Cheezy, but painless sci-fi fun!
29 July 2001 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

Well, I've seen a couple of Kevin Lindenmuth's films (ADDICTED TO MURDER and VAMPIRES AND OTHER STEREOTYPES), and this one falls somewhere in the middle. It's not as polished or as interesting as ADDICTED, but it's not nearly as awful as VAMPIRES.

OUT OF DARKNESS is the first installment of the ALIEN AGENDA series that deals with the themes of alien invasion, paranoia and murder.

There's really not much that one can say about this movie. It's just kind of there. It's not a terrible production. Directors Kevin Lindenmuth and Mick McCleery manage to maintain a decent look throughout the movie and manage to get some interesting performances from Sasha Graham, Scooter McCrae and Marcus Zanders. They also go light on the special effects, which is a good thing in this case, since these guys obviously don't have the financial resources to pull off anything realistic, and even though I don't like McCleery as an actor, I enjoyed the segment that he directed for this one.

Other than that, there's not much point to this movie. It's just some weird shot-on-video, amalgamation of other sci-fi movies and tv shows that really doesn't add up to much. The movie just ends, leaving you feeling like what you just watched was incomplete, but I'm sure that's what was intended, since a couple sequels soon followed. Joy!
