Released in Italy in 1989 under the name Terminator 2, this movie is more of a rip-off of Aliens. In fact, it's like Aliens, Terminator, Ghosthouse, and Space Mutiny!
It just saw it's first US release In June 2018 under the current title Shocking Dark.
"In a polluted future Venice researchers work to improve the situation. One day, unknown forces start killing them. A team of soldiers and a couple of civilians is sent to investigate. Soon, they encounter strange murderous creatures."
And the ENDING! It really needs to be seen to be believed!
I could not agree more with the recommendation to Riff this movie. You've already smacked down Bruno Mattei with RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR, but his SHOCKING DARK is absolutely one of my favorite bad movies of all time, and I'd love to see it get the Rifftrax treatment. It's a story-beat-for-story-beat retelling of ALIENS that turns into a TERMINATOR rip off for the last 10 or 15 minutes of the movie, and it's even got some of the same "actors" from RATS! What's not to love?
Unintentionally funny. I mean there is so much screaming you'll need ear plugs. Some funny bits too like when a character botches their lines or forgets another character's name and so uses their own name! Seriously messed up on many levels.
I was planning to request this one myself. It's so wonderfully bad I like watching it un-riffed, so imagine the masterpiece the guys could turn this into. Really hope this one happens.
It’s the aliens script almost verbatim

They released this as T2? How sneaky!
