An alien microbe lands in remote Siberia in the 1950's. In the year 2004, US scientist working at a top secret underground lab in Alaska clone the microbe. A garbled distress signal is heard from the lab just before a complete lock down of the facility. This is the last word sent out from the scientists. A team of scientists and military personnel are in charge of finding out what went wrong. Written by
One interesting thing about this TVM is that it was filmed in 14 days . This is the only time the adjective " interesting " will be appearing in relation to DEEP EVIL . It also gives a hint as to what sort of quality you should expect from this type of film . Quickly written , quickly produced and quickly filmed the only thing that doesn't fly by quickly is the film itself . Two hours of your life you'll never get back ? It seems a lot longer than two hours sitting through this
As in these type of horror/sci-fi TVMs the intellectual and artistic parisonmy is matched by the budget . Once the military/scientific team are given their mission they spend a large proportion of the running time walking down a dark corridor waving torches . I don't know if it it was my imagination but this sequence seemed to last for 20 minutes and in order to impress the audience the characters spout such Oscar winning dialogue such as :
" Everyone thinks I'm a lesbo "
" No way was that officer's daughter jailbait . Shee was eighteen or nineteen at least "
If you're expecting a low/no budget remake of ALIENS you'll be disappointed because this is a very dialogue heavy type of story where not much happens What makes it more irritating is how exposition is given out to the plot . If you've read the plot summary on this page it tells you all you have to know as to how the story plays out
