Robert Haynes: Outstanding sci-fi-horror-thriller. This excellently scripted, excellently acted chiller is not for those of you expecting action and effects,(not many I would imagine) but rather for those of you who like to use that ol' grey matter a wee bit. If you enjoyed Event Horizon, then RUN don't WALK to this underplayed masterpiece. It's Event Horizon Lite, but still very powerful indeed. Gives you goosebumps too !

Hannes Viljoen: Get a life, Get real, Go and look at something more realistic...

Matthew Ludik: Intense!!!

Bruce Humphrey: This good Sci-fi movie became a somewhat convoluted psycho-thriller towards the end. I noticed that the audience became very restless. This is a clone of ''The Abyss'' and I think the original was far superior in all respects.

Hannelie Appelgryn: Had me on the edge of my seat all they way!!!!

Paul van der Westhuizen: 3 Great actors, 1 great storyline. Better than Event Horison.

Rowan McDonald: A powerful very involving movie - its even better if you have read the book.
