'Effective space alien horror with a Soviet-era twist, Sputnik proves there are still some scary good
sci-fi thrillers left in the galaxy'
-- Rotten Tomatoes
'Strong performances, strikingly spare production design and somber cinematography convey a sense of something important going on. That's no small achievement in what proves to be a creature feature with flair.'
-- Wall Street Journal
'The performances and characterizations add heft, and the very Russian vibe of soulful heaviness sets it apart from its American cousins.'
The lone survivor of an enigmatic spaceship incident hasn’t returned back home alone—hiding inside his body is a dangerous creature. His only hope: a doctor who’s ready to do whatever it takes to save her patient.
