| Avoid at all costs!!
In the process of recovering from a heavy cold I have had trouble sleeping, haha! I thought lets catch up with some cable movies. So in the early hours I stumble across 'Origin Unknown' ('The Alien Within' US Title). Ah, Roddy McDowell nice surprise, NOT. This is a cheap made for TV pile of alien vomit. Why is the picture so dark? I ask, to enable a spooky atmospheric setting? NO, because the budget did not stretch to any set.

Have I not seen some of these plot lines before? Yes the entire Alien series is ripped apart by this shoddy waste of time and effort.

Avoid like the plague. 0.5/10
