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

The version released by Cannon in the US (entitled "Alien Contamination") was heavily cut, mainly to tighten the pacing in the mid-section of the film, and to remove a romantic sub-plot. A few seconds of graphic violence was also cut to secure an R-rating from the MPAA. In total, 11 minutes were removed from the original version. The complete 95-minute version is available on the R1 DVD from Blue Undergound. See more »
Being a child of the fifties, I grew up watching drek like this. The only difference I could see between this movie and something made in the fifties was the color.
I'm not sure who Luigi Cozzi is, but I am sure that he must be related to Ed Wood.
This movie was made in 1980, long after the special effects of "Plan 9 from Outer Space" should have been deep-sixed. The plot is very thin, the dialogue is embarrassing and the ending is both bad and predictable.
Having said all that, I had a great time watching it - it was on the El Rey channel which has become one of my guilty pleasure favorites. It's 90 minutes I will never get back but that's OK.
