"I won't be back"

Films: Shocking Dark (1989)

Alias: The Aliens, Sam Fuller

Type: Alien, Man-Made (Sam)

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Imagine if a bunch of European filmmakers watched some of the most popular sci-fi-horror movies at the time, snorted a pile of crack cocaine, and claimed that everything the films did they could do better. Then, you're left with this unholy amalgamation of "Aliens" and "The Terminator".

History: In the year 2000, Venice is in ruins. A dark cloud has loomed over it and caused the pollution levels to rise indescribably. Even worse, disgusting aliens have come to stay because of it. And even while there are those willing to fight the beasts, a cyborg by the name of Samuel Fuller has gone rogue, so everyone's boned.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Just about every alien is blown to kingdom come in their nest, and Sam gets a self-destruction device tossed to him, destroying him.

Powers/Abilities: Sam can emit a deafening scream.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Sam is trying way too hard to be Schwarzenegger, and just comes off as a show-off. The aliens though are rather ugly to look at, and are equally vicious. So in the end, at least one creature looked a bit scary.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Alienators", and of course, "Aliens 2" and "Terminator 2". Those last two titles resulted in this thing being forced to be called its more formal title due to the blatant plagiarism.

-For something trying to be some big-budget blockbuster, only one set was made for this film, and it shows.

Oh, Italy! You scamps!
I suppose Skynet was drunk when she came up with this.
Alien? Terminator? Make up your mind!
Muuuuch better.
