I remember seeing a movie many years ago on TV. It involved a family man who gets contacted by an assassin who tells him he's been hired by his own wife to kill him. Soon the two men meet, but the hitman is killed by persons unknown before he can divulge any further information. Subsequently the family man's wife is kidnapped and murdered. It eventually transpires that it's the work of a police detective with a grudge against the man for an accident wherein his son was crippled some years before. Can anyone help me with the title?

Afraid not. The only memory I have is of the score being such a blatant ripoff of what Eric Clapton and David Sanbourne did in Lethal Weapon.

Probably a bit of a long shot this one, but back when I was a kid I remember seeing a movie on TV that totally ripped off the score from the Lethal Weapon movies. It definitely wasn't one of the Lethal Weapons, but it had an almost identical soundtrack, with the distinctive combination of electric guitar and saxophone. Beyond that I really can't remember anything about it, other than it was probably an action thriller.

At first, I was thinking of the 1988 film 'Deadly Pursuit' (AKA Shoot to kill) based on the saxophone in the soundtrack but I could be completely wrong.


Is there nothing else you can recall about the film at all?

Tbf it's not mine either, but it's definitely one of the better low-budget sci-fi horrors I've seen. It's schlocky as hell, but it is quite entertaining.

Plus, you know, a woman gets raped by a giant space maggot.

The Creature Below (2016) is a decent English horror made for  about  £12,000.
Probably the best movie with the lowest budget I've seen so far.

Also has faulty posters that give the impression of a totally different movie.

Yeah, none of that shit happens in the movie :laugh:

It's not in any way a good film, but it is a fun film if low-budget horror exploitation is your thing.

It's not really my thing but sometimes I can appreciate the effort, the story or certain elements.
In this case: I read they used the pyramid design from the original Alien script.

James Cameron's directing career got started because he got maggots to move in that movie.

Also what the f**k happens to Robert Englund's character?

I watched it tonight and there was an actual alien rape, although the scenery and the creatures are different from those in the poster.

Haven't seen it, think I'm gonna watch it as well.
I did see the poster that looks like a totally different movie.

Oh wow, thanks, it really looks like it is the one. A Roger Corman's film and a shameless Alien rip-off on top of that, it will be a great watch.

Need help with a Horror film I watched as kid, probably around 1985-1992 at the most, the film itself could be from the 70s, early 80s.
There were some armed guys, maybe military or just explorers... they were crawling through narrow tunnels inside a strange building, like a pyramid, and they were getting killed.
The only clear scene I remember is one of the men getting killed by vines/strings. They came out of the floor as he was crawling and tied around him, cutting through his skin.
