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 »
Characters are moving around in the ceiling over the airport lobby without any concern that the suspended panels will not support much more weight than a cat. Bruce Campbell does put his foot through one tile once. See more »
You don't have to worry about who I've killed before. Just worry about who I'm going to kill next.

As far as I'm concerned Bruce Campbell is bad, in a good way. This certainly is no worse than his older Evil Dead movies in my book. Sure it could have had a good premise for the alien invasion and better lines for them. That aside there is some decent acting, special effects, and the story isn't bad. All in all I would buy it if it was available on DVD. Quite honestly I think they should have either had one very bad alien or an ordinary man as a murderer that was among them while they were stranded. Of course Bruce would get the blame as the convict, but he would be innocent. Maybe in the sequel. Still I found it entertaining enough to keep me awake watching it late the other night.
