Storyline

After an asteroid has collided with their spaceship, the five astronauts aboard suddenly have to decide who's to live and who's to die, since the crash has left their oxygen supply almost depleted. The initially cosy atmosphere soon turns grim and hostile, as a nerve-racking fight for survival ensues, no holds barred... Written by Swie Tio <sweet_t@dds.nl>

Trivia

As the blurb says, it is based on the Arthur C. Clarke short story "Breaking Strain". But that has only two (male) crew and is much more psychological. See more »

Goofs

MacNeil trips a boobytrap and finds the air being released from the compartment he's in. He escapes through a trapdoor into the next compartment down, where there is still air... which doesn't flow out through the trapdoor as it should. See more »

Alternate Versions

When released for video in 1995 in the UK, the BBFC cut 10 seconds to secure a 15 certificate. See more »

A nifty little sci-fi
14 March 2000 | by ProphetessSee all my reviews

A nifty little sci-fi that made me think "Lifeboat" meets "Alien." No monsters in this movie and just a little blood (no gore). Thought provoking as it makes you wonder who will survive and, moreover, makes you pull for certain characters to survive. Not for those who are looking for mind boggling special effects. A good story with a very satisfying ending.
