When an alien contagion is released aboard a spaceship transforming its victims into demonic flesh-eaters, the crew must either destroy the infected or join them. Steve Railsback — yes, the dude from Turkey Shoot and Blue Monkey — stars as Tarver.
The Pandora is a freight transport carrier headed toward Earth with a desperately needed new energy supply called Thanatos, which many of the crew members are suspicious of. Then they get a distress call from another ship and no one on board has seen Alien.
Nurses from that ship end up being pirates and in the midst of a battle, one of them gets splashed with Thanatos, which turns her into a plaguer. Soon, there are so many of them that they take the ship straight for Earth.
Writer/director Brad Sykes was inspired by Alien — of course — but also the films Prince of Darkness, The Thing and Demons when making this.
Plaguers is now available for the first-time on blu ray and DVD from Wild Eye Releasing. You can learn more at the official homepage.
You can also find this on Amazon Prime.
DISCLAIMER: This movie was sent to us via a digital screener by the Wild Eye Releasing PR team. Wild Eye Releasing since sent a Blu-ray. They also sent a whole bunch of stickers and yes, you can be jealous that I have an awesome Shark Exorcist sticker now in my home. This has no bearing on our review.
