In yet another low budget "Alien" wanna be, a team of interstellar miners on an drilling expedition to a "rogue moon" accidentally uncover an ancient carnivorous something-or-other, and the usual round of cheap looking carnage ensues. This enjoyably cheesy chiller is nothing we haven't seen a zillion times before, but it was a decent time waster.

STANDARD SCI FI FARE

(2 out of 5 stars)
"One of the main problems in this low budget sci fi flick is its failure to show us the monster in full detail. A combination of ALIEN and ARMAGEDDON, WITHIN THE ROCK offers us a mining crew on a strange moon that is hurtling towards the earth. A doctor is on board to help divert the orbit of the moon. What they don't know is that the moon is harboring a million year old demon imprisoned by an alien civilization. The monster cannot function in oxygen-saturated air, so the crew decides it must battle it with nitrogen. The cast includes Xander Berkeley in his typical villain role as the money-grubbing manager of the mine crew; Caroline Barclay in a lifeless portrayal of the doctor; Brandon Tatum and Brian Krause as the gungho brothers--they're actually pretty good; Calvin Levels in his typical brother role; and Michael Zelniker as the computer nerd Archer, who is also quite good. The direction is amatuerish and the movie moves a little too slowly;it is also atrociously edited and lit. Not a horrible film, just not a good horror film."
