During a certain screening, Roger Corman actually smacked an audience member upside the head for laughing at the film. When Roger left the theater, the guy he punched poured soda all over his head from the balcony. See more »

Well I've known and loved this one, since I was a tyke, and now own this video. It's your basic Alien ripoff, with a bunch of scientists hiding out in a remote space station on Xarba, where a troubleshooter Jesse Vint comes to save the day. However, the problem is an experiment, which turns out to be an alien, that escapes and goes on a rampage. However, the best thing about this film is the element of pure cheese; if you like how Corman used to put cheese in his films, you'll love this. Anyhow, the best is probably where they forcefeed the alien a lump of cancer and make 'em puke. That's great. However, the acting's pretty amateurish, the directing is about awful, the set and FX are about average for mid80s, the one thing though is the change of lights throughout the film, which can be found in Event Horizon and a dozen other films. It's a great cheesy flick for drivein and/or Corman fans, but those expecting a contender to ALien well you've been warned.
