Storyline

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.

not quite what it seems
18 January 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

This review is using the "oeuvre" approach in which the history of the work matters.

Essentially this is an indirect homage to the original. I say indirect because the reflex in the Canadian industry to do knockoffs of any script with a pulse is so ingrained you could argue that the homage was accidental in the process of doing another knockoff.

Still with me? Now SCREAMERS I is right up there with Cube and RobocopI as representing the cream of the Canuck film machine. Early on the Canadians while busy producing cheap knockoffs of US content accidentally discovered that occasionally they do do something really special on a small budget.

Screamers I was one such accidental hit. It was not merely a good film but holds up well today and heck if you have not seen it lets stop jabbering so you can go find a copy.

This film, Screamers 2 (they say a S3 is in production but who knows?) repeats many of the same themes, with a little less enthusiasm and a lot smaller budget.

It is not a bad film. Especially if you miss S1 and need your screamers fix.

Otherwise stick with the original
