Storyline

A group of humans arrive on Sirius 6-B to investigate an SOS signal sent out from the planet, which has been supposedly deserted since the destruction of the man-made weapons known as "screamers." Once the squad arrives, they find a group of human survivors eking out an existence in an old military outpost, but more important, they discover that the threat of the screamers has become even more insidious, now that they're able to morph into human form.

Dull characters
7 November 2017 | by hellholehorrorSee all my reviews

The effects are infinitely better than the first movie but somehow the charm is gone. It looked good but wasn't the most exciting to look at. The sound was great - good use of directionality and very crisp and clear. The characters were so dull and unimaginative. This reminded me of The Thing (1982) but it was nowhere near as good. Still it never got boring and the screamers were pretty bad-ass. Not the most enjoyable but not bad either. The characters were too dull.
