A Decent Attempt

Inseminoid (1981)

** (out of 4)

Interesting if not completely successful British clone of ALIEN has a group of scientist on another planet studying the place when one of their parties is sexually attacked by an unknown creature. Shortly afterwards the woman turns into a raving maniac trying to kill off the crew so that she can give birth to what's growing inside of her. According to legend, director Norman J. Warren had a screenplay pumped out in four days and the entire film was shot in four weeks. With that in mind I give the film credit for looking as good as it does but there's still no question that there are some flaws here. The biggest flaw is also a spot where I'd actually tip my hat to the filmmakers. You'd think with an ALIEN clone we'd just have a monster running around killing the crew the entire running time but this actually isn't the case. Instead of that the filmmakers tried to mix things up by having the female herself doing the killing and I thought it was an interesting attempt at doing something different than your monster-on-the-loose thing. Sadly, the little experiment didn't work because it's the female killer that really drags the film down. Earlier in the picture we get a glimpse of one of the aliens and it has a pretty good look to it and it almost seems like it influenced the end look of the monster in THE FLY remake. There's also a sequence with the alien babies, which look extremely good and once again more time with these fellas would have been nice. The film also suffers from some pretty weak performances at time and the music score itself is pretty weak. With that said, there's still quite a bit to enjoy here including the direction by Warren. I thought he actually did a nice job considering what he had to work with and this is especially true during the first half of the movie. Another major plus were the special effects, which at times were quite gory for a British film from this period. Still the film never fully reaches the level I'm sure it wanted to. Many consider this one of the worst sci-fi pictures of the era but I wouldn't go that far.
