Alien Intruder (1993)

How bad is it? It's schlock.
Should you see it? It's barely entertaining schlock.

There are a lot of films about people on a ship getting terrorized by a monster on the loose ("It! The Terror Beyond Space" was the first), but this one is different in that it's men being preyed upon by their own libidos. That suggest some sexual fireworks, but there isn't much (though one woman goes topless about as often as possible). Billy Dee Williams stars, but he's no Lando Calrissian here. Former TV stars Jeff Conaway and Tracy Scoggins are also on board (the latter as the siren who leads to doom). It does give a lesson in paint-by-the-numbers filmmaking and has a few bizarre and uninentionally funny scenes.
