Some consider Luigi Cozzi’s 1980 Italian sci-fi gem to be the greatest Alien rip-off ever; we’re simply delighted to bring this true classic of cheesy Italian horror cinema to the faithful Horrorthon devoted. An abandoned ship rolls into New York harbour; on board, the cops discover a stash of deadly alien eggs – can you guess what happens next? Contamination stars cult legend Ian McCulloch – not, not the lead singer of Echo And The Bunnymen, the Scots thesp who featured in the legendary Zombie Holocaust. The plot, as such, borrows judiciously from Ridley Scott while managing to pre-empt James Cameron’s Aliens – perhaps Jimmy decided to rip-off the rip-off. Either way, it’s worth the price of admission alone to dig the crazy electronic score from Goblin. We love Goblin.
