Synopsis: After a group of wayward teens at a wilderness boot camp break a strange 'orb' in the middle of the desert, they begin to experience attacks from a ruthless blood-sucking alien. With no chance of rescue, and nowhere to hide, they decide their only chance for survival is to fight for their lives.

THIRS We're not ready,

and it's gonna be

more dangerous out there

because you fired Greg.

Because we don't have

any money to pay him, Burt.

-You're doing this, not me.

-The hell I am.

Do you not understand

what I had to do

to get these kids out here?

The bond I put up

for the insurance company?

You want to lose all that?

Rather than risk hurting

one of the kids? Yeah.

Why? It never

bothered you before.

Okay, Burt, stop.

I'm sorry. That was low.

But look, you're the reason

that we're in this mess.

I need you to remember that.

How long are you gonna

hold that over my head?

Till I can buy you out?

Look, we'll take Roth

as a guide. It's fine.

What? No, no. Bad idea.

He's the same age

as these kids.

-That is a bad idea.

-Stop it!

It's the only idea.

Listen to me.

You know, we've helped

a ton of kids out here.

They need us, so we'll just

bring Roth on this one trip,

and then I can work all this

other stuff out, all right?

Please. He could use a little

growing up anyway.


Is it safe to come out?

Hey, yeah. Can you double-check

these bags for me?

-Everything okay?


Yeah, okay, yep.

Yeah, we'll be ready.

Thanks, bye.

Where the hell is he? It's only

45 minutes to the cave and back.

Relax. He's a kid.

He'll be here.

You sure it's a good idea

to take...

Summer, he'll be fine.

There's no other option.


Sorry, Claire, sorry.

I know I was gone longer

than you said, but you saw...

That shit's fine.

Listen to me.

We need you to be a guide

on this trip with us, okay?


I'm the same age

as these idiots.

You know how they are.

They don't listen to me.

We're short-staffed.

You're coming.

-Uncle Burt, come on.

-We're in a pinch here, Roth.

It's only seven days.

Now gear up.

Yes, sir.

I really don't believe this.

So I know you don't mind

helping your uncle,

and the hike's

a piece of cake for you,

so what's up?

I don't know, Aunt Summer.

I'm not trying to be difficult

for you or for Burt.

It's just the kids

who come here,

they treat me like some outcast,

and I don't belong with them.

That's why they need

somebody like you,

to show them

how normal kids behave.

Besides, you don't want Burt

out there alone with Claire.

He might just kill her.

Look, it's just a week.

You can do this.

I know you can.

I love you.

I love you too.

All right, I'm gonna

head back to the house.

Be safe.

You too.



Step out,

ladies and gentlemen.

Say goodbye

to civilization

and hello to Second Chance.

-Where the hell are we?


Can we go inside?

I burn easily.

Well, aren't you lucky we have

a hat and sunblock for you.

Follow me, please.

Let's go, let's move.

Welcome, everybody.

I'm Dr. Claire Taylor,

owner and director

of Second Chance.

Behind you, Mr. Goodman,

our wilderness expert

and trail guide.

Behind him is Mr. Young,

assistant trail guide.

Come on, keep up.

All right, first things first.

We're changing into these.

Standard issue.

Hell, no.

Come on, Doc.

Make sure you have a pair

of pants, boots, socks.

Trapper Andrews.

What the hell kind of

a name is "Trapper?"

I suggest you

pick up your stuff,

or you're not going

to have any stuff.

Sure thing, Pops.

I also suggest that

you don't call me "Pops."



Burt, Burt!

Let him up, Burt.

A little respect, Mr. Andrews.

She won't always

be around here to stop me.

Hey! Hey, I know you.

Yeah, you're The Crusher.

You're The Mad Dog Crusher.

Who's The Mad Dog Crusher?

Just one of the greatest

cage fighters ever.

I heard he killed
