The title gives it all away. Aliens return to "recall" a few humans who they had previously abducted plus anyone else who is around, like a group of kids in the woods. This group includes Charlie (Jedidiah Goodacre) wallowing in self pity over the death of his girlfriend looking at Annie (Laura Bilgeri) for reboundpity sex. Wesley Snipes lives in a nearby cabin in the woods and knows what is happening as he is an ex-astronaut.

Other than Snipes, the acting wasn't there and Snipes had no character build up, just sad sack Charlie, a depressing individual. The special effects were bad, but were clearly wasted on the production. A characteristic of many sci-fi films is that they lack good characters. In this film, the production relies on the characters to carry the movie.
