A grief stricken captain embarks on his final mission in command of an ageing cargo ship. The ship's small crew, frustrated and discontented with their lives in deep space, try to complete a successful mission but the ship has ideas of its own. Soon, an 'accident' onboard forces a diversion to Somnus, a derelict asteroid station in a forgotten sector of the solar system. They soon discover the colony is populated by a mysterious and sinister cult, hell-bent on dark plans for Earth. The crew's hope of sanctuary on Somnus soon turns to peril, as they fight for their own survival against the colonists, and humanity's ultimate fate. Terrifying truths about the end of life on Earth soon force the captain to face up to his personal torment leading to a climatic and exciting conclusion.

User Reviews

Don't go by the box art - this is not Interstellar!
10 February 2017 | by tommakesmusicSee all my reviews

I bought this film on DVD and feel that the independent film on the disc was badly served by the artwork on the box.

It isn't a blockbuster, and, really, it doesn't try to be. This is an old fashioned sci-fi film that tries to play for tension and atmosphere rather than thrills and explosions.

In reality, I'm not sure it always achieves this, but it is a good, honest, attempt at it!

There are some notable performances - especially Mac McDonald, who is as good as you would expect, and there is an inspired choice of location for the ship-board shots, but, ultimately, I think it fails to make the most of the "story" and there is an uncomfortable shift of gears from ship location to the other location.

Watch this as an independent, low-budget sci-fi made in an old-fashioned style, and you won't be far away from the director's intentions. Believe the box art and posters and you'll be disappointed.
