Luigi Cozzi’s Eggcellent Film Contamination (1980)!

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?
