Storyline

Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected. Written by ElDiomedes

Crazy Credits

The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying. See more »

Lazy writing, relies on cheap scares and stupidity to advance the story.
29 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film had so much potential, yet quickly shows all the acting talent is wasted by a poor plot and terrible writing.

This is more akin to Jason X rather than Arrival/Interstellar. Know that you're getting a monster driven horror movie, where Phds/MDs are easily outwitted and all the clichés of the genre exist.
