However, Annie sooner discovers that an ancient alien creature sent to annihilate life on Earth hundreds of years ago was released by the Indian Kale during an archaeological excavation in the desert. The Indian Caya and a group of travelers stranded in the spot without gas together with Annie and Kale try to find a means to destroy the alien and save mankind.Written by

This film is absolute rubbish. I don't know what "training" this filmmaker had but it couldn't have been much. The camera work was so bad that 75% of the time I had no bloody idea what was going on. The lead actress - who plays an angsty drunken sheriff - looks like the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls and mistakes scowly for sullen. I'm sure they cast her simply on her looks. The plot is abysmal. An archaeologist awakens some ancient creature that starts killing. Boy, that's original. "Relic" anyone? But this is just dire. The creature is so obviously CGI, and there is no purpose for most of what it does. At some point you might think it would get tired of eating. Ha ha. What told me that the film was beyond repair was when one guy gets shot and in the next scene is running around. Russell Means is in this stinker. Why, Russell, why? Avoid this film or at least bring a pillow to the cinema. It will put you to sleep.
