Storyline

The year is 1990. An alien species makes contact with Earth through radio transmission, notifying of an imminent visit. An alien ship crash lands on Mars, and a rescue team is sent from Earth. Eventually a surviving female is located and brought on-board the Earth ship. The alien's skin is light green with an amazing hair-do. After some unsuccessful attempts by the human crew to feed her, she is more-or-less left to herself. While most of the crew sleeps, the alien hypnotizes the astronaut on guard. When the crew awakens, she's sleeping, and the guard is DEAD! Brief examination shows the Alien drank his blood. THE QUEEN OF BLOOD! Naturally, there is a lot of blood plasma on the ship, which they feed the alien. When they're almost home, another crew member is eaten, a fight breaks out, and the alien is accidentally killed before she can finish the third guy. Phew! The ship lands on Earth, finally! But there is trouble... The two remaining astronauts find a lot of eggs when they are ... Written by Markus Torpvret <torpvret@erlang.ericsson.se>

Sensational special effects
5 July 2002 | by julianbristowSee all my reviews

"Queen of Blood" is also known as "Planet of Blood". It was released by American International around 1966.Reguardless of it's low budget,it is a combination of science fiction and horror, with more attention being paid to it's sci-fi side.Cult movie fans should notice that it is actually a foreign movie bought by American International and reworked for american audiences.Curtis Harrington(writer and director)did a fine job on the film. John Saxon would later star in "Planet Earth", a film that closely resembles this movie.I wouldn't be surprized if Gene Roddenberry saw this thriller and hired John Saxon to star in "Planet Earth".If you get the chance, watch this movie, it's pretty good.
