This movie is *not* a rip-off of Alien, it is a scene-by-scene *EXACT* remake of "Forbidden World"(the Roger Corman film, not "Forbidden Planet"). It's the *exact* same movie, line by line, scene by scene. You can verify this for yourself. Watch "Forbidden World" first, then this little stinker. What I don't understand is how someone else can be credited as having written it when it's the exact same movie, scene by scene, line by line. To add insult to injury, the original was better, and yet the original was junk! It played in theatres as a double feature with Roger Corman's better film "Battle Beyond the Stars", from which it borrowed it's space ship(Nestor's ship in the other movie). This movie has always perplexed me, because I don't understand how a different person can legally be credited as being the writer in place of the actual writer. It could be that some sort of copyright ran out or wasn't renewed. This movie is of interest for this one odd circumstance alone, being a 100% clone of another movie, absolutely no original material, yet somehow without crediting the original. If that sort of trivia doesn't interest you then you should watch something better that stands on it's own merits, or at least the original version "Forbidden World".
