Storyline

Thriller about a New York ex-cop and an attractive female sheriff who fall in love while investigating a string of mysterious cattle mutilations in a small Colorado town. Urich is great as Reuben Castle, the retired alcoholic police lieutenant out visiting the town with his tomboy daughter. At first he tries to stay out of the case but finds himself involved after the mysterious death of his friend Joe Hiatt, the editor of the local paper whose theories about black helicopters have aroused the ire of cattle baron Ben Morgan. Trying miserably to stay sober, Castle finds himself back in danger and in love, as he and the sheriff work together to get to the bottom of the mystery, encountering incredible danger and resistance from the frightened locals. Written by Unknown

Quotes

Dr. Ross: The test results from the catalog that you sent to me were interesting.
Harriet Purdue: Really! What'd you find?
Dr. Ross: First, the incisions. Laser surgery is what I'd have to guess. And we also found traces of a rare bacterium: Clostridium botulinum.
Harriet Purdue: What?
Dr. Ross: Botulinum. It's a poison, extremely deadly. And uh, this particular strain has been modified by gene splicing.
Harriet Purdue: Where does it come from?
Dr. Ross: Well, I'd never sign my name to this. Uh, Lieutenant Castle did say he wouldn't quote me?
Harriet Purdue: No, I won't.
Dr. Ross: Yes, well, uh, the only ...

good movie
12 December 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

They filmed the part of the missile silos in Longmont. Colo and I got to go there and watch them film the segment where the father (Urich( and his daughter ran down this hallway. It took them all day to do it and in the movie the segment only took a few seconds.

I was pretty disappointed but I did get to shake hands with Jobeth Williams and Robert Urich and he gave me an Oreo cookie for a snack. Of course I kept it. ha ha

I liked the movie just because of this event in my life. I especially liked the part of the effects of the toothbrush. I would like to know where to get a copy of this movie.
