an exploration of the
caves beneath the surface of Jupiter's moon Xeno, a scientific research
team activates a dormant alien creature. It's first primal instinct is
'procreation.' The alien immediately attacks and impregnates Sandy, one
of the female crew members (played by Judy Geeson). Her pregnancy develops
at an alarming rate and Sandy is completely obsessed with protecting her
unborn litter. She begins a relentless massacre against her colleagues.
Often this film has been dismissed as just another [albeit excessively
gory] Alien ripoff. But, significantly Norman J Warren began working
on this movie a year before the world was introduced to Ridley Scott's
SciFi masterpiece. Warren claims that he wasn't influenced by that movie
at all, in fact he declared that he'd "never even heard of it until
his shoot was completed." Reportedly, the release of the film was
delayed at the whim of producer Run Run Shaw (Shaw Bros) who was concerned
that there were already too many Shaw financed 'Space' movies in the marketplace
[specifically Meteor and the upcoming big-budget Blade Runner].
As a result, INSEMINOID didn't hit the theaters
until 1980, six months after Alien.

movies are a radical departure from the gothic styled productions of Hammer
Studios. They are usually set in cold, stark modern [or post-modern] settings
