There are some things that best remain in space. That’s what it comes down to in Image Entertainment’s Aug. 27 DVD and Blu-ray debut of director Roger Christian’s sci-fi chiller, Stranded.
A seemingly routine mission aboard a space station orbiting the moon takes on life-and-death urgency, not just for the crew, but for all mankind when debris from a passing meteor shower smacks into their home away from home leaving behind deadly spores.
Colonel Brauchman (Christian Slater) is in charge and must deal with the horror of an infection that is like none anyone has ever seen. When crew member Ava Cameron (Amy Matysio) is exposed to the spores she quickly cycles through a pregnancy (less than two days) and gives birth to a creature that can mimic anything it comes in contact with.
Very much in the spirit of John Carpenter’s remake of The Thing, only this time in space, paranoia reigns unchecked in the small confines of the station as no one can be trusted. All Brauchman knows is that if an infected host ever reaches earth an unimaginable plague could wipe out human life … as we know it!
