When an iridescent meteorite plummets from outer space and into the property and foundations of a remote New England estate, a malignant force begins to insidiously permeate the lives of an unassuming family. The effects are gradual - time begins to dilate, nature assumes an otherworldly hue - and all things bright and beautiful eventually mutate and corrupt under its influence. So proceeds this eerie adaptation of the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, one of horror's most haunting, here presented by the enigmatic South African filmmaker Richard Stanley. Returning to Midnight Madness 29 years after his hypnotic killer-robot fandango Hardware first premiered in the section, Stanley summons his uniquely hallucinogenic sensibilities to envelope his endearing characters in surreal, incremental dread. At first, their domestic bliss is quietly fraught with an undercurrent of unnerving tension, before eventually boiling over into delirious, acid-fueled terror. The patriarch of this doomed brood is none other than Nicolas Cage, continuing his recent renaissance as a midnight-movie staple with an increasingly unhinged performance that reliably ricochets among every technique in the Stanislavski playbook. The rest of the ensemble, which includes Joely Richardson and Tommy Chong, play effective foils to Cage's delirium, but the real star of the show is the alien entity itself. This all-consuming, dispassionate menace manifests itself in a series of grotesque, body-horror, and psychedelic spectacles, worthy of its ineffable literary origins.

I've seen this film before on cable years ago but i still remember it well, it was when i was young. As i was watching this film i thought to myself, "this movie is really going to be good". Well, i was wrong. This film is really good. I really loved the effects, the premise, the idea, the story, the writing and the acting. All the acting was great. The premise of the film is really good too. You have a group of young people, all of whom are novices at the same time, who have gone off to a remote town and are staying there until they have completed their respective training programs. These young people have become very kind and friendly to each other and a few of them even start to develop feelings for each other. The idea behind the film is really interesting and pretty well thought out. I really liked the idea of this film. I think that the actors did a very good job with what they had to work with and the effects were great. I really enjoyed this film. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys sci-fi or horror films. I rate this film a 7 out of 10.

Sci-fi is hard to do well. It is not easy to capture the imagination and make a good movie out of it. However, the screenwriter and director of this movie has done a great job. This is a Sci-fi movie which follows a group of friends who head to a space station. The group soon find themselves trapped on the space station. With no food or water they make do with what they can find on the station. One of the main characters is played by the ever underrated Jeremy Sisto. The acting is very good for this type of movie. If you are a fan of the genre then this is a must see movie. I am going to give this movie a 7 out of 10.

This film really is a winner. It's got everything: A fantastic cast, terrific special effects, and some fantastic plot twists. The problem I have with this movie is that the plot just doesn't make sense. It's just too ridiculous to be believable. The aliens look like they were made of aluminum foil and the human characters look like they're about to fall asleep. But, the film's atmosphere is just outstanding. I didn't think I would like this film, but I ended up loving it. The film is much better than the previous two movies in the series. The film has a great story, great special effects, and some good action scenes. The special effects are so good that I never noticed the visual effects during the film. The film has a great score, as well. This film deserves a 9/10. I would recommend it to fans of sci-fi horror films. (7/10)

I remember seeing this movie back in the 80's, and i remember thinking that it was a really cool movie. The concept of the movie was good and i liked the concept of the alien ships that got to the moon. I was hoping that they would do a sequel or a prequel to this movie. but no. I guess they just didn't have the money.but maybe they did because the movie does have some good effects. And if you have the chance to see this movie, i would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good Sci-fi movie, especially if you are a fan of John Carpenter. this movie has a very good feel to it, like a lot of John Carpenter movies.and also has some really cool effects. The only thing that i did not like about this movie was the ending. I know that this movie was made to be a prequel, but this movie was not really a prequel. It was just a normal movie. The ending was kind of pointless and kind of sad. But the good thing about this movie is that you will never really know what happens to the crew of the ship. They just kind of went from one place to another. Like if they just went to a planet and they just kind of found out what happened to the crew. It was kind of a weird ending but it was kind of a cool ending. I will always like John Carpenter's movies, even though i am not a huge fan of John Carpenter's movies. But this movie is a great sci-fi movie, and it is a great movie to watch with a group of friends.

