In the original unaltered script by Brendan Hood, the plot dealt with a group of four recent college grads who discover that Earth is actually run by a race of organic machines which allow the human race to exist so that they can kill them and harvest their corpses for 'spare parts' as "Their" bodies break down and deteriorate.

what is WRONG with you people????
3 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

okay people say that most teens like the "scream" type movies, you know, scary guy with a big bad knife, jump out of a closet, ditzy girls scream and run upstairs instead of outside, stab stab, blood blood gore gore. now the big bad psycho guy goes and kills more people, more blood, more gore, yee haa, whoopie. this does not go for me. im 17. i hate movies like that. they are so predictable! the main character never dies and ALWAYS catches the bad guy in the end. whoop-de-doo. now this movie scared the hell out of me. i saw it a few days ago, at night. not wise. havent been able to sleep with the lights off yet. everyones been complaining how this movie doesnt explain everything, like what THEY are, and why THEY mark people as kids but eat them as adults. now i have a question. why do you need answers? why must you have everything spelled out for you in black and white? dont you people have imaginations? would you be more scared if someone told you "there is a large slimy alien with big red eyes right behind you" or " there is some sort of strange lurking presense behind you"? personally, i think that if the movie leaves stuff to Imagination, (like what THEY actually look like, and so on) you use your Imagination to fill in the blanks. i think anything your imagination can come up with is a heck of a lot scarier then anything a movie can show you. and please stop dissing the lead actress! i thought she was a fine actress. and so maybe she didnt have the big-boobs-blond hair-ditzy thing going on. she looked Real. and the ending was a great ending. how often do you see the main character get it? NEVER!
