Editorial Reviews

The truth has been kept hidden… Groom Lake, Nevada. Deep in the desert, near the infamous Area 51 military base, Commander Gossner (William Shatner) has been conducting top secret missions involving extra-terrestrials. After the government tries to shut him down, and his alien test subject is kidnapped, the Commander resorts to desperate measures.

Also includes a new, exclusive Groom Lake interview with William Shatner!

3.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Story of Friendship and Love February 4, 2003
By A Customer
I don't know what movie the other guy saw but the other review is a joke. Sexual Frenzy??? Channeling Bela Lugosi??? No way!
Yes, this is a typical Full Moon Production movie (rebadged under their new name of Shadow Entertainment) so anyone who knows Full Moon is not expecting Oscar type acting or storylines. It is however, very enjoyable.
Kate (Amy Acker who plays Fred on TV's Angel) is dying and she wants to live as much of life as possible before her disease takes control of her life. Her and her boyfriend Andy(newcomer Dan Gauthier who looks like a young Tom Cruise)wind up in this small town in the desert where a group of UFO believers live and work.
Intrigued by the stories of UFO sitings Amy convinces Dan to spend the night camping on US Military land. After a near fatal mishap in their 4 wheel drive vehicle Dan and Amy are separated and that's where the drama begins to unfold. We are witness to Dan's encounter with a space ship and Amy's encounter with the crazy UFO fanatics.
The Military becomes involved (William Shatner plays the perfect role of the head of the military base) and we discover that the secrets which lie deep below Groom Lake are not sinister at all.
Love and friendship play a big role in the climax of the movie.
I recommend it for an enjoyable movie where you don't have to worry about symbolism or deep character arcs. And sorry folks, no sexual frenzy in this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars far better than to be expected February 3, 2009
Mr. Shatner produces, directs and stars in this b-grade sci fi story that frankly is better than one might expect. Yes, b-grade, but Shatner brings his sense of fun and adventure to this 'area 51' alien story. Is he a good guy or a bad guy or simply a guy with his own agenda? You have to watch it, but here's my opinion....

I was told by some that this film was not very good. I beg to differ. If judged as a b-grade sci fi it was more than good. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not since Trek has Shatner done sci fi in such a gut-level fun way. And yes, I saw the pretrek Incubus when it was released, and Groom Lake is far better a watch in my opinion, not to mention it's in English.

Groom Lake is a Saturday afternoon in an archair with popcorn and soda.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go rent it! November 26, 2007
I found this "gem" to be highly entertaining. Sure, it is not the best movie, but if you are a Shatner fan you've got to see it. The gospel singer is especially good, though it was a shame that most of her scenes were cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Story March 17, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A couple seeking the truth about alien visitors, the commander of a secret military base at Groom Lake trying to complete one last project, and assorted UFO fanatics demonstrating dubious sanity all collide in a movie that may not win very many oscars, but is thoroughly enjoyable.

1.0 out of 5 stars shoot this movie to the stars August 11, 2003
Absolutely the worst sci-fi movie ever made. The filming is much to close up and more suited to x-rated movies. Script, acting and directing aren't much better and the special effects (or the lack of it) are very low-budget. Don't buy or even rent this. See "Communion", "Roswell", "Fire in the Sky" or "Intruders" for some serious UFO stuff.
