Storyline

It is the year 2022. A mysterious systems failure causes the crew of a spaceship to be stranded on the dark side of the moon, while rapidly running out of fuel and oxygen. They are surprised to discover a NASA space shuttle floating in space, and board it in the hope of salvaging some supplies. One by one, the crew is possessed and killed, and it is up to Paxton Warner to find the links between the dark side of the moon, the Bermuda Triangle, and the Devil himself.

Excellent!
22 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why would anyone give this movie any bad mention? It may have had some similarities to other science fiction movies in the past but so what? All space movies have similarities! The acting was great and the plot is imaginative and it is paced well and has suspense and it's a fine little gem of a movie that anyone can enjoy. I never heard of it in 1990 when it came out. How could such a good movie not make waves? Whoever made this did a fine job! I always wondered how some movies slip through the cracks unseen. I found this gem on netflix and will tell my friends to see it. Grab some popcorn and get lost in space for awhile. It's worth it!
