Action, Horror, Science fiction
This is a derivative horror/sci-fi space yarn that steals from Alien, Event Horizon and even The Descent. Still, those are good films to steal from, and performers like Dennis Quaid and a remarkably reserved Ben Foster keep things interesting. They play members of a space crew who awaken from a long hyper-sleep, unaware of where they are or what they are doing. As their memories slowly come back, they make some nasty discoveries while fighting off strange, cannibalistic aliens. There are some good scares, and I found the mystery effective. The film kept my attention throughout its nearly two-hour running time, and I liked how things played out. Quaid is very good as the commanding officer trying to unravel the mystery of his spaceflight, and the makeup guys did a nice job with the monsters. This is much better than what I was expecting, considering it’s an early autumn sci-fi flick.
