Title: Alien ripoffs and requels
Post by: hawkangel on Aug 26, 2016, 09:30:22 AM
These types of films fascinate me.
You know the ones...mostly they are Italian films with English dubbing but others are low budget American sci-fi movies.
For the most part, they try to emulate the original movie.

I own three of them on blu-ray and I've made it my life mission to collect all of them once released on blu-ray just for fun. :)

Here are the ones I own :

Alien 2

Contamination (Also known as Alien Contamination) :

Galaxy of Terror :

Anyone seen any of these?

Bravo!  You have excellent taste in lurid junk.

I don't have any of these - wish I did.

Wasn't the "Alien 2: On Earth" movie just an Italian attempt at "Aliens"? Thought it got canceled, let alone be on Blu-Ray.

I hope this is an appropriate section for this topic. 1979's Alien was a game-changer as we all know. And it didn't take long for filmmakers to start churning out cash-ins inspired by the Alien formula.

James Cameron himself even worked on some of these projects before moving on to his success with The Terminator and of course, Aliens.

Here are some examples that I can think of right off the top of my head.

I'd really like to know of any more, other than the films I have listed here. I enjoy watching them.

Mutant (aka Forbidden World) - A fun movie. The creature, as you can see in this poster is very much like the one brought onto the Nostromo from LV-426. If you haven't seen it, it's available to watch free on YouTube -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go1eQlpyAaI

Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn - an all-time favorite of mine. This is not so much a 'rip-off' of Alien, but they did attempt to capitalize with the 'Return of the Aliens' nudge. Very good movie, though. I highly recommend it. It also has a sequel called 'Metamorphosis: The Alien Factor' which is very entertaining as well.

Promoted as Alien 2 in Europe, I believe.

I haven't seen this one yet, either. Just learned of it, actually. It is apparently an almost blatant rip-off of Aliens, but with a tinge of Terminator, and it was promoted in Europe as 'Terminator 2.' It's primary title now is Shocking Dark. Also on YouTube. Gonna check it out soon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ca1N4hFFQk

Ah, Roger Corman... one of the truly great film makers.  A man who genuinely understands the real value of exploitation cinema.

After all, he did give us 'Sharktopus'. 

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.moviepostershop.com%2Fsharktopus-movie-poster-2010-1020675201.jpg&hash=e71256229d0abe57850a35ce9361746c0f072020)

Now, if NECA would care to make an action figure of sharktopus, I would buy it.  Especially if it came with wire core tentacles and a bikini clad accessory.

Xtro is very cool. It went pretty crazy with the alien creature's nature and it's amalgamation with the kid's dad and all, but I enjoy it.

Definitely. Especially Dawn Dunlap  :o

I just remembered this one, also. Circa 1996 or so? Death Machine. It has a total Aliens vibe. Cool movie. It was on Netflix, recently, but not sure if it's still there:

Also, Forbidden World (Mutant) was remade in 1991, featuring a young Bryan Cranston. It was titled Dead Space. You can watch it on YouTube as well:

I take back what I said about glorious. It never picks up and is thoroughly boring. The alien itself looks nothing like the poster beyond the head.

Followed up with Mutant, which had been on the list for a long time. Much better than Dead Space! More gore, more trash, more entertaining.

Not a film, though I wasn't sure if I should start a copy of this thread for comics...

Very well written IMO. The Wake has more than a drop of Alien in its' blood from what I've read so far (I've just finished issue #3).

QuoteTHE WAKE. When Marine Biologist Lee Archer is approached by the Department of Homeland Security for help with a new threat, she declines, but quickly realizes they won't take no for an answer. Soon she is plunging to the depths of the Arctic Circle to a secret, underwater oil rig filled with roughnecks and scientists on the brink of an incredible discovery. But when things go horribly wrong, this scientific safe haven will turn into a house of horrors at the bottom of the ocean!

I watched Inseminoid a few years back in the early hours of the morning. From what I remember it was a terrible yet oh so awesome film.  :laugh:

I vaguely remember a film about space truckers from my youth that ended up fighting some sort of robots that had a kind of Alienish head.


So it was just called Space Truckers and even had Charles Dance in it. The trailer even used the Red Alert track that Resurrection's did.  :laugh:

I actually watched this on the big screen in 1980...(much to my shame)...all part of having dragged people to watch 'ALIEN' the year before and was having withdrawal symptoms.

Best bowling-alley climax till 'There Will Be Blood' in 2007.

Movies physically change as they get older.  They grow warts and funny hair styles. They mutate and change while you don't watch them.  They become something else other than what they once were. 

