Xenogenesis (1978)

Director: James Cameron & Randall Frakes

Starring: William Wisher Jr., Margaret Undiel

More info: IMDb

Plot: A woman and an engineered man are sent in a gigantic sentient starship to search space for a place to start a new life cycle. Raj decides to take a look around the ship. He comes across a gigantic robotic cleaner. Combat ensues.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Probably not but at only 12 minutes it won't kill me.

The only reason to watch this early effort from Cameron (his first as director) is for the stop motion. It's cool, but then any stop motion animation is cool to me. You get a little taste for the Ripley fight at the end of ALIENS (1986) which is neat. It's certainly worth a look for fans of Cameron, sci-fi or stop motion animation.
