Monster mayhem from Mother Russia!
5 June 2013 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

It's not every day that you have the chance to watch a low-budgeted "Alien" rip-off from Russia, so when "Spores" premiered at a small but charming festival in my home country, I grabbed the opportunity with both eager hands. And I'm glad to say that it was what it was; a largely insignificant but fun and fast-paced Sci-Fi horror flick with decent gore effects, grotesque monster designs and a couple of darn hot Russian babes running around in minuscule jeans shorts. The film's biggest trump is undoubtedly the unique setting, namely an abandoned and ramshackle factory like I presume there are many in rural Russia. Five youngsters on their way to a camping trip stop at the site, for no particular reason, and go in for some random factory exploring. During the intro, however, we already saw how a nasty dinosaur-type alien claimed the factory as its own personal breeding turf. The teenagers, as well as a handful other innocent passers-by, desperately try to escape from the premises, but obviously the alien invasion doesn't restrict itself to the factory alone… Stuff like this is fun to watch, even though you almost instantly forget about it again. "Spores" features all the delightful B-movie stereotypes (the dork, the brainless hot blond …) and shamelessly copies the most legendary moments of its role-model milestone "Alien", like the discovery of a room full of gooey interstellar eggs about to pop open. For quite a long time, "Spores" just features one type of slimy monster that terrorizes the characters, but never the end there's a whole collection of eccentric and campy monsters running amok in the factory, including aliens that hang from the ceiling like fans and hundreds of small octopus creatures. The death sequences are a combination of bloody and cheesy due to the poor use of CGI, and the two main actresses rival each other on who has the most gorgeous legs, but sadly none of them shows any T&A. What a shame! I read at the festival's online forum that it is writer/director Maksim Dyachuck's intention that "Spores" becomes part one of a trilogy. I am volunteering to watch parts two and three as well!
