Trivia

Dr. Murnau, the scientist who seals up himself and his team in BioTek's cafeteria, was never credited in the film, so nobody knows which actor played the role. It is possible that his actor didn't want to be recognized for working in the film, or that the cast information on him was left out by mistake and then lost. See more »

Goofs

Sci-Fi meet science factoids
20 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Historically, many may not remember but this film was released at the time of Chernobyl nuclear accident in Russia. Life does not imitate art here but plays a close second. Although, the ending is not fully satisfying, the first reviewer Jack Sommersby fails to see some superb talents behind the camera. Visually, the lab sequences are very terrifying and well acted. Worth a second look.
