Trivia

The name of the agricultural factory is 'BioTek Agronomics". Many people assume it's misspelled when in fact it was misspelled on purpose. Using "BioTek" rather than "Biotech" avoided issues with real corporations that used the proper spelling, and "agronomics" is a play at the words "agricultural" and "economics" put together.

not bad for its time
14 April 2006 | by (Rain City, Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a bad film for its time. The cast is especially good. Sam Waterston and Jeffery Demunn play very well off each other and Kathleen Quinlen is a criminally underused actress, so it is always nice to see her.

The plot line has echoes of George Romero's earlier paen to paranoia and bio warfare spills 'The Crazies'. This film also pre-figures Resident Evil and 28 Days Later but played on a much smaller scale. Watching a film shot in the mid 1980's now serves as a reminder of just how bombastic and over-the-top most current films have become.

A modest effort but entertaining nonetheless.
