Storyline

The space shuttle Churchill is assigned to observe the Halley's Comet under the command of Col. Tom Carlsen. They see a strange form attached to the comet and Carlsen goes with a team to investigate. They find three humanoid life forms in caskets and they bring them to the Churchill. However, Earth loses contact with the shuttle and the Space Research Center sends another spacecraft to search the Churchill. They find the crew dead and the shuttle burnt and one rescue pod missing. They bring the humanoids to Earth and soon Dr. Hans Fallada and his team discover that the Space Girl is a sort of vampire and drains the life force from people transforming them into zombies. When the authorities find that Col. Tom Carlsen has survived, they summon him to explain what happened in the Churchill. Carlsen tells an incredible story about the three aliens and he teams up with Col. Colin Caine trying to save mankind from the evil vampires from the space. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Boobs, Vampires, Zombies, Commandos, and CPTN PICARD
9 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is the classic Zombie film it has, the one true element of it. That's to have you sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for them to find out how to kill it. So the movie starts off with them finding this perfect c-cup thick-tailed female vampire in a suspended state (she remains naked for throughout the movie. Then the mystery begins the ships is destroyed. The bodies are brought to earth and slowly you see the zombie uprising start as one turns two who then turn four then sixteen are turned to Zombies by the Vampire. Commandos our brought in to hunt her down. Thats a ruse just to get the heroes out of the city. When they return the city quarantined rage zombies are everywhere. And the two have to fight there way through the road-block nd then fight their way through the Zombie hordes to save the planet. It was awesome Slow-paced but awesome just the same.
