Watch Out What You Steal
9 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with a black-ops kind of group attacking a truck they believe to have "stingers" or weapons. After killing the drivers, they break into the truck. What they find is a cryogenic case of unknown origin. Even though they are warned to leave it alone (it is extremely dangerous) they feel that if they can break through it's casing, they will find some kind of weapon. Their leader, a loose cannon mercenary, takes over the operation and ignores everyone. He is determined to get his way. Eventually, the case is broken and out comes a species that has been captured and contained. Their method, to seek out anything projecting heat and freezing it. That includes the bodies of the mercenaries. They become statues of icy tissue and crumble. The story now rest on the survivors trying to figure a way out of the installation and to find a way to stop these things. It's a rocky road because the big-shot boss is having none of this. He feels a few well placed rounds will disable them. Of course, it's not that simple. By the way, the creatures are pretty sadly portrayed.
