Storyline

Five miles below the Earth's surface, a group of scientists is working in self-imposed isolation, perfecting a series of DNA experiments that could literally change the world. But when one of those experiments goes awry, it unleashes a nearly immortal organism--one capable of instant regeneration, and with an insatiable appetite for living flesh. Soon, nothing can contain the creature, and with the lab's life support systems quickly shutting down, the scientists grimly prepare for their final battle... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

According to interview with Lisa Boyle for Playboy magazine, her character was originally supposed to be dragged away, have her clothes ripped off and get raped and killed by mutant creature in the film, similar to how some of the monsters from other Roger Corman produced film Humanoids From The Deep (1980) would attack and rape women in that film. Reason for that was mostly because producers thought that Boyle's nude and sex scenes in the film didn't include enough nudity for the film. She refused to film the scene and because of her arguments with producers she demand to be listed in the opening credits under her alias name Cassandra Leigh. Because of that producers edited her shower scene from Midnight Tease (1994) into the film so that it has more nudity scenes with her. See more »

Alien rip-off #5671
21 May 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

It's hard to believe that Ridley Scott's ALIEN was made nearly twenty years ago, and we're still feeling its impact with inferior rip-offs, about half of which come from executive producer Roger Corman and cronies.

Here six scientists (including an annoying, coke-snorting nonconformist) are trapped in a military silo "five miles" underground where their experiments with DNA have turned a harmless mouse into a giant, lurking killing machine. All the clichés are accounted for, including a cheap-o dinner table stomach burster scene, characters who wander endlessly through dark corridors, ridiculous dialogue and the token topless scene (provided by Cassandra Leigh/Lisa Boyle).

On the plus side, the sets and FX are passable, it's short and moves fairly quickly and Maria Ford, as a tomboy in a half shirt, makes a fine Grade-Z sub for Sigourney Weaver.

Another average one!
