Storyline

Microbes are brought back to earth via a space probe from Venus. A scientist is using them in experiments on aging, but dies before the work is finished. His assistant approaches an aging actress who is being passed by for the lead roles, and she injects the serum hoping to become young again. When the actress is still passed up for the plum roles, the alien bacterium transforms her into a hideous bug-like alien resulting in a predictable attrition problem amongst her detractors.

Trivia

Producer Fred Olen Ray is the only constant throughout the history of the project. He directed and produced the ambiguous scene between John Carradine and Dawn Wildsmith (then Mrs. Ray), ostensibly for a Frankenstein film; he produced (but did not direct) the whole of "Evil Spawn," written to include pre-extant Carradine footage; and he produced the re-edited "remake," "Alien Within." The approximately 35 minutes of new footage was shot in and around his home in Hollywood. See more »

Alternate Versions

Version entitled Alien Within has added footage, with Richard Harrison and 'Gordon Mitchell (I)', who don't appear in "Evil Spawn". See more »

Evil Rubber
31 August 2001 | by kennywest1See all my reviews

Like all Nite Owl Theater DVDs, this Fred Olan Ray film is a mess of tired special effects, poor acting, and nudity. There's a weak plot about a beautiful aging actress who turns into a six and a half foot tall rubber monster that rips people up here and there. There's a detective or something and a scientist or something..that doesn't really matter if you're just waiting to see a bare body in a following scene because that's all there is here. A cheap soap opera with pathetic monsters. There's alot of entertaining alien films out there..this isn't one of them.
