Storyline

It's 2 A.M. in St. Louis when a routine scientific experiment goes terribly wrong and an explosion shakes the city. A scientific team investigates, clashing with an intergalactic, voltage-devouring creature that vaporizes them. By 7 A.M. a chain of earthquakes is tearing the city apart while a massive swirling black hole is consuming the remains. The alien is devouring every source of electricity it finds and destroying every human who blocks its way. Mass chaos rules as St. Louis is being evacuated. Only a few people, scientist Eric Bryce, his assistant Shannon, and General Ryker comprehend the mortal danger. By midnight, the Pentagon initiates a nuclear attack against the black hole. Bryce has only one hour to find a solution to obliterate the alien and the colossal black hole before mankind is annihilated. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Did You Know?

Trivia

Soldiers Memorial is a World War I museum built during the Depression and so neglected that the elevators don't work. It is situated on Chestnut Street in downtown St. Louis, however, which is low-traffic yet double the width of other downtown streets, which means a movie company can show a rented helicopter landing in the middle of downtown without messing up local traffic too much.

Makes "Alien Cargo" look good
11 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the worst of the "shovelware" the Sci-Fi channel shows. The acting is awful, the plot is broken, the characters are contrived, and the end result screams "Mystery Science Theater." This is a true rotten tomato if one ever existed.

On the other hand, if you're a St. Louisan, you're bound to get some entertainment out of this movie, if for no other reason than to see the local landmarks. Of course, you'll be shocked to discover that the St. Louis Science Center is, in fact, a quantum laboratory and that Busch Stadium was apparently not demolished in the way the local news claimed!

The local appeal aside, this is an utterly awful movie that is only watchable if your friends like to make snide remarks during the pitiable conversations. If you like movies like "Reptillian" or "10.5: Apocalypse," watch this film. For the millions of others of you out there, run away. Far away.
