Trivia

The creature is very similar in appearance to the creature in Alien. 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

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 »

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.
