The Outer Limits: Sandkings ★★★ Sandkings 1995

Cable revival of the ‘60s sci-fi series is creepier than ever with this tale of loony scientist Simon Kress (Bridges). He discovers tiny alien eggs while doing an analysis of Martian soil samples and decides to take his research home with him when the government cuts off funding. Big mistake—the critters he successfully hatches in his barn are mean and hungry. Features both dad Lloyd and Beau's 10-year-old son, Dylan, in roles. 93m/C VHS . Beau Bridges, Lloyd Bridges, Helen Shaver, Dylan Bridges, Kim Coates; D: Stuart Gillard; W: Melinda M. Snodgrass. CABLE
