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.

Standard mish-mash SciFi sequel
7 February 2009 | by jens-larssonSee all my reviews

This is a great example of what not to do with a potential great SciFi franchise. I absolutely loved the original movie, one of my all time favorite SciFi flicks, and i knew that this movie couldn't get close to the feeling in the first one. So in my mind i was already prepared for a semi bad SciFi, witch is OK with me, because thats still a SciFi. But even though i was set for a bad one, i got disappointed.

Everything about this movie was bad. The actors where bad, except for Lance Henriksen. The ships interior where "home made" (comon people, where is the dirt?!). The landscape, locations, sets, wardrobe and technology don't match the original movie. This all feels like it's on another planet, and if they had gone in that direction with the story it could have worked, but they didn't.

But i will give the makeup department some credits, because some of the monster effects looks really good. Thats why i gave it a two instead of one.

Don't waste your time on this one.
