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.

Luke Harrison: What?
Archer: Havest them, drag their remains off to...
Luke Harrison: Eat them right?
Archer: Bury them... it was a carrion eater... it ate the dead. So a hundred of their soldiers sacraficed their lives, so that the smell of rotting meat would bring it out. Then they trapped it inthis capsule and set it off into space. Over time rocks attached itself to this device. This whole thing has been one giant solitary floating Alcatraz.

I can't judge this film using normal reviewing techniques, because it's not a big budget, Armageddon type film that will comepletely blow you away. What it is is a mildley entertaining, fun-for-anyone-after-a-completely-undemanding-film-sort-of movie. Given millions of dollars and time, this would have been a spectacular, if completely un-original, dim-bulb film. But it's not. It was probably filmed over a month or less, for about a million dollars. For that, it's pretty damn good! It had a good script, with only one scene of bad dialogue towards the end (just think the worst, oldest cliche). Just goes to show that all you need is one talented person to start a film (I mean this films Writer/Director, who obviously knew what he was doing) and you'll end up with something respectable. 6/10 or ***/*****
