            Roughly 200 years in the future, intergalactic police officer Ballard and her team have an assignment of transferring the most dangerous criminal, on Earth or any other planet his name Desolation Williams, to a prison in the outpost city of Chryse on the planet Mars.  In an unexpected turn of events, a mining team on the Mars has unearthed an ancient Martian defense mechanism that releases the ghosts of warriors of the planet’s original inhabitants who possess most of the workers. Arriving at the outpost, Ballard and her team including Desolation, must band together to survive the vengeful spirits bent on exterminating all human life on their home planet.      

            Carpenter scores once more, getting Two Skipped Beats with this Sci-fi horror flick on the Roger Moore movie scale.  It was a definite great addition to all things that are Carpenter.  With a great ensemble cast that led this film with his direction to be as great as it was.  Mix a ghost story, an alien story and a slasher flick together and you get a horror masterpiece that is Carpenter’s work.  As always be afraid, be very afraid.
