Alternate titles : Alienators, Contaminator, Hell, Terminator 2.

Tagline : "The future cities are crumbling ghost towns, polluted by toxic gases."

Shocking DarkSet in the future, in Venice of all places, the city has been evacuated due to high levels of pollution in the air and water. The only people still active in the zone are soldiers, who's job it is to prevent wayward visitors, and a few scientists, who manage the cities processing plants which are supposed to be clearing the air and water.

When their command centre gets a mayday from a couple of their men at the plant, claiming they're being attacked by an unknown force, they despatch a group of elite soldiers to find out what's going on. Taking with them a couple of scientists, and a representative from the company to check that the plant is still OK, they head off to the processing plant, where the film quickly descends into a rip off of "Aliens". As strange creatures leap out of the dark and attack them.

Along the way they find a 'Newt' type character, who's been hiding from the creatures in the tunnels underneath the plant. And then when it looks like they've finally wiped them all out, they discover the company rep is actually a murderous Android, programmed to keep everything quiet about what really happened there (think, Ash from the original "Alien" crossed with Arnie's "Terminator" character) and the ending descends into a rip off of the finale of "The Terminator". As they're chased around the complex by the killer robot.

Directed by the infamous Bruno Mattei, of "Zombie Creeping Flesh" infamy (so you know what you're in for), this one's as dumb and cheesy as low budget Italian films get. The film has been released under a number of alternate titles including, quit unbelieveably, "Terminator 2" in some countries. Coming out a full year before James Cameron's official sequel, despite the fact it had nothing to do with Terminator and was more akin to Aliens.

One for the morbidly curious only, lovers of Italian B-movies will probaboy recognise Alex McBride and Geretta Gerretta who both appear as soldiers.

Overall Marks : 3/10.
