This is a pretty silly little sci-fi number that definitely liked the movie Alien although I wouldn't call this a clone movie or anything. A boat washes up shore full of green eggs which they just can't help but to toy with. Of course the egg explodes with deadly goo all over everyone (the effects aren't that bad on that part I suppose). One person lives and they meet up with another survivor who is now a crazy alcoholic that tries to help them with their battle against the eggs. It's just all around silly and well it definitely could have been more action packed but it simply wasn't. They did pack in a fair bit of gore and ridiculousness if that's what you are down with, and those are the reasons to watch, especially watching people screaming about eggs. It's just not one of the best Ital gore flicks, but it'll do in a pinch!
