A cargo ship drifts up the Hudson River. Its crew: all dead, their bodies horribly mutilated, turned inside out by an unknown force. Its freight: boxes upon boxes of glowing, pulsating green eggs. It soon becomes clear that these eggs are not of this planet, and someone intends to cultivate them here on Earth. But who? And to what end? CONTAMINATION is an ultra-violent sci-fi epic that really gets under the skin. In space, no one can hear you scream - but on Earth, the terror rings loud and clear!

Ludicrous film, but fun. Redonkulous dialog, half-hatched plot, and WERE THOSE REALLY CASTELVETRANO OLIVES in the cave flashback sequence!?! Cool effects, great music, and interesting location scenes in Columbia. It's a good time if you don't take it seriously.
This is a 1980 movie, technology was not as advanced as it is now. I think its great for that time, its different know, but I actually liked it, I love the actors.
Fun movie, fun gore effects, thin plot, cheesy acting. It worth a watch and especially if you watch it with Joe Bob on the last drive in. Cheap Italian knock off of Alien, kind of in the vein of Zombi 2. Check it out!
A classic example of entering with low expectations, leading to an enjoyable watch. While this can be said about literally any film, somehow these old Italian horror films from the 70’s-80’s never completely sink to the bottom of the lake nor rise above the surface.
I watched this for the first time with Joe Bob. I will never watch it again. Absolute junk.
