Did You Know?


The creature is very similar in appearance to the creature in Alien (1979). It attacks by grabbing onto the mouth of its victim before entering the victim's body. It bursts out of the chest of the victim. When the creature opens its mouth, another extension comes out of the mouth and opens its mouth. See more »


In the opening credits Ann Turkel's name is misspelled as "Anne". See more »


Carla Sandbourn: Is this actually what you do on your spare time or is this a special occasion?
Det. Ian McLemore: I don't have any spare time.
Carla Sandbourn: Oh, twenty four-hour-a-day company man?
Det. Ian McLemore: You can say that.
Carla Sandbourn: So this actually means that you were on duty earlier when you were in bed with me?
Det. Ian McLemore: I would call that working undercover for the Vice Squad.

deep cheesy
9 April 2011 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Still no proper release and only available on ex rental VHS but this one you must see, I mean, really, this is just the same story as Alien. Some shots are almost the same, remember the famous shot were the mother alien pops up against Sigourney Weaver well here we have the same, and we have some kind of facehuggers and one in a stomach ready to come out of this guy's belly. But of course it's all low budget. Why it is called deep space is a big mystery. You are never in out of space it's all happening here on planet Earth. And we surely have our hero. A cop. Being suspended. He's out to kill the alien with a , sigh, gun. But hell, sometimes it's really funny and then again it becomes messy. A chainsaw and axe are used to kill the alien and our hero becomes really messy by the blood and slime of the alien. If you are ready to watch a cheesy one then this is surely for you. Our hero is really some tough macho guy.
