Branded as a "video nasty" in the UK, director Luigi Cozzi's Contamination takes the premise of Ridley Scott's classic Alien and peppers it with exploding guts galore and a dangerously infectious soundtrack from celebrated Italian prog-rockers Goblin (Deep Red, Suspiria). A cargo ship drifts up the Hudson River. Its crew: all dead, their bodies horribly mutilated, turned inside out by an unknown force. Its freight: boxes upon boxes of glowing, pulsating green eggs. It soon becomes clear that these eggs are not of this planet, and someone intends to cultivate them here on Earth. But who? And to what end? Starring Italian horror veteran Ian McCulloch (Zombie Flesh Eaters), Contamination is an ultra-violent sci-fi epic that really gets under the skin. In space, no one can hear you scream - but on Earth, the terror rings loud and clear!

Press Quotes

Contamination is the Arrow Video standard. Absolutely perfect A/V, high quality supplements, and gorgeous packaging.

     —Dread Central

Contamination looks fantastic... One of my favorite Arrow releases to date. Just a stunning release all around.

     —Bloody Disgusting

Pulsating alien eggs, ham acting and liberal amounts of cheese make for a satisfyingly silly sci-fi omelette

     —Movie Gazette

McCulloch is always a hoot to watch

     —DVD Drive-In

 a supremely fun watch

     —The Film Connoisseur
