The director of this film has actually said “there is no contamination in this film what so ever” making this a confusing movie if you've picked it up based on the title. But that doesn't mean this film is anything less than amazing!
The plot unfolds something like this: A ship is discovered in the New York Harbor caring a cargo of coffee beans and dead crew people. The first cops on the scene will discover all the crew members have exploded from the inside. They'll also discover some strange glowing eggs, and after picking one up, will instantly discover what caused all the crew members to explode...
Strange...: Though the movie is called “Contamination” this is just a straight rip-off of Alien, which is better reflected in the the American title: Alien Contamination.
Things to watch for: For a small budget film, an impressive amount of humans (and alien eggs) explode on screen. There's some amazingly awkward romance. A gripping scene where one of our hero is locked in a room with a terrifying egg! An impressive monster revel that you half expected not to happen.
What the star thought upon seeing the film the first time: That movie had a bigger budget than I thought it did. (The actual budget was so low he was floored.)
This director also directed: Starcrash, which you might remember from the first Trailer Trash.
What we learned: You can make shoe string budget movies look great if you know what corners to cut.
Where can you watch it?: You can rent it digitally on Amazon. Or if you're into special features for movies like this, Arrow video has some great features on their Blu-Ray.
