Pandorum is a German-American sci-fi horror film that comes to you by the same creator of Antibodies (Antikorper): Christian Alvart. Lieutenant Payton (Dennis Quaid) and Corporal Bower (Ben Foster) are aboard a spacecraft that journeys the darkest edges of the galaxy. However, one evening, as they awake from a deep slumber aboard the ship, they have difficulty remembering who they are and how they got to be where they are. They eventually realize that the 60,000 passengers who once accompanied them on their journey, are no longer with them. Have they disappeared? They become even more skeptical when they start hearing eerie noises which come from some unknown location inside the ship. Desperate to escape this sleepy nightmare of a trip, Corporal Bower crawls into a tight air shaft where he looks for an exit. Meanwhile, Lt. Payton tries to locate a radio transmitter. But there is a dark, ominous force on their tail. Will Payton and Bower come face to face with the force? Pandorum is sure to make you squeal in fear!
