Powerful Science Fiction
24 August 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Visionary director Eric Weston, working from his own script, brings this powerful story of human survival to the screen with stunning style and haunting imagery. The cinematography is incredibly striking and the special effects absolutely breath taking. A fine cast is aided immensely by the wonderful Meshach Taylor in the role of Crazy Briggs. It is a magnificent performance by Taylor and a suiting epitaph to a truly great actor as this would be his last film. The suspense builds to the point that it all becomes almost more than one can bear, with one intense scene following another. Unrelenting horror and overwhelming terror makes for one of the more rewarding cinematic experiences in some time.
