Contamination (1980)

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.

A helmet in a helmet...That's new.

  1. For some real-life spacesuits, a light cloth helmet was worn inside the spacesuit helmet to hold earphones and microphones steady. You can see it here on Gagarin's suit:

    However, a crash helmet? Yeah, that's new.
