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.
Grief-struck after the death of his wife, a young man attempts to keep her with him forever - by gutting her, stuffing her and replacing her eyes with glass eyes, turning her into a doll. But his bouts of insanity are just beginning.
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
Writer/director Luigi Cozzi's first script for the film was titled "Alien Arrives on Earth," making no effort to hide that his inspiration for the film was Alien (1979) and that this was his idea for that film's sequel. Some countries also directly marketed the film as a sequel to Ridley Scott's film. See more »
When Commander Hubbard is telling Colonel Holmes about the expedition to Mars he claims the eggs were green just as the one in the photograph she showed him. But the photographs she has shown him were in black and white so he couldn't possibly know if they were green as well. See more »
NYPD Lt. Tony Aris:
Jesus Christ, the whole world is going to be wiped out and all this broad's worried about is getting changed!
Colonel Stella Holmes:
Listen, Aris, if I have to die with the rest of the world then I want to have a proper dress on and clean underwear.

Lewis Coates (Luigi Cozzi to his friends) brings us linguine style "Alien" with Englishman abroad Ian McCulloch star billed but only appearing in the final half of the movie as a banished, drunken former astronaut brought on board a dangerous mission to discover the origins of green eggs from Mars that emit an acid-like substance when heated that cause victims to spontaneously combust.
Graphic but largely pointless exercise in cinematic rip-off, with much plot development but little coherent execution. McCulloch has limited screen time in comparison with the film's actual stars, Louise Marleau as the sexy but probably frigid Colonel with responsibility for disarming the global threat, and Marino Mase as the Brooklyn detective whose initial discovery of the eggs rows him aboard the fatal mission. Familiar German actor Siegfried Rauch co-stars as McCulloch's former astronaut companion whose version of events of the mission to Mars, differs significantly from that of McCulloch raising suspicions about McCulloch's state of mind.
As aforesaid, it's graphic with more than a dozen slow-motion, gut-busters that send entrails into the atmosphere, while a grotesque cyclops beast also appears briefly to ingest its prey with a hideous trunk-like anatomy that should entertain those in search of gore. Goblin provides the electronica soundtrack (not as good as their Argento stuff in my opinion) and there's a couple of suspenseful moments in an otherwise unremarkable rip-off.
