Biohazard: The Alien Force


“The End of the World Has Just Been Born.”
When a genetically-engineered pile of angry alien creature crud develops a hankering for human spinal fluid, the residents of Earth (or at least those Earthlings with spines) are in for a whole heap of bad movie trouble as the shockingly shoddy Biohazard apocalypse begins! From director Steve Latshaw (Vampire Trailer Park, Dark Universe) comes the ultimate in Z-grade, direct-to-video drek, the extraterrestrial terror thriller, Biohazard: The Alien Factor! In this hilariously low rent, unofficial remake/rip-off of the 1990 sci-fi dud Syngenor (come on, you know you were dying for another Syngenor … right?), a mysterious science research corporation called Triton Industries has created a fugly reptilian creature using DNA from unwilling human donors. However, during the course of the experiment, the human host mother carrying the mutant escapes from the laboratory compound, giving (bloody) birth shortly thereafter. Naturally, the highly intelligent “monster baby” grows to Shaquille O’Neal size and begins hunting down and killing its male DNA donors (by sucking the spinal fluid out of their bodies), while at the same time trying to mate with its female donors (would this be considered biohazardous incest?), which offers the filmmakers plenty of golden opportunities for gratuitous topless scenes. For some reason, it’s soon up to an intrepid female reporter and a lunkhead security officer to expose the corporate malfeasance behind this stupid chain of events and destroy the rampaging monster, leading to awful action sequences, awkward rubber monster mayhem and some of the worst acting this side of The Room. Raising far more questions that it can possibly answer (Why all the constantly recurring hysteria over floppy discs? What could make a vehicle explode after lightly bumping into a tree? How did Chris Mitchum prevent himself from laughing on screen?), Biohazard: The Alien Force is a tsunami of unintended hilarity that deserves its OWN rip-off right now! (Dir. by Steve Latshaw, 1995, USA, 88 mins., Rated R) Digital
