I thought this film had a lot of good things going on. While hampered by it's budget, and no-doubt brief shooting time, it has a really solid cast especially it's lead. Megan Lee Ethridge is really strong, and carries the dramatic weight of the movie amazingly well. I really liked a lot of the trippy visuals - those times when the director had a little elbow-room to get experimental. There were some great images & editing - good and truly disturbing stuff. The Kafka-esquire bureaucratic nightmare of the facility really came across and was one of the most effective elements, I thought. The underlying ideas of the script were also strong - a nice twist on traditional alien abduction themes. And, of course, the gruesome splatter was a grand hoot! Every good horror movie should cross the line at least once, and I thought the "sperm donor" scene was delightfully over-the-top fun! I really liked how the twist-ending & reveal played out, and I thought it elevated the piece as it wrapped it up.
While it showed some rough edges, and could have been edited tighter for it's pacing, I thought this was a good first effort and shows great promise for it's director.
