Storyline

When the spaceship Vertigo stops to explore a previously unknown planet, the crew finds an unrecognized dollop of protoplasm and takes it aboard ship to return it to earth for analysis. On board, lifeform expands into an oozing person-eating monster which communicates primarily by means of a Vegas lounge act. The crew is gobbled up one after another until the two surviving crewmembers come up with a plan. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Possibly the worst movie ever
13 July 2001 | by laurensnyderSee all my reviews

I bought this movie on DVD for $4.99 and still felt that I overpaid. Writer/director/actor Bruce Kimmel obviously owes his career to the fact that people bankroll his projects. Not even Patrick Macnee can save this film from a miserably vapid plot. Don't get me wrong, I love camp. I even own "Andy Warhol's Blood for Dracula" and consider it necessary viewing! But this is not camp -- it's just crap. :)