I remember the first time I saw this movie. I was probably 12 or 13 years old, and I was hooked on the movie for the first time. I thought it was a great movie, and I've seen it many times since. The movie was originally made for a TV show called "The Outer Limits", and the movie was adapted for the big screen. It is a really great movie. It is very interesting, and very suspenseful. The acting was excellent, and the special effects were great. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys sci-fi movies. 8/10

You don't want to be a self indulgent idiot and actually think this movie is good. It is, at best, okay, and the character of the zombie child is annoying, but all in all it is pretty decent. It's about a group of scientists and a big military operation who set up a project to make a vaccine that will keep zombies in their cages. Unfortunately the vaccine doesn't work, and the zombies find another way to get their hands on it. The film is pretty slow-paced, but once it gets to the middle it gets interesting. The acting is good, especially from the four main characters, and there are some interesting ideas in the script. The ending is pretty good, though, and the film is an interesting watch.

After reading the reviews, I was quite curious to see this film. I'm glad I did. It's a film that keeps you guessing throughout the entire movie. It's a film that will keep you guessing until the end. The only thing that bothered me was that the ending was a little too quick. I think the movie could have been longer. Overall, I think this is a great movie. I give it a 8 out of 10.

This is a great science fiction movie. I have no idea what the film is about, but I'm pretty sure it's not science fiction. It is very good science fiction. I think that the production design is very good. The script is interesting. I think that the acting is good. The special effects are good. I think that the casting was very good. This movie is a must-see movie. It is worth seeing, even though it is not very good.

I saw this film last night. I must say it was worth the hype. I wasn't expecting it to be a typical Sci-Fi film, but it was. It's a good film. I enjoyed the cast and the acting. I also enjoyed the atmosphere. It had a good pace. It has a good storyline. It has a good ending. Overall, I liked the film. It was good for what it was. I recommend this film.

It's worth watching the movie only if you're a space geek or just want to watch a film that doesn't make any sense. If you're into the genre and want to see how some people do space projects, you'll like this film.

The 'Alien' movies are the best sci-fi movies ever made. This movie is in the same league as the 'Alien' movies. The plot is just as good as the other movies and the special effects are the best. This movie is a must see for anyone who loves sci-fi and Alien fans.

I'm very surprised at the rating this movie got. I remember when I first saw the movie as a kid it had an almost eerie feeling to it. Sure the plot was a bit confusing but it was so much fun. It was a great movie to watch with a group of friends. I have never seen a movie that made me feel like I was a kid again. I was fascinated by the space ships and the alien creatures. I'm surprised there were no special effects in this movie. It was shot on the cheap. I think the special effects were not as good as they could have been. It didn't really have a storyline to it. It was just about the aliens and what they did to the children. The ending was really great and it was funny at the same time. I can't wait to see the movie again and I hope it will get some better ratings.

A rocket launches a man into space, so he can become a god. He's an alien that wants to eat all humans, and the government is trying to get rid of him. But the government sends a military team to find him, so they have to put a man on the rocket to save him. Sounds pretty simple, but the movie is actually pretty good. The only bad thing about the movie is that it has a huge budget. The special effects are pretty good, and it looks like it was filmed on a set in the middle of a desert. I don't know if that was just a practical effect, or if the movie was shot in the desert, but it was very realistic. The story isn't great, but it's watchable. There are a lot of references to other movies, and it's fun to watch. It's pretty predictable, but it's still a good movie. I like this movie, and I recommend it.

With an all-star cast (especially Bill Paxton and Belinda Borgnine) the movie really is a great movie. I have seen it several times and still love it. I really don't know why I haven't watched it for years and years but when I see the movie on TV I just keep checking it out. I think I have watched it about 60 times and still love it. The special effects are pretty cool and the storyline is great. It is interesting to see the special effects in the early 1970's. I was impressed that the effects in this movie are better than today's CGI effects. I think it is a great movie for people who like science fiction. I would recommend this movie to any movie buff. 8/10

I saw this film as part of the special programming of "the midnight movie" in the local movie theater. I am glad I saw it. It was not only a good movie, but it had a great story to tell. I was intrigued by the story and fascinated by the alien and the story. It was very good and I hope to see more science fiction films like this in the future. The acting was good. The alien was very creepy and was quite a good actor. I also loved the special effects. I was surprised at how well the special effects were done. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes science fiction or aliens. I also would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good movie.

