In Space, No One Can Hear Your Copyright Infringement (Alien Knockoffs)

THIS WEEK: Creature (1985), Creepozoids (1987), Shocking Dark AKA Terminator II (1987)

Knockoff Month has jumped from fake Terminators to a scene-for-scene ripoff of Aliens (1986) inexplicably marketed as a Terminator sequel in Italy. Speaking of beloved knockoff auteurs, David DeCoteau once again makes his mark on the pod with the only Alien ripoff where Linnea Quigley takes a lengthy shower during an apocalyptic drought. Finally, we cover William Malone's Creature (1985) because we figured at least one of these Alien knockoffs should be set in space and feature Klaus Kinski eating a sandwich.
