1984. A secret facility. A strain of mildew being developed as a bio weapon. When an accidental leak reveals that the fungus is actually an alien lifeform, the facility's only hope is the mercenary Toxic.
The year is 1984. Researchers at the secretive Bentan Labs are celebrating the completion of their latest weapons project: a previously unknown type of mildew, capable of spreading and consuming any kind of vegetation... and ideal for attacking stockpiles of enemy food. When a sponsor is accidentally infected, the mildew's spores are set loose across the facility. As aggressive soldiers flood the complex and the infected staff begin to mutate, the survivors come to realize that the mildew is in fact an alien creature! To avoid an agonising death, the remaining scientists must join forces with "Toxic" - a mysterious mercenary who has infiltrated the building on a covert mission. Will anyone escape the clutches of this out of control fungus and the army of crazed mutants it has created? Body melts, alien mutations, tons of action and geysers of gore await you. The '80s are back!Written by
To give this a review I first have to set the frame for the review. You can't compare this to "ordinary" movies. This is a splatter-comedy spoof-sorta-thing which gives plenty of nods to others before it and it's very low budget of course.
I do appreciate what they did with their budget though, especially the SFX-team.
If you like Braindead, Street Trash, Bad Taste, Death Warmed Up, Troma films and.... well you see where I'm going with this, you probably should check this out.
The main keeping of this film is the effects themselves. It contains everything you could wish for. Mildew turning people to zombies (kind of), exploding body parts, colourful ooze, melting skin, gushing blood and whatnot. There is really no consistency in what the aforementioned mildew can do.
The dialog is just all over the place with the colonel delivering some relly cliché lines from start to finish. Acting is so so and the actions of the characters, considering what happens in the lab, are just completely out the window.
You really have to take this film for what it is. It's a splatter roller coaster comedy.
I give it a 4 because at least it was entertaining in it's own hilarious way.
