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.
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.
