Storyline

Marooned by design in a strange asteroid inhabited by bizarre creatures and mind-boggling living biological transmutations, the audacious American astronaut, Earl Jensen, miraculously heads back to Earth and his now grown-up daughter to tie up some loose ends, after twenty long years in oblivion. Bent on revenge, Jensen won't rest until he finds those responsible for his intergalactic tragedy; however, this time, he is not alone, as his powerful, yet abominable mutant friends are, too, in the mood for retribution. Now, no force on Earth can stop Earl. But, who is behind the long-lost cosmonaut's personal disaster? Written by Nick Riganas

My teen years relived!
11 March 2001 | by Seb-45See all my reviews

Wow.. A great film!!! I was amazed in front of this visual masterpiece that brought me back to my teen years (when I loved watching gores and sex in Heavy Metal or in mangas). But even more to the sex and gore is the funny and critical story that makes Mutant Aliens A great film in its kind.

"Chapeau" to Bill!

Seb