I can testify to this because, your memory - like mine - is infallible... and what's more, how can we both be wrong? 

The truth is, movies mutate over time.  They change while we aren't watching until they emerge, pretending that the viewer has changed; and yet so many people will say "I remember this movie differently."

How can so many people be so wrong?  I tell you, it's the movies that change.  Movies will modify themselves over the years, wear funny clothes and mutate into something ugly.  They shift their content, ambience and political sensibilities while you are not looking. 

It's the only explanation when everyone is wowed by such cinematic spectacles 20 years ago and today these same spectacles have become laughable in everyone's eyes.

Don't trust movies, I tell you.  They will stab you in the back one day.  lol.

Despite its numerous flaws, Alien 3 doesn't seem dated to me.  The puppetry effects were always awful, but it's otherwise still a beautiful film to look at and shaved heads never go out of style.

In fact, I think it's aged better than Aliens has.
Title: Re: Alien ripoffs and requels
Post by: windebieste on Sep 01, 2016, 05:19:26 AM
Of all the movies, 'ALIEN 3' has actually aged the best.  It's got a lot to do with great art direction and very little present in the way of the depiction of technology - which is right up front in all the other movies. 

As for the dodgy lighting on the puppets that don't match the backgrounds they are composited onto, there's nothing there that can't be addressed with today's digital technology.  Which is a kind of irony, actually.

...also known as 'Deadly Spawn 2'...

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gstatic.com%2Ftv%2Fthumb%2Fdvdboxart%2F54798%2Fp54798_d_v8_aa.jpg&hash=5fef683ca49442c942c2d11324528746f79e994a)

"Metamorphosis: The Alien Factor is the unofficial sequel to the obscure low budget 80's gore fest known as The Deadly Spawn. The Deadly Spawn was an extremely low budget indie horror film that was made by a bunch of very talented creative people who one day decided to get together and do a horror movie on their own; with their friends and collegues as actors. They shot the film with their own money, during the weekends. Basically, The Deadly Spawn is what happens when a bunch of sci-fi/horror fans get together to do a  film about what they love, monsters! To its credit, I will say that even though The Deadly Spawn was a low budget affair, and technically it does have its faults, it's a very creative film, and I applaud those guys for having made such a cool little film with so little. Ted A. Bohus was the producer of that project, which I consider a gem of indie horror, I mean, this film is indy horror in the truest sense. After their first film venture (which surfaced on VHS during the 80s) they decided to try and do the sequel. Thing is that even though this "sequel" plays with the same premise of aliens coming down to earth to munch on humans,  this second film is completely unrelated to the first one story wise. Ted A. Bohus originally intended to do a straight sequel, but ended up doing this slightly more ambitious (but still well within b-movie territory) sequel. It was made with a bit more money then their first film. What was the result? "

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the two competing "It's Alien, but in the ocean!" movies, both released in 1989 (which, incidentally, is the same year Cameron released The Abyss).  Or maybe they're not considered obscure enough.

Shocking Dark Terminator 2 Alienators is quite possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen, with sequences lifted shit for shoot from Aliens but with none of the talent.

'My mother said monsters don't exist. But it's not true.'
'Well, honey, the truth is sometimes bad things happen.'

The funny thing is that James Cameron released The Abyss later that same year and even though it wasn't a monster movie, I was already tired of the general premise by then thanks to DeepStar Six and Leviathan.

Out of all the ones mentioned in this thread, I've only seen Leviathan and DeepStar Six. Can't remember being especially enthralled by either, although, "Say 'ah', motherf**ker!" is a gloriously naff one-liner. Of the two Leviathan was definitely better, I can't really remember anything about DeepStar Six except that Miguel Ferrer explodes.

I also saw a bit of Inseminoid years ago, but I thought it was kinda crap so I turned it off. If I'd realised it's Alien tendencies at the time I might've stuck with it.

I've been wanting to see Lifeforce for a while, mainly because of O'Boobies. I mean O'Bannon. O'Bannon.

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Aug 31, 2016, 07:30:40 AMI vaguely remember a film about space truckers from my youth that ended up fighting some sort of robots that had a kind of Alienish head.

So it was just called Space Truckers and even had Charles Dance in it. The trailer even used the Red Alert track that Resurrection's did.  :laugh:

Fun fact - that film's supposed to have the sentry gun props from Aliens in it somewhere.

Parasite -Recently traded for an old VHS of this. I knew it would be right up my alley. It is a very early Charles Band production, and also stars a very young Demi Moore. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape where a scientist is on the run from a corporation, as he is the creator of a parasitic weapon. One of those parasites happen to be growing in his stomach, and there is a a head-bursting sequence.

