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.
Cody Harrison: Yeah... well now it's time to give it the chair!

Another Alien copy !
24 March 1999 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This crew-versus-monsta has been done a hundred times, sometimes better. This one was pretty slow-moving ; only the monster's resurrection was really worthwhile. Attempts at character developments gets botched by routine. Yeah, "routine" is the word. Went straight to video in France. No wonder
