Not having read the book, I assume this TV movie veered away from its source material, at least in part, and probably due to a minuscule budget. At least that's the impression I get from reading some of the posts here. A long-buried spaceship begins to have an alarming effect on the residents of a small town in Maine. Basically, it turns them into zombies, although they think they are evolving onto a higher plane of existence. There are some creepy moments involving the newly unearthed ship, but the movie is done in by incredibly cheap effects and some awful casting, among the worst being Jimmy Smits as an alcoholic poet and Traci Lords as a perpetually horny postal worker (had her frequent love scenes been handled more realistically, instead of childishly, this movie might have been a lot more interesting). I have watched this lengthy adaptation several times over the years, and I sometimes wonder if it was intended as a comedy. Probably not, but it definitely has its share of laugh-out-loud moments.
