A man is taken to a small clinic in Guam with mysterious bites on him. This sparks a search for what could have caused such wounds. A group of men and women fly to the island he lived on to investigate the situation. Due to technical problems, their small plane crashes and they are stranded on the island.

Goofs

When Valentine (Chris Potter) tells Mercer "Just help me get these people out of here and I'll come back with you" around 51 minutes in, Mercer (Alex Reid) opens her mouth to reply but only the voice of the doctor (José Sancho), who had just walked into their perspective, can be heard, making it sound like Mercer is talking with a man's voice as no audio whatsoever is heard coming from her mouth.

Glossy B movie monster Sci-fi mash
31 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This turned up on the Horror Channel here in the UK. For over 50 years i have loved monster and Sci-fi movies,but had not heard of this, though made in 2001. No UK film release.It starts really well with a high speed plane loosing all its power due to aliens on an island below. Then the expedition to the island where there are giant mutations galore including Spiders and the cast get whitteld down one by one as is the case with glossy B movies involving somethings not human. It's quite fun as long as your not afraid of spiders etc but looses points from this critic for some of the worst film music i have ever heard over the many years. Some of the acting is a bit ropey but the gore makes up for that.Good fun on a sat night with some cool beers and a girl who grabs you when the monsters appear.
