    Can anybody tell me what film this is?

    I remember watching a really scary sci-fi film when I was a kid, but can't remember what it was called.

    These are the only bits I can recall from the film -

    - It was set in a jungle or forrest

    - Two men discover a hole which leads to a buried spaceship of somekind?

    - I believe a couple of the aliens get captured, and are experimented on by humans. One of the aliens escape?

    - The escaped alien takes revenge on a woman a puts a drill through her head

    - It watched it on the sci-fi channel or something similar?

    Any help appreciated.

    If it was on "sy-fy" or whatever stupid thing they call themselves now, there's a very good chance it was a made-for-tv channel original. They show a lot of those.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't sound familiar to me. How long ago is "when you were a kid"?

    Invaders from Mars?

    Sounds vaguely like Invaders From Mars. Except the aliens experiment on us.

    I can't remember the exact year, but I watched anywhere from 1997-1999.

    I think it was from the late 80's, early 90's era.

    The 1986 remake of The Invaders from Mars? The original was shown in 1953.

    Hmmm...someone did a remake of Invaders in the last five years, so that seems to rule it out. Oh well....next?

    ETA: Eeeks...my memory is really getting bad. The remake was shot in 1986 so that puts it back in the realm of possibility.
