An advanced race of aliens descends upon Earth with a single goal - the blood of eight million humans to save their own dying planet. The aliens have planted a doomsday device over the North Pole, and if the Earth doesn't... more » supply enough victims, they'll activate it and destroy the planet. However, if the Earth does comply, the device will become a power supply capable of meeting all of its needs for the next 300 years. Every country in the world must surrender some citizens, and the United States begins a lottery system. Anyone unlucky enough to be chosen is dead within 24 hours, rendered into liquid, which is then sent back to the alien world. One scientist, Steven Chase, whose daughter is chosen for the lottery, decides to fight rather than surrender his only child. Suddenly he must race against time to find the aliens' weakness as the invaders decide to abandon their agreement and simply harvest humans at will, leaving death and destruction in their wake.« less
"This is a pretty good, low-budget Sci-Fi movie. It wasn't your typical "battle the creature," or "fight the evil virus" Sci-Fi movie. It was a movie with a compelling premise - what would happen if the Earth had to surrender millions of people in order to save the entire planet? It tells it from the point of view of several camps: a father who's daughter is selected, a resistance group, and the aliens themselves. The acting is good, the visual effects are first rate, and the director keeps the pace and tension moving at a brisk rate. While clearly a low-budget movie, the film had heart. I recommend it."
This was a great SiFI movie. I would recommend it to all.

Not worth the time

"I'll disagree with J. Fuzz. I say this is a badly acted B-rated movie. It is something I would have expected to see on T.V. 20 years ago. Don't waste your time with this one. The special effects are ok, but that is it. The sad part is that this could have been such a good movie had it been done correctly. By the way, hate to ruin anything, but the aliens look human of course. It could have been pulled off with better acting."
This is a mini remake of "V"

"This is like a mini remake of "V" from the 80s. Unlike "V" they do give a reason for the attack but it's silly. "V" is better. See "V" instead."
Pay others to watch it!!

"This was worst made film made by filmmakers who had the benefit of seeing other films and reading Sci-Fi material. If this film had been made 40 years ago, it would be worthy of praise. In the light of what we know about making Sci-fi movies and actors and filmmakers and people with money and time who have been to the movies , it was a waste of time making it and of those who watched it. This is not good Sci-fi. Everything was bad, the way people talked , died ,ran, hurryed along, drove, acted. The screenwriter was deaf and blind to how people talk and act. The special effects and CGI showed they had time and money."
