Did You Know?


Around 70% of the film's scenes were shot at the Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bio-organic Chemistry in Moscow. It was built in 1959 and is a good example of brutalist Soviet architecture. See more »


When Tatyana is first arriving at the facility in Kazakhstan, the guards are watching the car convoy arrive through a window and press the button to open the gate. In the next scene, the gate opens and the convoy enters the facility. A dog is walking near the fence by the gate, but was not visible in the area in the previous scene from the guardhouse.

It has Been A Long Time Since A Good Alien Movie
16 November 2020 | by crowes-18865See all my reviews

This is a very well done sci-fi with a solid creature which isn't too over the top and is kept just simple enough to really work. Some of the only gems coming out of the horror and sci fi genres these days are the indie/foreign films and this one delivers a scary creature without getting so bogged down and convoluted as some of the more recent big budget films. It is subtitled but you can still appreciate that the actors/actresses were quite good. It was an unexpected surprise and I recommend it to anyone surging through the massive catalog of cookie cutter and ridiculous horror movies of late.
