In the Aegis VII colony, where the Red Marker was found, there are some suicides and murders and the people are slowly going mad. The people are being infected by something.

Goofs

It is clearly seen about 18 minutes into the movie that Jen slices her throat; a large gash is shown with blood spilling out. A few moments afterwards, Barrow is seen rushing down the hallways with Jean's body in his arms. It is shown that Jen's throat has no blood - in fact, it's not even cut. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alissa Vincent: My name is Alissa Vincent. I may be the sole survivor. We've encountered an alien life form. They have taken over the bodies of the crew. The colony was lost. My team is dead. It is my belief that the artifact we discovered on the surface is somehow responsible. If you find this recording, the Ishimura and the artifact must be destroyed.

Not bad
25 October 2008 | by khr0nikSee all my reviews

Upon buying the game on release day, the guy behind the counter lovingly threw in a copy of the blu-ray for an extra £10.

I'll be honest, having read Luke-warm reviews on other sites, I wasn't particularly looking forward to watching the feature, but when taking a breather from the game (it gets to your nerves after a while...) I was pleasantly surprised at what the flick had to offer.

The script and voice acting are competent, and the story will definitely appeal to enthusiasts of the property. And whilst the animation isn't stellar, as a companion piece to the video game and animated comic, it serves its adequate purpose of adding another layer to this intriguing universe, a universe that I can only hope will develop into a successful franchise.

A hint to those who may be in my position though, finish the game before you watch this, there's a slight spoiler at the end of the movie.
