Storyline

Photographer Steve Blake witnesses a horrific car crash, in which James Wilson, head of British Nuclear Power, is burned to a crisp. He is stunned the next day when he sees Wilson alive and well, the inquest reveals unanswered oddities, and the detective heading the investigation, John Ferguson, is eager to close the case. When he investigates similar victimless deaths, he learns that Wilson was one of 200 survivors, several years earlier, when coastal village, Sweet Hope, collapsed into the sea, the entire populace saved by 2 policemen (Ferguson and Chief Supt Gates) - and they all seem to have moved up in their various fields suspiciously quickly since. When Gates's wife suggests he could have been replaced by an alien after the tragedy, Blake ventures underwater, where he's horrified to find the skeletons of all of Sweet Hope's inhabitants ! So, who are the survivors...? Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Pretty good British sci-fi
16 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this when I first saw it in the late 1990s, and have just enjoyed it again on DVD. The conspiracy theory, involving not just an alien takeover (in itself not particularly inspired) but also the hint of danger inherent in a software monopoly involving worldwide adoption of one particular operating system has echoes in the present. Although the pace of the story may not suit those brought up on a diet of fast-moving action, there is just enough to keep you hooked. Some of the acting may also appear a little wooden, but the characters are sufficiently believable to carry it off. All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this movie as one to share with other enthusiasts of the genre.
