Don't be afraid of the dark. Be afraid of what's in the dark
After crash-landing on a seemingly lifeless planet, pilot Carolyn Fry and the remaining passengers -- including murderer Riddick and policeman William J. Johns -- encounter an army of creatures whose only weakness is light. As night approaches and the aliens emerge, the passengers must rely on Riddick's powerful night vision to lead them through the darkness.

Why does science fiction benefit so wholly from the horror treatment? Because science fiction's greatest risk is sensory overload, and the "less is more" philosophy that so mathematically defines horror also tends to make science fiction great.

Nice movie! Although not as good as the "Alien" trilogy (well, actually it is a quadrology, but the 4th movie is no good!), it has it's moments and Vin Diesel is a good cast for "Riddick" I think.
