    Waste of time that\'s for sure because this movie is low budget and the acting is not something special. www.moviezya.com

    Excellent acting, intelligent twist on an old plot (aliens invading) and suspenseful. Definitely worth the it. I can\'t wait for the sequel.

    Plot: Americans in Russia wearing light bulb necklaces and running from alien electric currents. Opinion: Not scary at all. This movie wasted not only time but the electricity it took to watch this film! Vote: 1 Star because I had to vote in order to post.
