Contamination (1980)
90 min.
Directed by Luigi Cozzi.
With Ian McCulloch, Louise Marleau, Gisela Hahn, Carlo De Mejo, Carlo Monni, Marino Masé.
Enjoyable (& gory) Italian ALIEN clone has some interesting things going for it all on its own (believe it or not).

A cruiser enters New York harbor with the entire crew dead & inexplicably torn to pieces. In the hull, examiners find strange, green eggs...pulsating.

One explodes violently when touched, spraying (& contaminating) the nearby investigators.

Seconds later, the men inexplicably explode...their intestines savagely combustible. Could the eggs be deadly organisms from outer space, and who could be importing them into the environs of our planet...and why?

McCulloch (from Fulci's Zombi 2) stars as the ex-astronaut out to solve the mystery.
