70 years after a U.S. warship vanished during a top-secret cloaking experiment, its sudden reappearance on a Pennsylvania runway sparks a global panic in this remake of the 1984 science fiction classic. Back in 1943, the U.S. government was carrying out a clandestine exercise in cloaking when the USS Eldridge disappeared into thin air. Seven decades later, the Navy destroyer reappears momentarily. As the sole surviving crewmember flees for safety, a lawman boards the ship and becomes caught in the mysterious time/space rift. Meanwhile, scientists and military personnel race to determine where the shill will appear next. Michael Paré, Nicholas Lea, and Malcolm McDowell star.
