Trivia

Repurposed from Moore's take on "The Thing" which was planned as a 6 to 8 hour mini-series on SyFy with participation from Frank Darabont at one point. See more »

Goofs

The series depicts day as bright and night as dark in the Arctic. However, north of the Arctic circle (which is the implied location), because of the tilt of the earth, they would have 24 hours of daylight in the summer, and 24 hours of dark in the winter. See more »

User Reviews

Typical "SyFy" channel schlock.
11 January 2014 | by temporaldisturbanceSee all my reviews

I was hoping for something like "Burning Zone" - intense show about a team of brave scientists containing deadly diseases. A show with tense and creepy atmosphere and genuinely frightening moments.

Instead, I got this.

The yellow-blue filter only accentuates the show's low-budget look. Characters spout out generic lines, and every scene unfolds right on cue of a predictable beat. There are no surprises, no scares, no suspense, no sense of involvement with the cardboard characters.

SyFy channel has succeeded at accomplishing the most difficult task of taking a show about infectious diseases and people in Hazmat suits and making it into a banal snore-fest.

Of course, if anyone could do it, it's SyFy.
