Nick, Deborah and a scientist named
Marian (Robin Curtis) must go to the
secret base where these creatures are
breeding and wiping them out before these
things take over the world.
We spot nice camera shots
on a teenage
couple making out on their boat in an
ocean with a good shot looking up on them
with a space shuttle ready to fall into
the ocean near them as this looked very
suspenseful and creepy.
We spot many good shots on people rising out of the
ocean and onto a dock attacking the
soldiers with Cutter getting demanding and
leading his them.
We spot many great shots on a car chase
with cars exploding and tumbling over as
well as a good close up shot on Lasker showing a sneering expression on his
face while driving a police car.
There's a good shot on Lasker tied down with metal object in a room
acting like he's having a seisure with
good effects on his flesh doing different
things along with a nice energetic
moment on his breaking free and then
knocking everyone over in a hospital
hallway. We show many good shots on him being shot and trying to still stand
while doing so.
There's a nice moment with a
homeless person underneath a bridge and
spotting an object opening up and glowing
with a good shocked expression on his
There's a good gathering around with Zimmerman, Jackson and Joseph discussing what is happening to them and
then showing good expressions on them
changing and then acting like aliens.
There's great close up shots on Deborah firing her big gun.
We spot a good distant shot on Zimmerman trying to run away shooting while the
supporting cast as soldiers are shooting
after him as well as good blocking up him
climbing up some stairs and an explosion
happens on the top steps.
We spot a good shot on Marian examining a corpse with great shots on
the body opening up revealing the insides
and then something leaping out in an
Alien type of fashion but yet it doesn't
make you jump like it's supposed to.
There's a good tense discussion between Deborah acting possessed with an alien
inside her speaking to Nicholas at
a diner with a nice approach by a
waitress acting sarcastic about her
having a hangover after spotting her eyes
which offers some chuckles on how it was
done plus a good nasty attitude with Deborah towards her.
There's a nice dialogue moment with Deborah, Nicholas and Marian in a
hotel room discussing their plan.
We spot many good stunt shots on Nicholas grabbing onto a broken object while a
truck is driving and trying to get back
up while it's racing on the road with
good shots on Fox driving and acting anxious.
There's nice shots on Nicholas, Deborah, Marian and Fox at
a field base with their weapons trying to
hunt for the aline eggs as well as a good
dark shot on both Deborah and Marian discussing about the alien breed.
We spot a good close up shot on Nicholas emotionally talking to Deborah about what had happened when he was in
space and about this dark breed of aliens
with tears and sweat pouring down his
face making this moment look extremely
We have some great moments with Jackson firing his gun against many of the
supporting characters and a great shot on one
of them breaking down in flames.
We have a nice shot on Joseph lying on a floor like he's about to
transform into one of the creatures with
great intense facial expressions.
There's good shot on the sodiers walking around trying to hunt down aliens
with nice shots on them hiding behind
objects. There's also good shots on these
creatures jumping behind cast members
like Fox and breathing over
them which looked very deadly.
There's another great shot Nicholas entering in a room with an alien behind
him drooling and a good close up shot on
him slowly turning his head and then many
nice shots on him doing battles with this
Bottom line is that this film seemed
to clone both Terminator
and Aliens with a touch
of Predator too and
tried to bring it all together. I kinda
found this a tribute to those
sci-fi/horror flicks which I think is a
compliment showing great stunts and
explosive effects too. It was cheesy at
times but not low budget cheesiness. It
was a bit of a surprise that this went
right to video since the material looked
very theatrical. Again, direct-to-video
for horror films do alot better.
I've seen better films but what makes
this flick a notch above average was all
the action fighting and car chasings
packing a good punch. The story however,
is a bit slow and then it really grows
towards close to the end of the flick
with these creatures revealing
themselves. The creatures looked a cross
between the creatres from Aliens and
the warriors from Predator.
During the same time the figures looked a
This film is for you if you're in the
mood for a notch above average horror
with plenty of battling action too.
Otherwise you may want to put this on
The acting is not
too bad but not award winning either.
Lead actor Jack Scalia (Nicholas
'Nick' Saxon) seemed to
deliver his lines in a good fashion as
well as showing a good seriousness to his
part on what he was doing showing the odd
energetic moment with his struggling
Lance LeGault (Cutter) however really overdid
his part as the head sergeant and seemed
a little too corny with his speaking and
ordering others around. He was more
famous for his roles in The
A-Team and Magnum P.I. Sorry
folks he just wasn't convincing at all as
he tried way too hard and seems to have
just known his lines without focusing too
much on how to deliver them.
Donna W. Scott (Deborah) on the other hand
really brought everything she had into
her role while being possessed by an
alien and showing a dark attitude and
then when she was herself had a niceness
to her role. She displayed a good
versatality to all of this. She stood out
with her action fighting and everything
else that she had to do for this film.
Jonathan Banks (Joseph Shay) really knew how to
act possessed as well being the leader of
the bunch showing a coldlike and creepy
behavior. Sometimes however it was
performed cheesily but again I dug it.
Carlos Carrasco (Fox) showed some humor to
his part helping out fighting against
these aliens and was a true character
actor. Anyone who watched this film I'm
sure he will be remembered showing
perfect energy to his part in it like
most of the main characters mentioned so
far. He had the right looks too.
George Buck Flower (Homeless Man) had only a brief
role in this one but has mostly had these
types of roles in other flicks too but I
had to mention him. He really seemed
different with his appearance as a
homeless man and made his performance
worthy for the viewers and was a key
member to the story too.

The music was terrifically
composed by Louis Febre with
great adventureous classical music
hearing the trombone and violin scores
along with many great high pitched
screeching music too as well as the
thumps which were necessary for this type
of a film.