I am a big fan of the Alien movies, but have not seen the original, and don't care much for the Alien vs. Predator movies. I was somewhat disappointed in this film. The film was decent, and it had some good effects, but the ending was disappointing. Also, the acting was great in this film, but it was not the best in the series. The biggest flaw in the film is the ending. They could have ended it in a way that made it a bit better, but they didn't. Also, the ending of the film is the best in the series. It shows the characters all being safe, and the End of the World is coming, and what will happen to the Earth. However, in the end, there is a bunch of zombies and monsters fighting each other, and the Earth is destroyed. I really would have liked to see more of the End of the World, and the survivors finding a way to get home. The Alien vs. Predator movies are probably my favorite series of movies. I really enjoyed this film, and thought it was a good movie. I would recommend this film to anyone.

This movie is the first entry of a series that we will be seeing for years to come. It is a good example of a movie that is written and directed to be the absolute best. The movie has an absolute solid plot that follows along the lines of the Alien movies, and we don't have to worry about the movies being over-hyped. We can just enjoy it for what it is. The acting in the movie is fantastic, and the acting by many of the actors in the movie is perfect. Most people say that they don't have a great sense of acting, but if you look at it this way, the acting in this movie is really good. It is not that they are all great actors, but I think that they are all really good at what they do. The movie also has a very good visual style that it makes the movie feel like you are right in the movie. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I think that this movie is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good movie. It is an absolute must see.

It's like a mix between Alien and Alien 3, but without the Alien part. It's like Alien vs Predator, but with the Predator being the main character and the Aliens being the main enemy. I really like it, because it's a really good movie. It's not a movie for everybody, but if you're a fan of Aliens or Aliens vs Predator, you'll like it.

In this cult classic from the seventies, "Alien" meets "War of the Worlds" with a mixture of aliens and a pretty good plot. Some of the special effects are a little dated, but they still look cool. I still think this is a really good movie.

This movie is better than "Sleepaway Camp" for one reason. This film has a much more believable plot. The people in this film have been hypnotized and are living in an actual utopia. The characters are likable. The plot is good. There is a good moral lesson here for all of us. This is definitely a must see for anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi flick.

Tall, thin, and pale. A holographic poster for a big movie is popping out of his head. His 'Hollywood' experience has been over for some time, he needs to get back in the saddle. The poster is a screen, as if it were made for the big screen. An intergalactic bounty hunter is seeking out a lone alien whose life has been saved by a holographic message from the ship's captain. The bounty hunter is almost instantly killed when the holographic message is decoded. He then begins to slowly become more and more aware of his surroundings. The film ends with a holographic message that is presumably the ship's captain's and crew's holographic message from the past. The alien's life has been saved, and the holographic message is from the ship's captain. The alien's life was saved from a form of cancer. His life will be saved from this cancer, but he will have to live with the fact that he is still a hologram and cannot go on living. This is obviously not the end of his story, as he will go on living for a long time after this message is received.

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about seeing this movie. I've seen the trailers and the film was promising, but I was skeptical. I was pleasantly surprised. The story was interesting and the cast was good. I enjoyed the story and the twists and turns. The story kept me guessing until the very end. I don't think I've ever seen a film that was so suspenseful and unpredictable. I really liked the way the film was filmed. It was dark, but at the same time it was beautiful. I really enjoyed the film. I was glad I saw it and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Sci-Fi or Horror.

I have seen this movie and it was awesome. I am a huge fan of the Alien movies and the first movie in this series was amazing. I loved the movie, I thought it was really cool and I really liked the ending. I liked the movie, I really enjoyed it. I was so excited when I heard about this movie because I was waiting for it to come out. I watched it and it was awesome. I think it was really cool that the movie was made in the 70's and the actors looked like they were in their late 20's. The movie is really cool, it is a really good movie and I would recommend it to anybody. The acting is really good, the story is good, the movie is cool and I would recommend it to anybody.

