Contamination is an Italian horror/sci-fi film that was made to tap into a similar financial vein as Ridley Scott's Alien. - Or so I'm told. The plot is predominantly earthbound and concerns a former astronaut who helps a government agent and a police detective track the source of mysterious alien pod spores to a South American coffee plantation controlled by alien pod clones. Its also known as; Alien Contamination, Contamination: Alien on Earth and Toxic Spawn. Here's a couple of images from the space bit.
