Threshold is a 2003 Sci-Fi Pictures original film adaptation of the 1958 black and white science fiction film It! The Terror from Beyond Space[citation needed] (directed by Edward L. Cahn). The film stars Nicholas Lea (The X-Files' Alex Krycek), Jamie Luner (Melrose Place's Lexi Sterling) and Steve Bacic (Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda). Other notable cast members include Teryl Rothery, television mogul Stephen J. Cannell (as Pacheco Laval) and Gloria Slade.

Plot[edit]

The crew of the space shuttle Oklahoma comes back to Earth, one of its crew members having been struck in the arm by a tiny meteor, which evidently contains alien lifeforms. This alien life parasitizes its human hosts to evolve into rapidly proliferating insect-like creatures. The Oklahoma's chief medical officer (Lea) works to stop the spread of the infestation before it reaches the "threshold" population, at which humanity will be effectively unable to contain it and the alien life will take over.
