What a grimy sci-fi thriller this was. It starts with a massacre - a confusing massacre, and moves on to rescue team about to warp to a space-station far off and rescue the one survivor: Whit Carmichael. And, maybe more importantly, to stop a certain payload from reaching its destination: Earth. A payload with terrible consequence.
It's a psychological thriller, where an unknown contagion turns people, makes them mad, makes them claw at their skin as if it was covered with acid; run rampant killing each other, one by one. It's not particularly gory or graphically unsettling, though there is blood, but it portrays the conflict in a way that it's perceptible. On an isolated space station. In the mind of the main character. It's not difficult to follow, but if you let yourself immerse into their world I wonder what you'll wonder.
It reminds me a bit of Ghosts to Mars, though now without all the props and heavy metal. This is the real deal. It's trippy, tense, and twisted, and though it's on a budget they really made the most out of that budget. Even the special effects aren't bad, but it's the script and acting that really make the movie. Don't watch this if you're looking for some light-hearted sci-fi adventure. It's a wild ride; with a good dose of psychological horror and uncertainty.
