“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

aka Horror Planet How bad is it? It's budget shows. An "Alien" rip-off. Should you see it? On a slow night, perhaps.
An alien creature impregnates an interplanetary archaeologist, causing her to murder her crewmates. There's plenty of gore and some edited sex and, after a slow start, it moves along briskly. Judy Geeson and Victoria Tennant are the name actors. The budget was under $2 million and at times there are laughs to be had when the cheapness shows. Still, considered to most of the films on this blog, it's a high-budget classic.
