Storyline

Air force Lieutenant Harris starts for a flight to Boa Boa, on board Reverend Mitchell with a box containing a part of a top-secret extraterrestrial key. They get lost in a supernatural storm and find themselves after an emergency landing in kind of a Bermuda triangle, 5,000 miles off their course. Home again, no one believes Harris' story, and his crew suspiciously denies it too. Harris is thrown in jail, but manages to escape. Together with Mitchell's daughter he seeks the lost part of the key and its secret. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Worse than I remember
9 June 2000 | by waynerSee all my reviews

I actually saw this at the theatre 14 years ago. Then I decided it was the worse movie ever, man did watching it on video not disappoint. What can I say, terrible story, mediocre acting, and dialog as bad as something that I would write. Probably the least suspenseful ending I have ever seen. I would not recommend wasting the 90 minutes on it.
