Film details

Cast & Credits


Horror/Science fiction. An extra-terrestrial seductress preys on men in Scotland by driving round the streets in a van, asking lone men for directions and then offering them a lift. She then takes them to a remote, run-down house where she traps them in a strange black substance from which there is no escape. The alien, though able to flirt, is at a loss with normal human interaction and frequently puzzles people, and becomes vulnerable, with her unusual behaviour (such as going out without a coat in bad weather) and her long silences.
