Kate is dying. She wants reassurance that there is life elsewhere in the Universe. She and Andy go to the one place that may hold the answers to her questions. Alien lights have been seen. Alien ships have been sighted. If she could only come into contact with these foreign forces! The bizarre people who inhabit the area also play a role in Kate and Andy's quest. The one place that may hold the answer is...GROOM LAKE! Written by
Bill Shatner rode horseback on the U.S./Mexico border with a Border Patrol Agent (who appears in the movie in two different roles) during the filming of the movie in Bisbee, Arizona. Shatner talked about that experience in an interview on both the Conan O'Brien Show in 2001 and later in his autobiography "Up Till Now" (published by Thomas Dunne Books) in 2008. See more »
It is sad to see a potentially nice subject (dying girl tries to find alien life before she dies) wasted like this. The characters are wooden, there is hardly any logic in their actions. But there is a lot more in this film to complain about. The special effects could be charming as they are disarmingly clumsy and unconvincing, but they fail to be. The lighting and editing reminds one of the bold and the beautiful. The acting is terrible. No memorable one-liners whatsoever. In short, there are no redeeming qualities. William Shatner even succeeded in miscasting himself. Only a tiny amount of irony or self-parody would have made the film at least bearable, but unfortunately it all seems to be meant seriously. Avoid.
