Reviews

Sci-fi horror in which a group of journalists touring the top secret Area 51 facility stumble upon one of its most mysterious inhabitants. When pressure from the American population forces the Air Force to provide journalists with access to Area 51 Colonel John Martin (Bruce Boxleitner) is assigned the duty of escorting members of the press around the facility. However the tour of journalists Sam (John Shea) Claire (Vanessa Branch) Mindy (Lena Clark) and Kevin (Damon Lipari) goes disastrously wrong when one of the facility's alien inmates takes advantage of their visit to escape from his cell. How much do the journalists really want to see what goes on at Area 51?

I first found out about Area 51 in the mid nineties as the height of the X-Files' fame. Area 51 is the codename given to a section of land in the Nevada desert in America. Allegedly, it contains the remains of crashed UFOs etc. I always thought it would make a good movie. I still think it would - the emphasis being that it would make a GOOD movie. Sadly, this is no good.

Er, where do I begin? The cheap special effects? The shoddy acting? The wafer-thin characters? The ludicrous plot holes? It's all there - unfortunately.

Basically, what you have here, is a made-for-TV movie, i.e. wobbly sets, unknown actors and not much more.

Bottom line - it's just short of okay. Some people may like it, but not many. There are so many better alien films out there - like `Alien' for example.

Plus side - the leading lady is cute (that's probably more a plus point for the guys - I can see too many women swooning over sci-fi stalwart Bruce Boxleighter).

Oh, well, never mind. I may have wasted an hour and a half of my life, but it was still more entertaining than a Transformers movie.

(and, who gave this film 5/5 on Amazon? they serious must be taking the pi...)

Ok before I get chastised I'm gonna point out that I'm only giving this three stars because some people will like this movie, I mean for Blaire Witch has a fan base, if thats not bizarre I don't know what is.

So I usually quite like the 'After Dark' films but even I can't defend this too much, who am I kidding? I bought it for £1.50 watched it and got rid of it in the same day. The film centres in Area 51 the infamous flight base that is supposedly harbouring aliens, in this film the aliens are more like prisoners and one of them who can shapeshift and for some reason likes techno decides to escape during a tour taking a couple of very dangerous friends with him.

So really that's about as much as I remember about this movie which is really quite sad because it could've been really good. I haven't got a clue who any of the actors are and even more weird I can't find any clips on youtube. So in honesty I'd say avoid since nothing in this film is going to stand out and make you 'WOW! That was Awesome!!' too much but some may like it

Hold on to yer' seats as the 'after dark' series brings you this tense movie ( for your pleasure ? )
Officials of the secretive 'Area 51' unit give in to public pressure and speculation by allowing a ''restricted'' tour of the base
by some well known journalist's.
The area however has 'beings' not of this world within it's compound, it is not intended that the visitor's get anywhere near these........but, things go wrong when some of the out-of-this-world creatures break out causing havoc and terror.
Has some decent graphics on board, and is worth a spin for 'horror-feast' fans, not great but watchable.
(I believe 'Area 51' probably does harbour secrets, why not ?....what do you believe ?

This is one of the worst films I can remember watching for a long, long time. The acting is just......HAM. As each entirely unconvincing alien makes an appearance, every battle-hardened soldier with gun in hand just stands gawping at it in mock terror until he is either killed or the alien makes a getaway. It continues throughout this truly awful film. I laughed loudest at the end during an aerial shot of a hangar exploding as some 'dead' bodies on the ground move away from the blast!

Don’t be deceived by the recent release date. This must have been made on a budget in the 1980s. It shows.

Some people say they were pleasantly surprised.
I trusted these people and bought it. It was pretty crap.
Acting wasn't really that great. Really the only thing the movie had going for it was the dude from Tron was in it.
I thought it would be dark, scary, full of jumps, brutal but nope. Fair enough it's got violence but it's just as cheesey as the damn film. Dude gets stabbed in the face, looked like he enjoyed it.
Please for love of Gandhi, don't buy it. Trust me, you would rather watch something else.

I have seen a few After Dark films, and this has to be the worst i have seen. I Got this film from pound land, and oh my god how bad is this film. The film is based on Area 51, and when two famous reporters turn up, to investigate the possible rumours of aliens being kept by the us government, all hell breaks loose when some of the worst aliens escape.

Some of the deaths were good, with some good special effects, but the aliens looked like people in Halloween costumes, plus the soundtrack made this film feel like a tv movie, this film was just stupid and just not scary, felt more like a black comedy. Awful film and one to forget.,

You'll probably not remember much about "51", if anything.

It's basically another splatter flick. That's probably the weakness of these After Dark films; for a horror festival there isn't much variety. Apparently, After Dark commissioned their own films for their latest festival - films that I can't imagine being shown at any festival that didn't commission them.

However, it has different aliens and thus variention in its disposal of victims, a surplus of potential victims, among who many actors playing bit parts appeared to be infusing their barely-seen characters with personality, suggested they really were trying to portray their borderline extras with enthusiasm than you'd expect. These "borderline extras" probably had no personality on paper with the actors' mannerisms giving them substance. And with several people adding to the body count, it's never quite boring.

The movie is worth watching if you're looking for something reasonably predictable for passing time. Not terrible, just not noteworthy.
