Storyline

A crew of scientists arrives on a far, cold planet to examine archaic artifacts of unknown origin. They discover that their German enemies already have a ship there. When they seek their help after a failed landing, they only find the Germans' bodies, obviously slaughtered by one of the archaic creatures, awoken to new life. Now the alien is after them.

Trivia

The opening scene where the scientist is asked to stand next to the creature's tube to "give it some scale" is almost a word-for-word copy of the scene from Jaws where Hooper asks Brody to stand at the stern of the Orca to get a picture with the shark. See more »

Goofs

The captain's name is Davison, but Wendy Schaal's character Sladen calls him "Davidson" about 75 minutes in, just after they electrocute the creature. See more »

Quotes

In space, no one can hear you scream for a bigger budget.
16 October 2006 | by quadbastardSee all my reviews

This movie is clearly a low-budget Alien knock-off. A hand full of explorers, comprised of a cast of television regulars, investigate Titan, one of the moons orbiting Saturn, for a life-form, that's seemingly done away with all of the previous crew that visited for the same reason. The acting is pretty much sub-standard, and the script is a case of sometimes it's so bad, it's funny, especially if you watch it late enough to grab you in a relaxed frame of mind. The ever entertaining Klaus Kinski makes a guest appearance here, albeit brief, gives this a bit of a shot in the arm, with some funny nonsensical lines and casual demeanor in what's otherwise meant to be a tense serious situation. The Creature itself is obviously a guy in a big rubber suit, but you could arguably say the same thing for Alien. The other effects in the movie are OK, with a notably gooey pumpkin head explosion in one scene. All in all, not altogether bad, but there's not enough here to sustain the 97 odd minute running time. Maybe worth catching on a slow night.
