Trivia

The Seal team must have very sophisticated communications gear as they are able to triangulate on the captured scientist's location using only one radio in one location. Normally it takes three radios on three points of a triangle to triangulate. See more »

Goofs

The "HALO" parachute jump is described as a "high-altitude-low-open" where the ripcord is pulled as close to the ground as possible, but the stock footage shows the chutes opening as soon as they exit the aircraft. See more »

Incredible mission
13 January 2015 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Sydney Gerber (Camden Toy), a very mad old scientist, opens a wormhole somewhere in Afghanistan, so giant scorpions can come out and kill all of his team. Dr William Marx (Jack Plotnick), a slightly mad young scientist, is sent with a team of soldiers to find Gerber and close the wormhole. Lieutenant Raiger (Ted Jonas) is determined to finish this mission soonest, because he and Marx are in love with the same woman. However, fighting various monsters and human enemies becomes an almost impossible mission that drags on and on.

'The Vortex - Beasts From Beyond' is an incredible movie. If you didn't see it, you wouldn't believe people release something like this. There is a giant plastic hornet and 2 talking (!) snakes. Probably becoming aware of how ridiculous everything would look, the makers added a lot of comedy by the relationship of Marx and Raiger who hate each other from the first moment, but have to continue working together on this mission. A few dialogs of these two characters are the only enjoyable thing in an otherwise horrifying flick.
