Luigi Cozzi’s Eggcellent Film Contamination (1980)!

Coffee, eggs...add some bacon and we have breakfast...

Coffee, eggs…add some bacon and we have breakfast…

As all you ghouls know, I’m a huge fan of Italian science fiction director Luigi Cozzi. While many of you may be familiar with his magnum opus Starcrash, or his series of Hercules flicks starring the Incredible Hulk himself Lou Ferrigno, did you know he also directed a hybrid of Alien and a 1950’s drive-in movie? Well he did, and it is completely insane.

Alien eggs make people’s chest’s explode, there’s sub-plots involving the exploration of Mars and coffee importing/exporting, and of course there’s an alien overlord that has one eye, two mouths and a killer tentacle!

And as an extra bonus, here is the film’s soundtrack as performed by Goblin (because who can have enough Goblin posts in a single weekend?)!

Daniel XIII

Daniel XIII: equally at home at a seance as he is behind the keyboard! Raised on a steady diet of Son of Satan comics, Kaiju flicks and Count Chocula, ol' XIII is a screenwriter, actor, and reviewer of fright flicks! What arcane knowledge lurks behind the preternatural eyes of the Ouija Board Kid?

    Your site. Do what you must do.

  2. Hey Sam, I mean no disrespect with my usage of “creep” or “ghoul”, I just consider its usage as part of my “character” and to emulate the classic horror movie hosts of the past. Sorry if it offended you.

  3. Oliver: Don’t try to bluff me! To think you would bite the hand that was feeding you. You snake in the grass. You traitor! You sheep in wool clothing. You double-crosser. You judist! You… You…!
    Stanley: Stop! Don’t call me a “You-you”.
