Ingeniously combines the schlocky fun of '50s sci-fi flicks with the shock tactics of Alien and the cautionary allure of Looking for Mr. Goodbar.

As slyly smart as it is silly, and the flick delivers a clever idea that's wedged in between some rather slick action scenes.

A cheesy rip off science fiction/horror hybrid.

It is no masterpiece, but after some of the schlock seen this year, it is nice to see a science-fiction horror film that delivers.
