A fleet of UFOs is circling the Earth and a top scientist races to discover their true intentions for the planet. When the UFOs begin an attack on Earth, the scientist finds himself thrown in with a sheriff and his deputies transporting some prisoners to jail. The unlikely group is forced to seek shelter from the attack in a nearby cave, not knowing how significant the location is to the alien's plans. Written by DJ Heinlein

1 & a half hours of hell...
14 August 2000 | by (Preston, England) – See all my reviews

Well what a load of rubbish this film was, a plot written by a 12 year old, wooden acting, a 'rubber' alien, in general a bad rip off of the classic space monster movie 'Alien'.
