Trivia

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 »

Goofs

(at around 55 mins) In the lab, just before the space object is drilled into, the lighting becomes substantially darker in the room between cuts (no doubt to increase the sense of fear), without anything to explain why. See more »

It's another "Alien" ripoff! Won't they ever stop??
8 December 2001 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

A cut-rate imitation of "Alien" that has an air of sloppiness about it (the script could have been written over a weekend probably), but delivers the goods in the end with some good buzzsaw action and lots of slime. Problem is, it's STILL not particularly better than any other of the dozens of "Alien" ripoffs that are floating around.....(**)
