|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Alien Cargo|
|The ultimate movie to watch with a date. Two lovers are awakened from deep sleep on an interplanetary freighter to find that they are out of fuel, life support, and that two crewmates have killed each other. A very moving story of these two characters' last eight or so hours of life. The viewer is left with a deep feeling of connection to a loved one.
--Glenn Neff, Resident Scholar
|Two members of a starfreighter crew in suspended animation awake to discover their ship off course and life-support almost exhausted, the previous two crewmembers dead by violence. Examining the bodies, they contract a mysterious disease which turns them into homicidal maniacs, bent on killing each other, but cold relieves the symptoms and they can be rational. A rescue team can barely reach them, and they try to save the remaining crew, knowing that they are already doomed, rather than expose the rest of the human race to the disease. Tragic romance at its best.
--Marc Vun Kannon, Resident Scholar
