For the NASA-funded research team stationed at the most desolate reaches of Antarctica, it's another routine day - until the communications satellite picks up a mysterious signal coming from a strange object lodged several meters beneath the ice. Suspecting it may not be from earth, the lead scientist immediately places a call to Julian Rome (James Spader), an old friend formerly employed as a cryptologist for the U.S. Government's SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program.
Catching the next flight to the South Pole, this former "Alien Hunter" is soon led to the unidentified object which is still encased in a large block of ice.

The Day The World Ended
(2001) - Color - Rated R
Starring: Nastassja Kinski, Randy Quaid, Bobby Edner, Harry Groener
The Day The World Ended is a creepy, suspenseful sci-fi thriller starring Randy Quaid (Independence Day, National Lampoon's Vacation series) and the beautiful Nastassja Kinski (Town and Country, Terminal Velocity). It also features terrifying effects by legendary Academy Award®-winning monster-maker Stand Winston (A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Jurassic Park, Aliens).
A woman trying to help a disturbed child discovers his nightmarish fears are all too real in this sci-fi horror opus. Dr. Jennifer Stillman (Nastassja Kinski) is a child psychologist from New York City who takes a job working at an elementary school in a small Nevada community. Jennifer is seen as an unwelcome outsider by most of her neighbors and colleagues, but she does strike up a rapport with Ben (Bobby Edner), a troubled young student. Ben is haunted by fears he has a hard time talking about, and she learns that his mother died under unexplained circumstances -- a matter his father (Randy Quaid) is equally reticent to discuss. As Jennifer struggles to get to the bottom of Ben's traumas, she learns that a monster from another world and a terrible secret the town has been trying to hide are both parts of the puzzle. The Day the World Ended was loosely adapted from Roger Corman's 1956 film of the same name, which was the first monster movie the B-movie icon made for American-International Pictures; this version was created as part of the made-for-cable "Creature Features" series.
