Storyline

Astronomers investigate a mysterious meteorite shower in a rural English farm field, - exceptional because the space rocks all fell in a V formation. Dr. Richard Arden, preeminent in the field of extraterrestrial study, is not permitted to accompany his colleagues, including his girlfriend Lee Mason, because he is still recovering from the effects of a recent motor accident. The scientists are summarily taken over by some alien force, and others in the area are dying from a mysterious "crimson plague," which covers their bodies with drops of blood. Temple seems the only person immune to both maladies, so if he can discover the reason for this immunity, he may yet foil the alien plan to take earthlings back to the moon for their own sinister purposes.

Pretty tame alien movie.
9 April 2003 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

Several unknown objects come crashing down into some farmland. A team of scientists goes to check it out. The objects appear to be meteorites but the scientists are skeptical. It turns out that the objects contain some sort of alien lifeform which is able to inhabit the bodies of human beings.

Just what are the aliens up to? Well...I won't spoil it for you but their motives here on Earth are actually pretty dull.

Robert Hutton is absolutely laughable as a middle-aged scientist who likens himself as some sort of "Rambo" tough guy. He sneaks around, blows stuff up and avoids alien death squads which are out to kill him.

This all probably sounds somewhat interesting but the action sequences are short and poorly executed. A lifeless screenplay certainly doesn't help matters. I will say that the acting is passable and the direction occasionally stands out. Unfortunately, the tepid storyline and silly main character get in the way of any positive aspects of this film.
