THE PLOT:

When Shuttle SC-37 is found a drift after a discover on Mars. It is taken to a space station to run test. But when the station power supply malfunctions and explodes. A handful of survivors takes shutte SC-37 back to earth which will take way to long. To make matters worse, there is a slime stowaway that may or may not be responsible for the crews death.

THE OPINION:

A very good movie for the mid-1980s. Although I was a little disappointed on two factors. Factor 1, they assumed the alien was hostile just because it was slightly unpleasant to look at and factor 2, if you look at the poster it implies will change into a cool monster from the slimy one, that never happened. But all and all a good movie. I GIVE IT (7 STARS)

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+EFFECTS (Good model work and fairly good animatronics)
+STORY (Although generic story the writer makes it work)
+ENDING (Without giving it away, the ending was very surprising for an alien on a ship killing people movie)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

-PREDIGEST (I didnt like the humans automatically attacking the alien just because he was a slimy slug)

AND FINALLY....

-FALSE ADVERTISING (My biggest complaint is the fact the poster has two different monsters on the cover but only one in the movie. If this movie was not 20 years old I would sew for false advertising)
