The Lunar Base Ark is hit by a meteor shower and has severe damage. Colonel Gerard Brauchman sends Ava Cameron to repair a wing that is full of carbon monoxide. Dr. Lance Krauss warns that the gas may cause paranoia and hallucinations. Ava brings a sample of the meteor for analysis and Dr. Krauss finds that there are spores attached to the meteor. Ava accidentally cuts her finger in a sample but she hides the cut from the doctor. Soon Ava gets pregnant and delivers an alien offspring. Brauchman and Kraus believe that Ava is delusional. The offspring bites the crewman Bruce Johns and produces a clone of him. Written by

In the beginning of the movie, at 02:24, Christian Slater's character activates some kind of 'communicator' and speaks into it. This is actually nothing more than a simple LED reading light. See more »
The very first lines are from a computer alerting of an incoming storm. This is impossible: the Moon does not have an atmosphere for storms (or any other weather phenomenon, in fact) to occur, and the resulting meteor shower does not count as one. See more »
I know, that's not exactly the most exciting beginning when reviewing a film, but that honestly just about sums it up.
It's not that it's really horrible or anything; the acting is all right and they are definitely trying their best. And, it IS nice to see Christian Slater in SOMETHING! Man, I sure miss that guy. I was watching 'THE NAME OF THE ROSE' the other day and he was SO frigg'n excellent in it. I REALLY miss seeing him in more quality films...
Anyway, the outside shots of the moon base and equipment are nice; the film is clearly VERY low budget, but they create a moderately decent suspenseful atmosphere. There just isn't a heck of a lot to the story, really; basically a monster on the loose kind of thing.
So, I can't get wildly excited about the movie, but if you are in the mood for a simple, low-budget Moon Monster Movie and if you like Christian Slater, you might really enjoy it...
