Directed by Luigi Cozzi
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!

Wow...Theses Italian directors have no shame. I have to admit, I was entertained by some of scenes. (I.e. exploding bodies). Just two skulls.
Great Italian sci-fi B-movie . Another "Joe Bob needs to host this!" movie. But in the meantime great stoner comedy with incredible 80's special effects.
From the start not a soul on board apart from the two people next to the barrels at yhe aft of the ship that are not there the effects are weak even for the 80's seen other 80's film with alot better effects reminds me of the old dr who episodes from the late 60's would only recommend if you are in to more low budget scfi
where to begin? it's alien meets species 2 but with 100 percent less necked chicks. things I learned from this movie: Kramer was an Italian cop in a past life, Italians invented the vore fetish, preflight checklists are for pussies, astronauts are immune to plan crashes, and genestealers evolved from avocados. 1 skull for a good soundtrack, -3 Skulls for pacing slower than a snail running uphill in a peanut butter landslide.
Disgusting slow motion explosions that would make Michael Bay envious. A few interesting concepts held back by inferior storytelling that ultimately leads to a uneventful climax. Aside from the gnarly exploding gag this is little more than a riff track for mystery science theater. In short a boring version of 1979s Zombi coincidentally or not shot in the exact location. Unfortunately not bad in the right ways to even be a beautiful disaster on the lines of Tobe Hoopers 1985 Lifeforce or his 1986 Invaders from Mars. Check out the opening ten mins to gaze upon the exploding shots than pick something more satisfying. This is merely another rip off of Alien done inexpensive but t above all incompetentally.
