Inseminoid (1981) aka Horror Planet

3 / 5 Oct '10
Tagline: N/A
Directed by: Norman J. Warren
Written by: Nick Maley
Actors include: Robin Clarke, Jennifer Ashley, Stephanie Beacham
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi
Length: 93 minutes
Banned: Nope

In many ways this is an extremely cheap and silly Alien rip-off with moderately successful actors like Stephanie Beacham, Victoria Tennant and Judy Geeson (who does a fantastic job considering the circumstances). In it's favor it does have excessive gore (yay) and alien rape and some fun deaths. It's also so ridiculous and over the top that it's laughable and entertaining on a few levels. The plot involves a female crew member getting impregnated by an alien which causes her to turn into a psycho murdering her fellow passengers who want nothing more than an abortion for her. It's surprisingly ambitious, horror fans should be pleased with the deaths and blood (I was). The creativity is lacking obviously and this is not something that everyone will enjoy, particularly if you don't have a love of camp. Still entertaining at least, but it could have been so much more.

Availability:  On DVD
