Good story, well executed "B" film
27 September 2002 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

I rented this thinking it would be subpar at best and was pleasantly surprised. You can tell this was low budget...but not low-low. This could be called a "Teen Film" in some respects, but it's not "cheesy" as most teen films made these days. The special effects in the film work really well i think, very inventive in their approach. The plot is an interesting one and if you're a science or sci-fi freak you'll probably relate to it more. The acting for the most part is talented for a small film such as this. Basically, if you like low-budget movies that have plot twists and unique characters then you may just like this one. I liked it enough that I'll probably buy the DVD soon.
