I love Alien
so much I can't help watching all the terrible Z-grade knockoffs, and honestly, I enjoy these too because they show you why Alien
is so good. You can see how Alien
took the same kind of material but elevated it through high-class cinematography, breathtaking sets, the involvement of a real artist designing the monster in the form of H.R. Giger, excellent writing, the best cast you could hope for, etc. A lot of that does come down to the budget since millions of dollars allows you to get better actors, experienced craftsmen, more time for shooting, etc. so I still appreciate these down and dirty clones but the true flaw of these imitations is not being original. But like I said, I still love to watch them, and they usually have some well-done moments at least or they'll make you laugh. Inseminoid is pretty bad but it gets pretty crazy and fun around 32 min in. If you click here
, you can watch it for free on Tubi right now (in the US at least). I really love the posters for it below.
