Storyline

After a chance encounter at the ages of fifteen with a terrifying alien race, Wyatt, Cody, Duke and Otis are scarred by the death of their friend. Released from experimentation by the creatures, they go their separate ways. Fifteen years later, Cody, Duke and Otis have re-united; ardent in that revenge is the path to take. Wyatt, however, has ultimately decided to live with the past and has chosen a normal life with his wife Hope. Entwined to the fate of Duke, Cody and Otis when they manage to track down and capture a lone alien, Wyatt and Hope are now thrust into a new world of terror as the horrifying abilities of the creature become known. From hypnotizing Hope with a mere glance into her eyes to infecting Cody with a seemingly transmogrification-bound alien virus, the creature is out to wreak havoc upon its captors in any and all of its devious and insidious means. With no more than a few hours to decide between releasing the creature and forfeiting their lives, and killing the ... Written by Soccerkid_217

Not that bad....not that great....but not that bad.
13 December 2006 | by Leester37See all my reviews

I'm gonna give this a five. But only because I felt they had the right idea. It seemed like the filmmakers really wanted to do something new with the who Alien abduction angle, but it did feel a lot like retread waters. The obvious comparison to Dreamcatcher can be made...but this flick takes that in a different direction, it just falls flat.

I was very surprised by some of the actors, though. Mike Williams is the only actor I recognized (him being in Blair Witch), but the other 4 actors in the flick were pretty good. They did their best with what they had I guess.

Another thing this movie had going for it, I think, is that it had some really good creature effects for a movie that obviously didn't have a huge budget. And the gore is pretty decent as well. It's a shame the story couldn't keep up with the FX though.

I look forward to Eduardo Sanchez's future work, just to see where else he'll go from here.
