Storyline

A giant asteroid is heading toward Earth so some astronauts disembark from a nearby space station to blow it up. The mission is successful, and they return to the station unknowingly bringing back a gooey green substance that mutates into one-eyed tentacled monsters that feed off electricity. Soon the station is crawling with them, and people are being zapped left and right! Written by Humberto Amador

Will you believe it when you're dead?
14 July 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Fun, fast-moving, funky sci-fi action for "Thunderbirds" fans.

US B-Grade stars meet slimy Japanese-style men-in-monster-suit Aliens with reproductive blood who, having infiltrated a space-station and captured the interest of a new-lifeform-discovering scientist proceed to electrocute half the crew.

Funky colour schemes, futuristic 1960s-style discotheques, kooky camera angles and a crazy Blaxploitation-style theme song combine to create a groovy film, man.

Better acting than "Space: 1999".
