Storyline

It's the post-apocalypse, and the world has been changed by "the accident," a chemical warfare experiment gone awry. At an isolated subterranean complex, a group of people survives because they were able to get the antidote for the illness. They rescue a surface survivor from the gargoyles, who unfortunately had time to impregnate her, and when the "baby" is born and escapes into the ventilation ducts, they begin experiencing an attrition problem.

You know the drill
31 December 2002 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

TERROR WITHIN is a blatant ALIEN rip-off like many of Corman's monster movies. The creature looks really rubbery. But this little number is well made and fairly entertaining. Good thing they weren't skimpy on the gore.
