This eighties sci-fi horror is an obvious rip-off of Alien but with less quality in every department. Some researchers working for a futuristic super corporation are sent to a distant planet to investigate a mysterious discovery which turns out to be an angry alien intent on killing them all. As they get picked off one by one the survivors try to figure out a way to kill it. The first hour is slow and ponderous and then it bursts into life with mind controlling alien parasites and some gory action towards the end. Truthfully this is pretty terrible and it completely fails to build any tension whatsoever, the characters are none too believable and their attempts to survive are really quite pathetic.
