When the crew of an American tugboat boards an abandoned Russian research vessel, the alien life regards them as a virus which must be destroyed. When a typhoon cripples their boat, the crew sails into the eye of the storm, where they discover a high-tech Russian communications and research vessel adrift. Only one Russian crew member is still alive, raving about "intelligent lightning." They soon discover that an alien life form has taken over the ship's computers and is churning out mechanical warriors. With their own boat destroyed, the crew must battle the creature as the ship reenters the storm.
In 1999, prolific French video game developer Cryo (also known as Cryo Interactive Entertainment) released on PlayStation "Virus: It is Aware", their action/horror third person shooter tie-in video game that was very loosely based on this movie.
It is a decent sci-fi horror/thriller, much better Than Its Reputation!
I don't see why people hate this movie?
Sci-fi, Alien type thriller with a lot of tense!
Great popcorn movie! Underrated gem with some amazing effects!
