A ship pulls into New York Harbor with no one on board. The police find a cargo full of green pulsating eggs. Upon contact, the eggs explode spreading a green acid like substance that seeps into the skin and explodes. It is later discovered that the eggs are being manufactured in South America by a one-eyed Martian that grew from a tiny seed a former astronaut brought back from a expedition to Mars.

Luigi Cozzi’s “Contamination” is a typical Italian “Alien” clone. The film itself is not bad, because it offers some cheap thrills with plenty of nasty gore. Ian McCulloch (“Zombi 2″,”Zombi Holocaust”) is quite memorable as a former astronaut, who returned from Mars. Like many Italian exploitation films made in the early 80’s, the film begins on location in New York City. A bunch of mysterious eggs is discovered along with some mutilated bodies on a deserted ship. Getting too close to these eggs could be very deadly, because they spew some goo at you and make your body explode. “Contamination” is a fun little film loaded with enough gore and violence to satisfy fans of Italian splatter. It’s sometimes too talky and dull, but the beginning is great as is the ending. So if you’re a fan of Italian low-budget exploitation give this one a look. Grab some beer and get ready for some thrills,chills and blood spills!
