When a band of sexy space pirates hijack a fuel-transport vessel bound for Earth, an alien virus known only as "Thanatos" is accidentally released. The contagion mutates its victims, transforming them one after another into ravenous, demonic creatures. Pirates and crew must join together to destroy the undead PLAGUERS as the ship nears Earth, threatening to infect the entire planet. Written by
Quite cheap-looking (like out of some dingy Sci-fi TV show) and restricted, sort of "Alien" schlock b-grade knock-off throws around the tackily unimaginative blood and gore (although there's one scene involving someone's upper body being torn apart), but not much else. In the year 2241, transport vessel Pandora is carrying an alien energy source, which seems to have a life of its own. Own their way to Earth, they receive a distress signal, a derelict spacecraft. Captain Holloway, the stand-in captain after the death of the ship's former captain and her fiancée, decides to check it out. At first the ship appeared to be empty, but suddenly four beautiful nurse's (dressed in skimpy airline outfits) show up to be only survivors of a space pirate raid. However it's revealed the vixen nurses are the actual pirates and begin to take over the Pandora, but one of them is affected by some sort of green plague that has ruptured from the alien energy source the ship's transporting. She mutates in to a monstrous creature with a thirst for blood as the crew begin to fall victims to the virus turning in to demonic plaguers, while the energy source begins to deplete the ship's oxygen levels as the ship hurdles to earth. The simple-minded story isn't that bad in its idea, but the execution is fairly slipshod (like the cat-fight between the captain and leader of the pirates in where they were punching without force), the script is interminably dumb and so are the stale performances. Steve Railsback's amusingly robotic performance yes he plays an android no sorry syndroid reminds me of Lance Hendrick's Bishop from "Aliens". His interactions with the crew are quite amusing too, like the mash potato sequence. Most of the actions are clumsy, corn-riddled, goofy (a mutation releasing green snot onto a dead body to rejuvenate it) and boringly repetitive amongst a haunted house like structure, but it does win points on having someone donning a ridiculous looking rubber monster suit and going out on a grim end. "Plaguers" didn't come off for me, but it knows what it wants to be and recklessly delivers on that generic fodder.
