Movie Info

The setting for this nail-biting thriller is a snowbound rural airport. A group of outer-space aliens, disguised as human, take over the airport, in preparation of conquering the earth. The fate of mankind ultimately rests in the hands of two others trapped in the terminal: a fiercely combative female pilot named Cathy Garrett (Chase Masterson), and convicted murderer Jack (Bruce Campbell). The only problem is, with the aliens totally camouflaged as earthlings, no one can tell the good guys from the bad. Filmed under the title The Devil's Pass, Terminal Invasion made its American cable-TV premiere via the Sci-Fi Channel on September 14, 2002.

Audience Reviews for Terminal Invasion

Aliens among us story that largely takes place in a charter flight terminal (terminal invasion get it??). Lightweight film that is really a vehicle for Bruce Campbell to do what he does so very well - glower and throw one-liners. Campbell fans (or Saturday afternoon SyFy fans) will enjoy it.

Not bad, but there's nothing really great either. Bruce Campbell plays his part well, the story is interesting, and the film plays out fine. Some of the characters are dull though, and there's a lot of slow moving scenes. The effects aren't great, but typical for a Sci-fi channel movie. Even as one of those films however, it's still a decent watch.

Made for Sci-Fi channel, this stars Bruce Campbell, and comes from Sean S. Cummingham, the man behind the original Friday The 13th. With what amounts to little more than a remake of The Thing, in an airport terminal, it's surprisingly effective. As convicted murderer, Jack, being transferred, Campbell gives a spirited performance, one devoid of lots of his usual schtick, which makes it even more impressive. With some good lines such as "You don't have to worry about who I killed before, just whom I'll kill next," he really owns it, and brings the movie some much needed, and surprising, gravitas. He doesn't do any slapstick, or make the tone any different than what it should be- dire, paranoid, and suspicious. A few other stand outs include Chase Masterson, as the charter pilot, and female lead. She holds up well against the murderer, and proves to be quite tough. C. David Johnson as a businessman who spirals out of control is very well too. Rest of the cast is decent, with no one sticking out as particularly bad. Cummingham navigates efficiently, and makes the most of a small budget. While he isn't the most impressive, he does hold the tension together nicely, and uses the small set in a few creative ways, like when they decide to go through the luggage scanner to prove they are human. The way he shoots it, just with a hard angle dividing those who have gone, and those you haven't, with the biggest objectors scattered across the upper half of the divide. It works well, and when the big reveal happens, he handles it well.