A group of teenage friends are heading to a camping trip in the wilderness. As they get closer to camp, they discover the dead bodies of a group of aliens. The townspeople suspect that the dead aliens have attacked, and are killing people. To get to the truth of what's happening, the group must make a series of mistakes, and deal with a lot of suspense and mystery. The film was well made, the acting was good, and the effects were realistic. I don't understand why this movie has such a low rating on IMDb, but I was hoping that it would get better. It was actually quite good, and it is worth seeing, even if you are not a fan of horror movies.

A man has an accident in a remote area and wakes up in a strange place. This film is one of my all time favorites. I loved the whole premise of the film. It is a weird sci-fi film with a lot of weirdness. It is very entertaining and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good horror film. The acting is great and the special effects are very good. I think this film is a great film to watch with friends. I give this film a 9 out of 10.

A space ship is orbiting Earth, but it is a decoy, it's really a pyramid-shaped ship, and the crew is playing games with the ship. When they open the cargo bay doors to release the rest of the crew, they discover that they are being chased by some aliens, who take the ship's weapons and launch them at the ship, which is a huge pyramid shaped ship. If that wasn't enough, they encounter some more aliens, and the end is as if it's been an episode of The Outer Limits. (In fact it has been). The special effects are good, although the aliens seem to be looking like they were made of cardboard. The dialogue is good, the music is good, and the plot is interesting. Not bad, but not great either. It's worth watching, just don't expect anything special.

If you like a good old-fashioned thriller with lots of gore, then you will love this movie. The movie starts off with a car crash, and some people get killed, but we don't know why. The story then shifts to the future where a strange virus has been found on Earth and it has turned into a giant virus that turns everyone into a zombie. I really liked the ending. It is very well done and made me jump out of my seat. The special effects were good and the music was great. The movie was very creepy and scary. The acting was decent. I think it was good for the time it was made. I didn't like the end, but I guess I don't have to. If you are a fan of horror movies, then you will like this movie. I give it a 7 out of 10.

When I first heard about this movie, I didn't really have high hopes. The ratings were horrible, I was worried that the story might be cliched, I couldn't find the story interesting, and the ending left me a little confused. But, the movie was actually quite good. The effects were very well done, and the acting was decent. The movie itself is pretty scary. The special effects are probably the best I've seen in a movie this year, and the movie doesn't have any flaws. There's a few plot holes, but, it's a solid movie. I recommend this movie to any horror movie fans. 7/10

I really loved this film. It had a few issues, but I actually quite liked the film. It was better than I expected and definitely better than the actual trailer made it look like it was. The special effects were really impressive and made the film worth watching. It was also really well acted. I'd definitely recommend this film to any sci-fi fan out there, and I'm not sure I would have the same opinion of it if it was only made for the big budget.

This film is a definite must see. It's a "spy film" that has been done many times before, but never so well. The acting is great, the special effects are outstanding, and the plot is believable and makes sense. There is one thing I didn't like about the film, and that is the ending. It was a bit too predictable. The plot was so good, it was hard to predict what was going to happen. I think the ending could have been better. Overall, I highly recommend this film. You won't be disappointed.

When I first heard that this was being remade into a movie I thought that I would be seeing a sci-fi movie and that it would be nothing like the original. I was wrong. I was right. This movie is more of a horror/suspense movie. It is very good, especially the first half. The second half is a little better but still not as good as the first half. But it is still a good movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good horror/suspense movie. I give it an 8 out of 10. It is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good sci-fi movie.

I really liked this film, I thought it was a great example of a film that shows that the technology in the future is not just for killing aliens, it can be used for good as well. I also thought it was a great example of a film that shows how a man can become a hero and a hero can become a man. I really enjoyed this film, I liked the action, the atmosphere and the characters. I also liked the effects, the costumes and the atmosphere. I thought that the acting was good, especially the man who played the hero. The film is a must see for all sci-fi fans, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good sci-fi film.

I had never seen the original 'The Thing' before this movie, but I am glad I did. The story is very good, the special effects are great, and the acting is excellent. I liked the 'alien' that was introduced in this movie, it was much more believable than the previous 'Alien' movies. The movie was not overlong, and the special effects were very good. I also liked the ending, it was not predictable. Overall, a good movie, but not a 'great' movie. I give it 8 out of 10.
