Two campers in the New Jersey woods have their outdoor fun interrupted by the arrival of a meteorite crashing nearby. They go to investigate the crater, but are suddenly attacked and devoured by alien parasites who have hitched a ride to Earth. After finishing off the campers, the hungry space monsters head for a nearby town, where they make their domain in the basement of an old house soon begin polishing off one hapless inhabitant after another. Four young teenagers, plus one pre-teen boy, try to find a way to stop the angry space monsters before they reproduce and literally eat humanity.Written by

The effects of the mini-spawns slithering across the floor in the basement was achieved by cutting a "S" wriggle into the floor, and pulling the spawns along under the floor. See more »

Hello? Oh, hi Frankie. Oh yeah... I woke up because the phone was so loud. Oh, that was my aunt. Yeah, my aunt and uncle are visiting. What?
What are you getting so worried about? Look, look... biology isn't exactly my strongest point either.
What about tonight? We can still go. No, I told you... I said my folks have the car today. Not tonight. What about your car?

The Synapse DVD release includes a cut of the film that is slightly extended. Near the film's conclusion, we see a number of 'reaction' shots of the surviving characters being taken away in ambulances and police cars, including a very shell-shocked Charles. An alternate opening sequence is included as an extra and not as part of the complete film, but it's nearly identical to the original version, with a few minor changes to the special effects, sound effects, and the opening titles.

Extremely low budget, but lively sci-fi horror movie about a group of people trapped in a house full of toothy extraterrestrial monsters, hatched from a fallen meteorite, which look like a cross between a giant salamander and H.R. Giger's creation from the ALIEN movies.
The shoestring budget actually adds to the movie's charm, as it appears to have been written, shot and designed by a bunch of talented kids who had nothing better to do with the weekend (which is actually not far from the truth).
The dialog and performances, in general, are fair at best, but the swift pace, campy atmosphere and enthusiastic carnage balance out the shortcomings. Great music score, too. At any rate, you get the feeling that the filmmakers have a true love of the horror genre. It's creepy, gory, and a lot of fun, and would be a perfect flick for a Halloween horror-thon.
