Storyline

Be careful of what you touch. A large meteor is heading quickly toward Earth. A space defense launches a missile and seems to destroy the meteor. But a small piece of the meteor lands in a remote part of Europe. An up and coming American rock band is touring through Europe when their van breaks down... near the meteor. The area is eerily quiet and the band finds clues of people living in the area but no one is found. Gradually, they begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together but the meteor is having a deadly effect on them. Written by Anonymous

The Soiled State of Solid State
27 March 2013 | by Thrill_KillZSee all my reviews

I'm a big fan of this genre and I always dig films with this kind of set up, low budget included. This film listed at $300k, I have seen fantastic films done well within that figure. I went in with good expectations and was literally offended by the half way point. The synopsis alone is misleading a little because I did not get at all what I expected. It's about an aging rock band trying to get back together although their back story is meaningless, it has nothing to do with the film. Yes a meteor crashes after an attempt to blow it up does work leaving what appeared to be a small chunk of it hitting the Earth at an unknown area. All this seems to be done out of frame, as is most of the action. What we end up with is a bunch of horribly unlikable characters wandering the streets wondering what has happened. The acting is horrendous the cinematography is poor, the CGI is just pathetic. The plot, if you can call it that, has so many unexplained inconsistencies, that when they do try to explain the what & the why it only becomes more of an eye rolling mess. Picture a SyFy channel film only much much worse. Believe me I would much rather spend time reviewing something great that I enjoyed, but after such an assault on my eyes it's seems only fair to return the favor. If this was a spoof film straight up it may have worked out fine, but the attempt at seriousness pulled this sucker down to a 1/10 rounded up. Solid State=Solid Waste
