The wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Two crew members are stranded on a spacecraft and quickly - and horrifically - realize they are not alone. Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It's pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can't remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's shocking, deadly secrets are revealed...and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.Written by
Travis Milloy wrote a preliminary script which was set on a prison ship. The characters Nadia and Manh were inmates. Bower was a non-prisoner, who didn't trust anyone. The producers gave the script to director Christian Alvart, who was shocked by the similarities to his own screenplay titled 'No Where.' His dramatic story was about 4 astronauts aboard a 'settlers' ship,' who suffer from amnesia. Alvart decided they should weld the 2 screenplays together, and the producers and Milloy agreed.

When Payton traps the insane officer 'Eden' inside the sleep capsule Eden's arms are by his side in the shots from the outside. When we see the capsule from the inside Eden's arms are up against the glass. See more »

The initial end credits intersperse with interiors of the Elysium. As well as some slight video static with the scrolling credits. See more »
Nice mix of adventure, surprises and psychological fun
I thought this movie did an excellent job of tapping into a number of deep-rooted fears that seem to be universal - claustrophobia, loneliness, loss of memory, large semi-dark areas with things that go bump, not to mention suddenly waking up and not knowing what the heck is going on all around you.
It had some nice "seat jump" scenes, and had moments where it was surprising funny.
And lots of nice twists too - don't see that enough in movies in general any more!
I can't comment too much on the "technical" aspects of the film, sorry, I'm just more of "was it a good, believable story" person. This was.
