Actress Jillian McWhirter, who plays Sherry, said in interview how the scene where she gets raped by giant alien monster was shot but then due to some problems it had to be re-shot two different times. This is why the scene is so short in the movie. Originally the scene was meant to be longer, the alien monster was gonna try and calm Sherry down by fondling her nude body with its tentacles while holding her (just like other aliens did in earlier scenes), and part where it rapes her was also gonna be longer and more graphic. Three still photos showing McWhirter filming the original version of the scene in different location than it happens in the movie and while covered with slime on top of giant alien monster puppet that was used in the scene did appear in Femme Fatales article about her.

It would be so easy to dismiss an alien abduction movie before even seeing it - as I did - but this is well worth a look. If you think about it, its not an easy subject matter to handle but this film manages to suspend disbelief which in itself is a feat for such a way out subject. Casting the main character as a doctor was a sensible move which lends credence to his willingness to believe in the possibility of alien abduction. Vosloo plays it very sensitively involving us in his pain and confusion at the weird events that befall himself and his wife. Special Effects are used sparingly but to shocking effect and at times the movie is totally gripping but sadly there are a couple of points where the plot wanders and leaves some confusion. Also, after building to a tense climax the ending is something of a let down. The supporting characters were unnecessarily weak (the alien hunter) or menacing (the psychiatrist) which also served to detract.
But all in all it raised some interesting issues amongst which was a telling line "How do think animals feel when we experiment on them".
The concept of "lost time" was also thought provoking.
