Storyline

An Alaskan oil rig crew in the middle of the Arctic Tundra hit something while drilling 10 miles beneath the Earth's surface. Instead of oil, a strange blue substance comes through the pipelines. Then when the drill is blown out mysteriously, the radar shows it was pushed out by a 7 foot tall object. One by one crew members are found gruesomely murdered and when they discover what they let loose, they end up fighting for more than their own lives. Written by Sam <halloweenh27@yahoo.com>

This film is an Alien clone even down to the opening credits. Well actually, it's a clone and combo of several sci-fi classics. Is had the plot of "Alien," the setting of "The Thing," and a creature that's a cross between the Predator and the Queen Alien from "Aliens." However, it does have a pretty interesting premise. Turn out that human were bred billions of years ago at the dawn of evolution as harvest for a race of aliens. But the alien crashed and was frozen in the Arctic, and he was perserved until the humans revived him in present day. No kidding. And now he want to finish the job he started: eat us!

The cast was good, and it completely ignored traits of the genre (i.e. the star-crossed lovers' fate, the African-American character's didn't die first, and the DOCTOR's fate! WOW). However, the ending is similar: the old "let's blow the monster up" idea is used.

It was pretty good, but it was an assault on original plot. Don't watch it unless you're feeling really goofy.
