Comments: An explosion at a prison called Tattersall causes all kinds of trouble. Prisoners are free and have hostages. Elaine and Chaz are special agents there to help the local authorities. Bonner is the prisoner in charge of the others and he is a cold-blooded killer.
The two FBI agents are professional. Elaine tries to make the situation more relaxed but there is no doubt she is in charge.
The horror starts as two escaped prisoners find something not normal. One look at it and you will feel fear. Things escalate fast. There are some fantastic visuals.
The weird stuff is already happening. Insects are in the air and they are illustrated as strange looking things even alien looking. What happens when they sting someone is a mystery as to its implications. What do these alien insects want?
The ship is an awesome sight.
There is lots of tension between the authorities and the prisoners. Will any of them survive? Terror has come to Tattersall prison.
