Storyline

On a direct collision course with Earth, a large moon rapidly approaches from the outer regions of the solar system and Dr. Dana Shaw is sent along with a specialized mining crew to try to alter its course. Once upon the moon Shaw is faced not only with a brutal time schedule and a greedy, opportunistic crew captain, but with the release of a seemingly indestructible carnivorus alien, imprisoned within the moon eons ago by a race it had been slowly decimating.

An better, underrated, well-made 90's Sci-Fi B-Movie
1 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm one of those people that actually enjoy B-movies. Well, B-movies that aren't stupid. Anyways, I watched "Within the Rock" with very low expectations. My expectations were exceeded. Let's face it: 90'S Horror and Sci-Fi movies were mostly crap. However, this film manages to pull off being crappy with a good story, average acting, average effects, and a pretty cool monster. This film has cool fights, suspenseful jumps, and an interesting look at space-mining.For the little amount of money that was used for this film, it was used well. I recommend "Within the Rock" for anyone who will settle for an average, entertaining Sci-Fi flick.
