A looming meteor shower has all the astronomers around the globe waiting in anticipation. Either that, or they are just horny, at least according to this movie.
A meteorite slams into the woods next to a group of camping 20-somethings. One of the girls makes the mistake of touching it...and masturbates. No, I'm not kidding, why do you ask?
Anyway, the group reconvenes and heads to bed. Samantha, the rock-touching hitchhiker, is sleeping in Darin and Mia's tent alone, while Darin snoozes in the car. She wakes up, and molests the drunken tool, bringing him back to the tent. Suddenly, her eyes go purple!!!
The next morning, Darin and Samantha are nowhere to be found. The rest of the group scream at each other until Samantha comes back and tells them not to touch the rock, that it's evil.
Not knowing what to do, the group splits up to try and find help and/or Darin. Who will survive the shiny purple aura of the meteorite?

I'd just like to say: poor Justin. Surrounded by a psycho, mood-swinging girlfriend, an extremely drunk best friend and his completely annoying, bitchy girlfriend, and then this whole thing with the meteorite happens. Every time that poor man makes a suggestion, he gets screamed at for five minutes. On top of all this, he looks like Aaron Lewis from the band Staind. He walks around the whole movie rubbing his head saying "Jesus Christ" or some variation of that; i.e. "Jesus Fucking Christ" or "Oh, Christ." I had to laugh every time he said it (which was about, oh, two thousand times or so), cause this fool was just having a bad, bad weekend.
So, the movie. This is the second major flick from indie trash-film maker SV Bell, the first being The Night They Returned. While that movie was a "trashy horror movie," this is more of a "trashy sci-fi movie." I mean, it's about a rock from space that makes women horny and drool ketchup on people's necks, I mean bite them, so your imagination will have to stretch to fit around this one. There is actually a story to this flick, which is nice. There isn't a lot of blood, and when there is, it's just people covered in it as an after-effect.
I was definitely impressed with the news reports, they looked pretty real. The grand scale of the flick is pretty nice, as you get the idea that this whole ordeal is just beginning.
One of the main problems I had was whenever the characters would have dialogue, they would stop whatever they were doing, and just talk. Can they not chew gum and throw javelins at the same time? I know whenever I am doing something, like walking or driving my car, and I feel like I need to say something, I stop dead in my tracks and say what it is I have to say. But that's just me.
I did appreciate the Zombie-like ending, and the movie as a whole definitely had more story this time around. Some of the cheesy dialogue needed to be cut, though; I mean, cut hard. "Tell me, while people are disappearing and running around with blood on them, are we meant to be, Justin?" Come on. There was also a lot of coincidences, like the whole three brothers thing; that was just silly.
It's an ok romp, and a marked improvement over the last movie, but the team still needs some work. But, it strives to be a cheesy, trashy movie, and it succeeds, so you get what you expect at least.
Good GOD Mia was annoying. I guess that was the point, but every time she opened her mouth, I wanted to choke her!Hide Full Review
