Alien 2: On Earth / Alien 2 - Sulla terra (1980)

1.0 out of 5

This is an absolute blatant ripoff of the Ridley Scott classic film Alien, but in name only as this film is set on Earth rather than in space.

Small Alien living rocks are bought back to Earth from a failed space mission. Unknown to a group of cave explorers these alien rocks have found residence and shelter within a small town that lies next to a large subterranean cave. One explorer decides to keep one rock as a souvenir, thus carrying the Alien rock creature into the cave.

Most of the film revolves around aimless scenes of these explorers walking about the cave for what seems like hours and hours often portrayed as doing very little and often completely nothing and the viewer will most likely feel that they are also lost within a maze like cave while watching this poor, shocking attempt at film making.

Ok, so there is some alright gore scenes but this is a small compensation for a boring plot and a rather hastily put together Italian cash in of Ridley's Scott's classic.

Perhaps the worse Italian Alien ripoff ever produced.
