special effects are not meant to be great. But the "alien" was hilarious. Read morePublished on April 10, 2008 by A.T.
