THE PLOT:

Something strange is going on in a small town, a strange artifact has been unearthed in someone's backyard and now the townspeople are acting strange, they start building strange devices and spend all their free time uncovering the artifact, only a drunk poet knows the truth. The people are under mind control and the artifact is a buried alien craft and there are still living aliens that want out.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Another Steven King monsterpiece, I got to admit it is one of his better ones. The story, the creature effects, the cast. There are some character issues but there are always some character issues with a Steven King movie I don't know why. But there are. But I got to admit for a made for TV monster movie I've seen much worse. You can do much worse with your time then spend it with the TOMMYKNOCKERS. 9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I have to agree with Zedd on the character issues, I can't think of a Steven King movie where we haven't made an issue about at least one character and this is no exception but again I also agree the creature effects are good and the movie is good enough for a theatrical release. So, all and all a pretty good movie. 8 STARS.

...AND FINALLY...
