On a stormy night, while transporting a criminal named Jack to death row, the officers have a car accident near a private airport. They bring the prisoner to the airport where clients are arguing with the owner/pilot of the charter services, Cathy Garrett because she refuses to take off with the bad weather and the communications are down due to the snow storm. Jack asks to go to the toilet being escorted by the guards; however, in the bathroom, a preacher attacks and kills the guards and when Jack kills him, his body vanishes. Jack returns to the lobby and when the security guard holds him, he accidentally shoots a passenger, but the woman does not die until Jack shoots her in the head and her body also disappears. The survivors conclude that they are trapped in a place filled with aliens and nobody can be trusted.Written by

Without any marketing, the film unexpectedly became the third highest rated original movie on the Sci-Fi Channel at the time of its release. This lead to the network negotiating with star Bruce Campbell to produce and direct his own film, Man with the Screaming Brain (2005), which had been in production hell for twenty years. See more »
Jack tells the remaining alien "The body count is five to five," when in reality the humans at that point have lost six. See more »
You don't have to worry about who I've killed before. Just worry about who I'm going to kill next.

This movie was a Sci-Fi channel exclusive with an apparent low budget and very untalented writers.
To sum up the plot, two police officers are transporting a murder (Bruce "Evil Dead" Campbell) through a snow storm when they lose control of their car and crash. Taking refuge from the snow they hole up in a nearly abandoned charter airport terminal with a group of others who have been stranded by the snow as well. After a laughable first contact with an apparent alien, it becomes clear that Campbell and the survivors (the charter pilot, a bickering married couple, an Army enlisted man, a janitor, a jumpy business man, and a painfully stereotypical token black guy) must learn to trust each other in order to figure out who is human and who is not.
The acting (with the obvious exception of Bruce Campbell) was horrible, the dialog was lame, the special effects were some of the cheapest I've ever seen, and the constant use of blur effects to make it look stylish and cool only make it look like the director of photography was drunk during filming.
Bruce Campbell gave a performance worthy of his own reputation with his trademark smirk and one-liners like "Don't worry about who I've killed in the past, worry about who I'll kill in the future" and "I took the fancy boy's pants and they were stuffed with cash!". Loyal Campbell fans will not be disappointed.
However the weak plot, bad effects and writing full of incredibly stupid mistakes (why doesn't the Sgt in the Army have a nameplate on his uniform?) all come together to add up to an overall pitiful excuse for a movie.
But when turning to the Sci-Fi channel for your primary source of entertainment on a Saturday night, you can't be picky.
For dedicated Bruce Campbell fans and people who enjoy watching really lousy movies, this is fun to watch. For anyone who doesn't like Bruce Campbell (all 2 of you out there) don't bother with this.
