In the reference book at the beginning, the Umal Dwayce entry appears on the right-side page between where the book clearly says only Untouchables through Upjohn are covered. Umal would clearly be before this section. Even the previous (left-side) page started at University Park, so the Umal entry is definitely on the wrong page. See more »
Thomas 'Jack' Jackman:
You know, when I was a young boy... my mother told me that the sun was driven around the world in a chariot drawn by four horses and a wizard sprinkled the stars on the roof of the sky.
My mom told me the sun is one of a hundred billion in the galaxy, which is one of a hundred billion in the universe and that some starlight has traveled since before dinosaurs were on the earth... and in it's journey right here, right now. That's not a mystery, that's a fact.

There's really not many directions you can go with this type of movie. Anybody whose seen the pathetic attempts to reboot The Exorcist (i.e. Exorcist: The Beginning) has seen this premise. I'm not really sure it was a great idea to begin with, and beating it to death isn't helping. Still, this movie's got some going for it. Most of the horror is based on jumpy, sudden moves of creepy imagery. Yes, that's a bit cheap but that doesn't make it less effective. The actors do fine. Not outstanding, but they get the job done.
The story is pretty basic. Security officer Brit McStudly and scientist Dr. Hotpants (ok, not their real names but they were clearly chosen for their looks rather than talent) get stuck in the middle of nowhere in a research/drilling station where things have apparently gotten very real. So the two of them hang out there and one of them may or may not be under assault by demons. There's some vague connections to religious angles and a good deal of psychological tension. Again, decent...but not great.
Would I recommend it? Sure, if you've got nothing better to do. It's not stellar but it's far from the worst thing you've ever seen (then again this is IMDb so I'm sure at least one person will claim it is...and that person will be an idiot).
