A former astronaut helps a government agent and a police detective track the source of mysterious alien pod spores, filled with lethal flesh-dissolving acid, to a South American coffee plantation controlled by alien pod clones.
A ship pulls into New York Harbor with no one on board. The police find a cargo full of green pulsating eggs. Upon contact, the eggs explode spreading a green acid like substance that seeps into the skin and explodes. It is later discovered that the eggs are being manufactured in South America by a one-eyed Martian that grew from a tiny seed a former astronaut brought back from a expedition to Mars. Written by
I was able to watch the full uncut version of the much acclaimed Contamination. It was one of the many Alien rip offs and one that came straight to the list of the 1984 formed video nasties in the UK, that means that it had to be brutally cut. Afterwards the movie came out in many versions so it became hard to find the uncut version. Anchor Bay is a DVD label that sometimes brings out limited editions (mostly numbered) that are full uncut. Alien 2 was one of the rip offs also being cut but couldn't deliver any suspense although it contained some gory moments. the same with this flick. It all starts with a ship were some bodies are found, bodies terrible mutilated. Soon they discover that they exploded from the inside out, when they notice some glowing things they found out that they contain acid that make you explode. Guess what, the eggs hatch within reach of the newcomers aboard and they explode in full vision. Wow, gore galore but after 15 minutes the movie decays into a thriller, nothing happens until in the last 10 minutes. A real shame that they didn't do anything between those first and last minutes of the movie, it's all blah blah blah. Be sure to have the full uncut to see the exploding bodies otherwise you will have some crap.
