Trivia

After getting a cast, the direction was entrusted to Biagio Proietti, but after a week of various misunderstandings, he was ousted from the project. Ciro Ippolito therefore proposed the film to Mario Bava. However, Bava was already busy with another film and advised Ippolito to assume the role of director for Alien 2. Ippolito replaced Proietti a few days later, under the pseudonym "Sam Cromwell", which marked his directorial debut. See more »

Horror or Comedy?
24 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

When I watched this film I knew almost nothing about the original Alien series. I just had heard about them and, so I thought this would be the original' s movie sequel. The Greek title confused me a little bit ("A monster on earth"). When I found out that this was not the movie I expected to be I became furious. You can understand only from the last scene how silly this movie was (I decided to watch it all because I should pay for it). The heroine found out that she was alone in the city and then a title came out saying: YOU COULD BE THE NEXT!(No other comments for that) I can't advice you to watch it because I'm not sure if your local video store would have it (it is a very popular movie, you see) but I would recommend this movie to anyone loves gore (Too gory with very silly special effects)

Here's the main plot: The heroine (I can't remember her name) discovers caves and has terrible headaches because of the alien's arrival on earth. Anyway, they (there were some others too) decide to go to a cave to find out that they were carrying an alien rock with them witch turns them to disgusting monsters/aliens which are after the rest of them (or something like that). Funny for children but too gory. 2/10
