“Luigi Cozzi thought he could do a sequel to Ridley Scott’s ALIEN… and things went awry.” (Five second summary)
Lights! Camera! Misogyny! Join Chaos, Carnage, and special guest Stephanie (The Angry Princess) of MorbidlyBeautiful.com for this 80’s Italian horror flick that took its inspiration from Ridley Scott’s Alien.
A ship floats into NYC harbor with all the crew massacred and the cargo filled with coffee boxes that actually contain pulsing green eggs. The investigators soon realize how deadly the eggs are when one they are examining bursts and kills three of them… causing them to explode from the inside.
The surviving cop teams up with a Colonel in the US Army and a former astronaut to investigate where the eggs are coming from — and where they are going — before the death toll rises.
Check out the trailer for Contamination below. And if you haven’t seen it, or if it’s been a while, be sure to catch up on the film before listening to this spoiler-y podcast. It’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime and Shudder.
