Ah, childbirth. Nature's greatest wonder, and at the same time bloody
revolting. Gynaecology mixes with Sci Fi in Inseminoid, a revolting excursion
into the "what if?" world of alien impregnation. Whaddya mean
it sounds like a cheap Alien rip-off? Did John Hurt have a clear
plastic tube shoved up his fanny as he lay in the middle of an empty disco
dance floor? I think not.
Yes, if you've ever wondered exactly what lengths a woman would go to
to protect her unborn alien twins, wonder no more, as Judy Geeson goes
through a very quick pregnancy and eschewes the usual cravings (chocolate,
pizzas with banana on, the smell of tarmac etc) and instead starts ripping
her crew-mates limb from limb and scarfing down their remains.
Inseminoid positively revels in its cheapness, with the lighting
turned right down low in an attempt to disguise the cardboard sets and
hastily improvised motorbike helmets. So what if we can't see much and
the sound's all muffled? There's a fair amount of gore - and not just
once the pregnant Geeson starts running amok with her assorted sharp instruments.
For some reason best known to the producers, within a couple of minutes
of the film starting, one of the astronauts has already chopped her own
foot off with a chainsaw. Now that's class.
And let's not forget that if you're in a bit of a rush, but still fancy
watching a few violent deaths, you could always just fast forward to the
end and watch everyone die again as the end credits roll. Now that's what
I call a film. No mucking about there.
And you get to see Miss Geeson in the nude, if you like that sort
