Beasties is a 1989 film, originally titled Bionaut, by Steven Paul Contreras.



The term "Beasties" is never used in the film, and is clearly designed to invoke Gremlins (which the box cites along with Back to the Future as influences), although the creatures are not the main focus of the film.


The film deals with a "Bionaut" (living) vessel having traveled back in time and releasing small reconnaissance creatures that become violent when they get too far away from the Bionaut.

Describes the carnage as an extraterrestrial crafts lands on an area with many amorous teens.


It was bought by David DeCoteau and 200 VHS copies were distributed in 1991. There were only 200 copies sold, before it was withdrawn for poor sales. It is mentioned as the worst movie ever made.
