After a series of brutal, unexplained murders in a remote forest, a rogue military unit is recruited to hunt for whoever – or whatever – has rendered the attacks. In order to carry out the investigation, they need the help of the only survivor, Kate. But first they have to get her released from the mental institution she’s been confined to since the horrific attack.
User Reviews: Before I begin my review of this film, I’d like to point out some interesting tidbits about the film. Firstly, the cool monster shown on the box art is from the film "Breeders". Secondly, this creature doesn’t even appear in film. Third, according to IMDb this film is a sequel to "Unseen Evil", which I have not seen (though based on what I saw here I’m not sure I want to anyways), but I rented this under the title "Alien 3000", a title which has no relevance to the film.
Anyways, this masterpiece has a bunch of foul-mouthed and stupid "soldiers" from the "Paranormal government research agency" (good to see our tax dollars hard at work) going into a remote mountain range to look for missing soldiers. What they find instead is a blood-thirsty creature capable of turning invisible (I didn’t sense any "Predator" vibes while watching this one, no sir!), which begins killing them off one by one. If you’re looking for a B movie with cringe-inducing dialog, horrid production values and deliciously awful special effects, you’ve rentedor, Lord have mercy on you’re soul, boughtthe right movie. Everything about the film is cheap and laughable. The special effects, as one would imagine, are the funniest aspect of this film. The alien creature is brought to life by a combination of hideously bad CGI and a slightly less awful man-in-a-suit, either way it looks stupid and cheesy. The miniatures are among the worst in motion picture history. The toy helicopter, the remote controlled Ford F-150 pick-up (substituting for a Jeep pick-up in non-effects scenes–I love how the makers even left in real-sized shrubbery just to make it look worse), and the explosion of the "Paranormal research" headquarters were all so pitiful that I was laughing until tears blurred my vision. The gore effects were unimpressive but abundant, and as another viewer mentioned, the splitting-in-two of a character’s head was especially bad.
I’ll give the film credit where credit is duethe lead actress, Megan Molloy, Was very good, and deserves better roles than this. Everything else is bad–but entertainingly so. Highly recommended for fans of crappy movies.
