There were several Alien ripoff movies during this time period, all obviously falling short but most are enjoyable such as Deep Star Six and Leviathan. This was the first one that falls way, way short.
This movie is super grainy, sloppy with horrible acting. The creature design and effects are pretty subpar. I didn’t hate the opening scene on a technical level but it was just so unoriginal.
It’s not a worthless film though, it’s still paced well, action packed. It’s just…bad. Have a few drinks before you toss this on and it’ll be much more digestible.
