A group of humans arrive on Sirius 6-B to investigate an SOS signal sent out from the planet, which has been supposedly deserted since the destruction of the man-made weapons known as "screamers." Once the squad arrives, they find a group of human survivors eking out an existence in an old military outpost, but more important, they discover that the threat of the screamers has become even more insidious, now that they're able to morph into human form.

1 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off let me say I wanted to like this movie. But it went out of it's way to change my mind. Gina Holden was terrible. She played a soldier, but she looked like a 12 year old in military clothing. The terrible writing was a nice compliment to the terrible acting and casting. How movies like this get funding baffles me. Avoid this movie unless you really have nothing in the world better to do than waste 2 and a half hours of your precious life. If you do watch it laugh with me at the fact that the screamers wont attack you if your wearing a glowing bathroom symbol. Also if all you had to do to stay alive was to wear this symbol you'd probably not lose it right. The first one had very little to work with especially since it was released after the classic terminator series. But the first film tried harder, and was watchable. There were many times were the interaction between the characters, usually involving Gina Holden's character, make you want to look away and cringe she was so bad. In summary this film didn't deserve a 1 but its as low as you can go .
