Just the sort of spine-chilling film I want to see!
12 June 2002 | by (Wrexham, N Wales) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on one of the Sky Movie channels last night. I missed the beginning and just happened to flick to this channel as there was nothing else on.

So, I can't comment on whether the film is slow to start or not, because I started watching at around 20 minutes in. This is just the sort of film I like to watch. Made to be as real as possible (it's obviously fake, BTW, not in the sense that it LOOKS fake, but had it been real, would it really be aired on national television? I don't think so! Oh, and it's got the actors names at the end of the film!). Darkened hallways, realistic portrayal of absolute terror by the cast, SOME decent special effects, etc... Great stuff.

However, it does start to ruin the film when the aliens make their full appearance (as I said, I missed the beginning of the film, so I don't know how much you see of the first encounter). They look fake, although I like the way the camera goes all fuzzy when they are nearby - in a way, it tries to mask the Dr. Who costumes. I've always said, these things work best when you never fully see what is scaring the cast - just the glimpse from the corner of the eye, or as it disappears out of sight or something.

All in all, I'd give this film 9/10. I liked the BWP film (first viewing only). This one was longer, and was generally more chilling than BWP. One problem - I didn't really seem to care whether the cast survived or not. And the kid was just plain annoying.
