Though horror-thrillers in space typically go off the map by the end of their running time, I love the direction that Pandorum is heading. Great cast, great visuals, great thrills. I know I've been saying this a lot, but it looks like the horror genre is making one heckuva comeback.
Two crewmen awaken from hyper-sleep aboard a spacecraft. None of their equipment is working, and their memories are incomplete. What was their mission? How much time has passed? Where are they? Who are they? As they try to piece things together, they discover they are not alone, and the ship's new inhabitants - tribal warriors carrying crudely made weapons - are moving among them, intent on killing all aboard. As the space travelers unravel the frightening and deadly secrets the ship harbors, they realize the survival of mankind hinges on their actions. They must regain control of the ship before Pandorum takes over.
I have grown somewhat sick of Cam Gigandet's involvement in teeny-boppers, and am glad to see the actor reaching out with Pandorum. Check out him, Ben Foster or Dennis Quaid at Apple or embedded below (via TrailerAddict):