It's not really an Alien rip-off, but you should check out Outland because visually it looks exactly like Alien (a lot of the same production crew worked on it). I mean it could literally be taking place at the same time in a different part of space. Not a bad movie either, although it's not horror.

Forbidden World aka. Mutant is one of my favorite (and guilty pleasure as it is). It has absolutely great lead character and babes. Some scenes are decent too.

In Galaxy of Terrors the crew are bunch of halfwits, on pair with Prometheus.  It has biggest production value ( and Lifeforce), wih really stunning sets,  but that's all I can say about it being good. Well actually gigant maggot rape scene is good too.

Indeed.  They could literally transplant Sean Connery's character into an Aliens prequel about the infestation of the colony and he wouldn't seem even slightly out of place.

Though, someone should have let Jerry Goldsmith know that, because his score sounds like a continuation of some of the stuff he did in Alien. Creepy, unsettling. There's even bits and pieces of his motifs from Alien in there. The one that sticks out is you can hear bits that sound like they come right out of the EGG chamber sequence.




Also, I do love Leviathan. I just wish the ending wasn't so by-the-number and silly... And

Not an Alien film, but check out the first Pumpkin Head movie. It's made by Stan Winston and the creature FX looks fantastic for a B movie. Pumpkin Head basically has a Xenomorphs body with a pumpkin shaped head. Like I said it's not a space monster but a demon from hell out for revenge, that looks very xenomorph ish. Also has Lance henriksen in it and the plot is decent.

Hybrid (1997) - probably only worth watching for the lesbian shower scene.  It has a creature attacking a combat unit in an abandoned base on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Directed by Fred Olen Ray, probably most known for Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers.

Salutations! :)  "Scared to Death" the 1980 film from Lone Star Films. 

This sample page and photo was published in the December 1980 issue  of "Questar". The article was written by Steve Rubin with the pictures copyright Lone Star Films. I would check out the review of this movie on DvD on Amazon by A.Snyder. This is the first of 2 films with the  Syngenor. This movie is free to Amazon Prime Members.

I see that 'Lifeforce' got mentioned, but I wouldn't want to call that an Alien rip-off. It's a batshit crazy movie about space vampires. Well, maybe the beginning in space where they enter the abandoned alien ship.

'Life' on the other hand is a total (but pretty decent) rip-off of Alien and 'Pitch Black' borrows a lot from Aliens as well.

The first act of Lifeforce definitely has an Alien-vibe, but once they get to Earth it's hard to label it a rip-off.

When I was a little kid, I watched Alien from the Deep (original Italian title: "Aliens del Abismo", French title: "Alien : La Créature des Abysses") and the French title was even more misleading than the other ones, meaning literally Alien : The creature from the abysses".

So I honestly thought this terrible, terrible movie was somehow PART OF THE ALIEN SERIES. I was convinced of it for YEARS. Until I was 16 or something I was still trying to reconcile it with the Alien lore and timeline.

There is a game called Event 0. You are the only human alive inside a spaceship and you have to find out what happened with the rest of the crew. Your only company is, as you might suspect, an artificial intelligence called Kaizen. So yeah, the Alien side of the force is strong with this one...

And speaking of rip offs, this Star Trek scene reminds me of Brett's extended death...

Really liked all those movies from the 90's. They are flawed clearly, but nontheless really enjoyable in their own way.

Absolutely! I'd have to say tho, I probably enjoyed Mimic the most out of all of them, especially the Director's Cut

I agree, I actually think it's the best of the bunch.

Indeed. The Relic is the most underrated imo. Particularly because the monster in that film is the most badass creature design I'd seen in a film at the time

From about 2:30 to 4:00. Bit of an obscure one (to say the least)!

I always thought the design of the kothoga from The Relic would have made for a better predator hound than either of the ones we've actually gotten so far. The mouth is similar enough to suggest it might have resulted from the same evolutionary advantage that gave the predators their distinctive mandibles, but different enough to avoid looking like someone just grafted their own face onto their dog.

I quite liked the hunting hounds in Predators. The ones in The Predator, not so much.

Any films remind you of Alien for no apparent reason?

This trailer always played when I wanted to watch one of the films on the Quadrilogy DVD in the UK:
https://youtu.be/EXiNVFmv0UU

So the phrase "God only knows where I'd be without you." Always reminds me of Alien.

Does Queen Slug For A Butt counts as rip-off of Alien Queen ?

Maybe, but to be fair Queen Slug for a Butt was just a ripoff of termites.

You can say that about Alien Queen herself
