Reviews:

Biohazard is pretty obvious in its badness. Yes, it’s sometimes very funny, but all of its big moments feel trite, recycled from every movie you’ve ever seen on Mystery Science Theater. I know it seems ridiculous to complain about unoriginal flaws, but when you watch a lot of this kind of stuff, a bad line reading or shitty creature effect just doesn’t cut it anymore.” Tim May VHShitfest

 

 

“The plotline is merely an excuse to move the movie along to the next scene of transients having a barbeque, Congressmen getting flummoxed, and bimbos taking baths. We get everything we could possibly ask for in a made-on-the-cheap creature feature with one eye on the gore and two hands on the titties.

 

There are buckets of blood, a couple of really gratuitous boob shots, and a passing reference to one character’s war atrocities in Vietnam.” Bill Gibron, DVD Verdict

“Awful monster movie, poorly executed by writer-producer-director Fred Olen Ray, who during the closing credits resorts to amusing outtakes, writing off the picture as a joke. An Alien ripoff…” John Stanley, Creature Features

Biohazard went to 21st Century, where it was rarely seen again. It had a trailer made from the Prison Ship footage a minute’s worth of great spaceship stock shots from Corman’s Battle Beyond the Stars. It looked like a big-budget film but I could not get the financing together…” Fred Olen Ray, The New Poverty Row
