A former astronaut helps a government agent and a police detective track the source of mysterious alien pod spores, filled with lethal flesh-dissolving acid, to a South American coffee plantation controlled by alien pod clones.
A priest comes to a small town to help get rid of a monster whose blood coagulates very fast. This creates problems as the monster is very hard to kill and then decides to go on a killing spree of its own.
A ship pulls into New York Harbor with no one on board. The police find a cargo full of green pulsating eggs. Upon contact, the eggs explode spreading a green acid like substance that seeps into the skin and explodes. It is later discovered that the eggs are being manufactured in South America by a one-eyed Martian that grew from a tiny seed a former astronaut brought back from a expedition to Mars.Written by
One of the 72 films on the Director of Public Prosecutions 'Video Nasty' list and part of the 'Video Recordings Act 1984' in the UK. Ironically, in 2003, it was released on DVD (and later Blu-Ray in 2015), uncut and downgraded from an '18' rating to a '15' by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification). See more »
Dolly track is clearly visible in two shots inside the ships hold, however some boxes are stacked on the ends of it in an attempt to make the track look some rails for moving freight around in the hold. See more »

The fully uncut version of "Contamination" was finally released in the UK by Anchor Bay in 2006 as part of their "Box of the Banned" compilation series. See more »
This film is a really silly movie. It's NOT an Alien rip-off, the only thing common to Contamination and the Alien franchise are alien eggs. Any other comparison fails completely. The movie is badly acted, badly scripted, badly directed, even the sound is not in sync with the actor lips (of which some may be speaking Italian) and nothing makes any sense. But it's partially entertaining just the same. If you don't try to take an 80's horror movie seriously, you always end up admiring the effort.
Bottom line: a film that is more entertaining than it should be, I rate it 3 because it's so bad it is worth watching. The best scene: the cave mouth on Mars. Hilarious!
