Humanity lives in fear of an alien invasion: for the first time in history, a coded message from outer space has reached planet Earth. A few months later, the 12,000 residents of Sepulveda vanish. Authorities immediately quarantine the area, a free zone where drug trafficking and illicit sex were the most common businesses. When strange magnetic phenomena are observed, military authorities grudgingly concede the possibility of an alien offensive, and send professor Larsen -a renowned astrophysicist specialized in UFOs- to lead a quick investigation in the ghost town.Written by
This is one of my favourite SciFi-flicks. Its a about the mysterious dissaperance of the 12000 citizens of pleasure-island Sepulveda. Because of the suspision on alien abduction astronomy-professor Larsen (Karyo) is called in to handle the investigation. This movie has the sense-of-wonder element typical for hard scifi litterature and movies (such as 2001) whitout the dryness typical for that genre. It is lowtone wierd, with hypnotic female president of the world, psychadelicsusing general, genderless maniac organdealer, telephacy-cybernetics, a blue guard, swat-team uprisings and more.
