Audience Reviews for The Alpha Incident (Gift from a Red Planet)

Five people are quarantined in a remote railway station after being exposed to an interplanetary virus that will kill them if they fall asleep. They talk. Good luck staying awake through this.

Finally a movie that Bill Rebane made that is somewhat believable and makes sense. This movie is another one of the Movies from Mill Creek's 50 Movie pack of Chiller Classics. And is about shipping a virus that came from mars and is being shipped to Alaska, along the way one of the trainmen gets into the cargo and is infected. So at the next stop Moose Point in Alaska the station and all of 5 people are put in quartile. Its supposed to be Alaska but the walls of the Station have maps of Eastern half of United States and a map of Wisconsin where movie was filmed. A surprise scene where Carol Newell goes from Miss innocent to I'm going to die so I'll be a slut on my way out. They movie is still enjoyable and worth 3 1/2 stars
