4.0 out of 5 stars Part Alien...Part Human...All Nightmare 11 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite monster movies of the early 1980's.
When a research experiment on a desert planet goes wrong Colby (Jesse Vint) and his robot side-kick are sent to assist the scientists.
Whilst supposedly attempting to find ways to genetically incease food supplies the scientists conduct an illegal experiment and create Subject 20, a genetically engineered alien human hybrid.
When the creature escapes due to a particularly hair-brained act of stupidity it starts to grow and develops a taste for blood. The creature's first manifestation is pretty poor, like a shrivelled octopus but later on as it mutates our toothsome menace trims the crew numbers down nicely....cognitive retributions(sic).
There's plenty of totally gratiutous nudity, lots of screaming and running down dark corridors and bucket loads of slime for the special effects. The electronic music score by Susan Justin is pretty good too, I've not seen this movie for years and still remembered the theme tune.
If you like mad B-movies please forgive the space battle in the first 5 minutes which goes off at a slight tangent and just enjoy the rest of the film.
Unfortunately there are no extras at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rampant Hamburger 13 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dreadfull enough to be entertaining. "Scientists" and others too thick to see obvious hazards in front of them get eaten. Forget the Killer tomatoes this is the killer hamburger with legs a good monster romp.

3.0 out of 5 stars challenging, low-key and weird exotic sci-fi 5 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Imagine the first Alien flick as a crackwhore! .. The soundtrack : Sounds like an evil and harsh Tangerine Dream. The Alien (looks a bit like the alien) : It looks like Alien on crack as I sad. The actors : Awful but bloody entertaining none-the-less. The effects: Awful but great. BUT! .. It's actualy boring, and the lightning makes it quite hard to see what actualy happens (kinda sad realy) ..

5.0 out of 5 stars Forbidden World aka Mutant 6 April 2010
Subject 20 was created to save the galaxy from starvation...... until it got hungry With the galaxy on the brink of starvation,the scientists on planet Xarbia had to create a new form of food. they did,a mass of edible protein known simply as Subject 20.It seemed to hold all the answers.Until Subject 20 got hungry.When the news filters back.Commander Mike Colby is sent to investigate.In the dimly lit confines of the research station ,Subject 20 is on the loose.Every shadow now becomes a threat.And in the aching silence of space the terror is deafening. This is a first rate cult movie from 1982, (the video sleeve is far superior to the dvd sleeve shown,also the German dvd which i own along with the video,the German dvd includes the trailor photo gallary and the soundtrack which is pretty cool by Susan Justin. i even took my email address from this movie. dialogue is gritty in the vain of (john carpenter's assault on precint 13 another great cult movie)Earls going to bag himself a Dingwopper. the scenery and props are very good.although some of the opening sceanes are in another Roger Corman movie (battle beyond the stars which is inferior to this movie. Directed by Allan Holizaman, written by Tim Suhrstedt,special effects/creature features by J C Buechler all well known in the movie cult world of sci-fi horror most of the stars have featured in many movies over the years Micheal Bowen and Scott Paulin who prehaps have moved into the main stream of actors,Jessie Vint and his late brother Alan starred in several cult movies of the 70s before moving on to write and direct, Jessie was in Silent Running briefly in Dark Angel the Dolph Lundgren movie.June Chadwick was in V the mini series.
