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

Lewis Coates (Luigi Cozzi to his friends) brings us linguine style "Alien" with Englishman abroad Ian McCulloch star billed but only appearing in the final half of the movie as a banished, drunken former astronaut brought on board a dangerous mission to discover the origins of green eggs from Mars that emit an acid-like substance when heated that cause victims to spontaneously combust.
Graphic but largely pointless exercise in cinematic rip-off, with much plot development but little coherent execution. McCulloch has limited screen time in comparison with the film's actual stars, Louise Marleau as the sexy but probably frigid Colonel with responsibility for disarming the global threat, and Marino Mase as the Brooklyn detective whose initial discovery of the eggs rows him aboard the fatal mission. Familiar German actor Siegfried Rauch co-stars as McCulloch's former astronaut companion whose version of events of the mission to Mars, differs significantly from that of McCulloch raising suspicions about McCulloch's state of mind.
As aforesaid, it's graphic with more than a dozen slow-motion, gut-busters that send entrails into the atmosphere, while a grotesque cyclops beast also appears briefly to ingest its prey with a hideous trunk-like anatomy that should entertain those in search of gore. Goblin provides the electronica soundtrack (not as good as their Argento stuff in my opinion) and there's a couple of suspenseful moments in an otherwise unremarkable rip-off.
