Luigi Cozzi’s Eggcellent Film Contamination (1980)!

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?)!
