Edward G. Robinson,
On a red eye flight to Boston from LA 10 people wake up to a shock. All the passengers and crew have vanished. When they try to contact the ground they make no connections. They land the plane only to discover that things haven't changed. But its like the world is dead. No one is there, the air is still, sound doesn't echo, the food is tasteless. And a distant sound is heard coming closer. A race of monstrous beings bent on their destruction is heading for them, eating everything in sight. Written by
In a scene, one of the characters mentions it's impossible to go back in time, and for example stop the Kennedy assassination. This is the main topic for one of Stephen King's more recent novels, "11.22.63" See more »

I enjoyed this despite some flaws. The acting is actually quite good. The story is engaging and interesting. I think it fulfills that childhood-like fantasy-'what would you do if you woke up and everyone had disappeared?' We see that here and it is well done.
There are some things that bothered me. True, when the plane is flying through the night sky you can see some blue screen around the edges of the plane and perhaps the stars don't appear too realistic. Also, I agree with one other member here regarding the blind girl. She does indeed have a habit of looking right at another actor while reciting her lines. She even runs into the arms of Patricia Wettig with perfect accuracy which is funny. I agree that her acting could have been better. Also, the Langoliers are animated and appear like walnuts opened up with chrome plated, shark-like teeth.
Despite the small production issues though I did enjoy this.
