de Christian Alvart



Eight hundred million kilometers from Earth, on an immense, drifting spaceship, you can scream as much as you want but no one will hear you, especially if you don’t know who you are, what your mission is or what these horrific ‘things’ are that are stalking you. The answer to these questions (and more) will be discovered as the movie goes on by the spectator hand in hand with its two leads, Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster, forced to scrutinize a scene that brings to mind the one from Event Horizon by Paul W.S. Anderson (the producer here) and where the worst is always yet to come. Christian Alvart (Case 39) is back to show his excellent talent for suspense with this disquieting space thriller.
