Review: A follow-up, rather than true sequel, to Fred Olen Rays’ “Biohazard”, this movie follows a new bunch of characters. They try to save the day when an evil genetics corporation called Triton attempts to both clean house and realize their ultimate goal. To that end, a creature (James L. Miles) will kill anyone who contributed DNA to its synthesis. The ousted former security chief (Steve Zurk) teams with a spunky reporter (Susan Fronsoe) and a doctor (Patrick Moran, who also produced and co-wrote the script) who is another former employee of the corporation. “Biohazard: The Alien Force” is reasonably good fun for any devotee of cheesy B’s. All the expected elements are present and accounted for: a wonky script (which Moran wrote with the director, Steve Latshaw), laughable “continuity”, some funny moments, a generous assortment of amateurish acting, an obligatory sex scene, an electronic score (by Jeffrey Walton), and an enjoyably goofy “man in a rubber suit” type monster created by the late, great John Carl Buechler. The villains tend to be more fun to watch than our fairly bland heroes: Tom Ferguson is amusing as a goon named Quint, Catherine Walsh even more amusing as a nefarious scientist named Phillips. Christopher Mitchum, the closest thing the movie has to a “name” actor, is his usual dull self as the main bad guy. It’s not surprising to learn that he only worked on this for two days, since he’s only in scenes by himself until the final third. Drive-in movie fanatics will relish the cameo appearance by filmmaker William Grefe, who plays a barfly; the dialogue between him and his buddy even references classic Grefe movies! Director Latshaws’ son Ryan plays Caitlan Palmers’ son. Executive produced by Ray; his friend and fellow filmmaker Jim Wynorski was one of the co-executive producers. Five out of 10.
