Storyline

Dean Koontz's best-selling novel is brought to TV in this 4 hour mini-series. After the death of his wife and daughter in a plane crash, a newspaper reporter discovers that the crash may have been related to a nefarious scientific experiment involving children. A woman, who claims she was a survivor of the crash, approaches at his wife's grave. This leads into a plot by the Quartermass organization to capture her and a young girl she is protecting - the girl has the powers to heal and to transport. A villainous killer and a young boy who can control minds from a distance lead the attack. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Trivia

When Joe (Billy Zane) is in an Internet cafe searching for the Quartermass Institute, he searches for 'Rose Tucker' on the Quartermass website and gets a standard 404 error page. It states that URL "256.174.212.17/" [obscured] could not be found. This IP address cannot possibly be valid, since IP sub-nets range between 0 and 255. See more »

Fantastic little series, worth watching.
1 January 2003 | by glennwalsh44See all my reviews

Caught this on the UK Sci-Fi channel over two nights and I really enjoyed it. Billy Zane is excellent and playing a more mature and vulnerable character than usual, a very convincing family man. The little girl '21-21' really reminded me of my own daughter so I had a lump in my throat at the end (if you aren't a 'daddy' you won't understand!). The Yates character was certainly over-the-top, but still (just) believable, as he got more and more frustrated in the chase and let's face it, he got all the best lines. I love science-fantasy material rather than horror, and although I haven't read the book, I will be keeping an eye out for it. A first-rate TV mini-series.
