Did You Know?


There is an allusion to a previous film the lead actor Dennis Christopher starred in. During the movie he does an imitation of James Cagney in White Heat. Christopher appeared in the 1980 film Fade to Black where the main character Eric Binford does an impersonation of the role played by Cagney in White Heat. See more »


Parts of Skylab in real life, had actually fallen somewhere in Australia, but this is never addressed at any point in the film. See more »

Alternate Versions

Although uncut by the BBFC the UK video version featured a heavily edited print which removed all the shots of Michael discovering dead mutilated bodies and shortened the shot of the alien erupting through a man's face. See more »

Just tolerable
11 June 2002 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Derivative, dark, dull sci-fi thriller that can't breathe any life into its tired cliches, and moves ever-so-slowly to boot. However, there is a pretty cool head-explosion scene and a nicely understated ending. Not really the worst of its type, but not very good, either. (*1/2)
