By all means, it should have been cathartic when sisters Abby (Angely
DiMarco) and Rebecca (Kate Alden) scattered their mum's ashes at their
family's cabin in the woods ... a cabin that has a troubled history since
Rebecca was at one time kidnapped from there by her ex, and when she was
found she was found pregnant (which ended in abortion). But that was years
ago, and now Rebecca wants to make peace with her past and start a new
chapter ... which also includes moving in with Abby and her fiancé Calvin
(David S. Hogan) for some much-needed normalcy after years with her
slightly off aunt Linda (Lorraine Montez). When Abby finds a weird black
sphere at a plane crash site though in the vicinity of the cabin, Rebecca
completely freaks out ...
Days later, Rebecca seems to have settled in
with Abby and Calvin quite nicely ... and then she discovers Calvin has
brought the black sphere with him - which again freaks her out. Now Abby
was merely puzzled about her reaction to the sphere the first time, but
now she has to admit the sphere has some weird characteristics to itself,
Calvin reacts quite weirdly to it ... and what about these weird
nightmares of an alien raping her?
Rebecca hasn't really talked much
about the kidnapping that happened all these years ago, but now she opens
up to Abby, she has actually been abducted by aliens ...
and even though Abby doesn't believe her as such, Rebecca's description of
the aliens resemble those in her nightmares a bit too close to comfort ...
and then Abby finds out she's pregnant - and Calvin's reaction is beyond
The Device is ample proof to how much you
can achieve with even a moderate budget even in the usually
budget-demanding science fiction genre if only you have the right premise
and writers to get the most out of it ... which is not to say the actors
aren't great as well and the diretion isn't tight and suspenseful, because
all that's true as well. In all, The Device is the little alien
abduction movie that could which so many much more expensive movies have
actually failed at, and it's totally worth your while!
