Overview

This unsettling British Alien clone (released in the U.K. under the sleazy title Inseminoid) is set in the labyrinthine underground caverns of a remote planet, where a team of scientific explorers find themselves in the bizarre predicament of defending themselves from a rampaging, pregnant crew member (Judy Geeson). It seems the poor woman has been impregnated by a slime-covered insectoid alien (as depicted in a surreal and truly disgusting flashback), and the resulting hormonal imbalance has transformed her into an inhumanly strong, psychopathic killer. She promptly sets about dismembering and eating everyone in sight (no doubt because of the baby's nutritional requirements) before finally giving birth to a pair of snarling little mutants bearing a more-than-passing resemblance to the terror tykes from the It's Alive series. Aside from the admittedly "unique" premise, this is a fairly standard rip-off -- complete with characters resembling their Alien counterparts -- and the lovely Geeson's rabid, eye-popping performance is more than a bit uncomfortable to watch. The American video release is missing a great deal of the original's graphic violence.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
This is one knockoff that doesn't take its time with anything -- at just 12 minutes in, there's action in those outer space mine shafts, with the first victim in this sci-fi horror tale kick-starting every cliché and already-stolen Alien plot point in the book. Amazingly, Inseminoid then does an about-face and moves into bizarre territory when the movie's army of astronaut buffoons is pitted not against a monster, but, rather, a raging, pregnant, and quite loony blonde in a sweater (Judy Geeson). What follows is simply a stage for gloriously awful dialogue spouted out of amateur actors, whose deaths are more a result of pure idiocy in their dumb-as-nails characters than any kind of suspenseful horror plotting. Also worthy of praise are the wonderfully strange dream sequences where "alien impregnation" takes on a whole new B-movie meaning! Director Norman J. Warren later went onto direct the incredibly inept stinker Bloody New Year (known for its brilliant video cover).
