An elderly janitor hurt in an explosion at a secret army lab run by "The Shop" starts to grow younger. A ruthless operative is sent to cover it up, so the janitor and his wife go on the run with the help of a sympathetic female agent.
Carrie White is a lonely and painfully shy teenage girl with telekinetic powers who is slowly pushed to the edge of insanity by frequent bullying from both her classmates and her domineering, religious mother.
After all communication with a remote top secret U.S. military installation in Antarctica known as Ice Station Erebus is lost , Captain Sam Cage and Major Callie O'Grady are sent to investigate. What they find is Hell incarnate and unless they can somehow find a way to stop it, the world is doomed, literally.
Set design, script and casting were all thrown to the wind, as this film's already meager budget seems to be spent mostly on getting Faith Ford, the only talent to be found associated with it. An apparent remake of The Thing only becomes more pathetic when the filmmakers decided to completely avoid any similarities between the two with the exception of location. The complete lack of any sort of scientific advising, devolution to the most basic of storylines and motivations, can only leave one curious who let this one through any sort of filter system to reach its underwhelmed audience. This one makes a Troma movie look like a masterpiece.
