find naked corpses everywhere with no apparent cause of death. But each
victim is marked by a bruise on her stomach and is covered by a green

stop these deaths or will the Muze be destined to the same end as the
ill fated Zogne? Why was the Zogne carrying the illegal drug known as

questions and more.
The rodent saves the day!
It has become a nightly ritual for me to watch h-anime before
sleeping because I have a bad case of insomnia. I guess it
was not a good idea to choose Alien from the Darkness because
it was like a bolt from the blue to find that instead of making
me drowsy, the alien kept me awake.
Plotwise, it's the usual space tentacle flick where all girls,
no matter how intelligent they seem, succumb to death in the
most...uh, sexually stimulating manner. The upside to this
is that everyone looks pretty. The artwork and animation are
decent. Every girl seems to have a distinct personality that
you don't usually see in h-anime. Too bad they all end up...well,
you know how it is in horror movies.
Alien from the Darkness was probably one of those few horror
hentai pictures that had me really hanging in suspense. Well,
for one, there was a lot of running around and evading tentacles.
I just absolutely abhor chase scenes. They often give me heart
attacksfiguratively speaking, of course. Second, the
supposedly geeky computer analyst did not seem to be as intelligent
as most anime nerds. I was up on my bed almost screaming,
"Idiot! The solution is right in front of you!"
Because of her inability to make use of her mental faculty
properly, the chase felt like it wasn't ever going to end.
Thank heavens for her cute pet rodent Einstein. I'm not really
sure whether he's a ferret, a guinea pig, or just a very big
mouse, but he's definitely the hero in my book.
