Production started in 1987, but due to the abundant stop-motion creations and special effects, production took years longer than planned and after several lawsuits involved with the distributors, Vidmark entertainment was given distribution rights. The film was released in 1993 to film festivals and shortly after onto video. See more »

At the end, a subtitle comes up, saying "I don't get payed enough for this shit!" See more »
A p*ssed-off alien escapes from a lab. An evil CEO tries to keep things hush-hush by hiring two evil hit men. A group of not-so-evil scientists and civilians are trapped in the building with the alien, thus becoming it's dinner. That might not sound like much of a plot, but don't let that jade you: This is a gory, effects-packed ride, and a heck of a fun one at that. Acting isn't very good and the plot has holes, but this is a fun one anyways. Some kick-@ss gore, and the creature effects are great. None of this crappy CG stuff that looks like Atari graphics like we see today, we're talking stop-motion and prosthetics like in Alien and The Thing. REAL special effects. This is a fun flick, a good old-fashioned monster movie that doesn't shy away from the good stuff like the crap Resident Evil movies or the new Star Wars films. Fans of old-school horror will be pleased by what this baby has to offer! 3 stars out of 4 (8/10).
