Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a Houston vice cop who's forgotten the rule book. His self-appointed mission is to stop the drugs trade and the number one supplier, Victor Manning (Sherman Howard).

Whilst involved in an undercover operation to entrap Victor Manning, his partner gets killed, and a sinister newcomer enters the scene... Along with F.B.I. agent Lawrence Smith (Brian Benben), the two investigate a spate of mysterious deaths; normal non-junkies dying of massive heroin overdoses and bearing the same horrific puncture marks on the forehead. This, coupled with Caine's own evidence, indicates an alien force is present on the streets of Houston, killing and gathering stocks of a rare drug found only in the brain...

Caine is used to fighting the toughest of criminals, but up to now they've all been human...

DOLPH'S THOUGHTS: (Quote from Dolph's official site)

"It was shot in Houston, Texas in 1989. My character was more of a regular guy. I played a cop, had a girlfriend, a partner, and a real apartment to live in. It wasn't as "larger than life" as I was used to from earlier pictures. It also had a bit of a comic element, which was fun.

The director, Craig Baxley, was an ex-stuntman, actually his whole family are stunt men in Los Angeles. They performed a lot of good stunts, a lot of interesting action in the movie that we perhaps could not have afforded if we hadn't had Craig as a director.

Co-starring with me was a German guy, who was an East German decathlete, he was bigger than I was, blonder than I was, and he played an alien. I had a few fights with him. He was incredibly athletic this guy, he was a bronze medalist at the Olympics. (It was interesting that I, years later ended up coaching an Olympic team from the USA.) This guy was so motivated to do well, that he actually did all the stunts himself, he was so big, so they couldn't find a stunt double for him anyway, so he had no choice. All the falls, all the burns…he did a very good job! They made a set of shoes for him to make him taller. Each shoe must have weighed 20 pounds!"
