Goofs

When Cal is examining the missile specs, the display shows the yield as 0.7 kJ (kiloJoules), the same amount of energy used by a 100W light bulb in seven seconds - scarcely terrifying as a missile. See more »

Character driven sci-fi with good performances
10 August 1999 | by (miami, florida) – See all my reviews

This film is like a Deep Calm in space.A family of research scientists find themselves trapped and terrorized by an escaped convict who they are trying to help. Good performances throughout, especially by Peter Outerbridge playing Nash, the escaped convict. Worth checking out.
