FULL SYNOPSIS

A surprisingly slick flick from Emperor of Exploitation [[Performer~P107679~Fred Olen Ray~fredolenray]], the story (which Ray co-wrote with [[Performer~P98730~T.L. Lankford~tllankford]], borrowing heavily from the director's earlier [[Feature~V179281~Biohazard~biohazard:thealienforce]]) begins when a satellite carrying top-secret bio-engineered mutants plummets to Earth and disgorges its slavering contents in a scrap-yard outside Los Angeles. Hot on the beast's slimy trail are a pair of L.A. cops ([[Performer~P102677~Russ Meyer~russmeyer]]-veteran [[Performer~P51842~Charles Napier~charlesnapier]] and the miscast [[Performer~P72129~Ann Turkel~annturkel]]), who butt heads with their chief ([[Performer~P69253~Bo Svenson~bosvenson]]), the military, and the scientists who bred the monster -- until the inevitable confrontation, which features a no-holds-barred grudge match between the toothy slime-demon and a chainsaw-wielding Napier. Campy, fun performances by the talented leads (especially [[Performer~P52439~Julie Newmar~julienewmar]] as a psychic who assists the investigation) elevate this material far beyond the limitations of its hoary premise and [[Feature~V1503~Alien~alien]]-esque monster. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
