Yeah man them there aliens got a disco vibe going on ;-D
1 August 2004 | by fibreopticSee all my reviews

WOW another excellent movie to appear on The Horror Channel....but enough of my sarcasm, time to talk about them aliens who are trippin the light fantastic.

A group of aliens kidnap some people and take them to a medical clinic to perform seemingly harmless experiments. Most of this movie is set in a clinic and has the kidnapped people trying to figure out what is going on while a few of them under go simple tests but always are being observed by the aliens. That bad guy from The Karate Kid is in this and we have a totally obvious token black guy. The oriental woman doesn't even get to say a word!

The acting is decent but the sets are boring and/or cheap looking. The aliens are made of the same stuff they make disco glitter balls out of. They communicate to the humans with sounds but the whole sound/picture language is way flawed but one of the women picks it up and asks them complex questions using this method. Totally stupid.

A totally bland and cheap movie which is interesting to watch but not much more than that. If it was made today with better effects i doubt it would be that much better. 5/10
