Top Movie
28 June 2001 | by (Southend-On-Sea, Essex, England) – See all my reviews

This in my opinion is the most frightening movie i have ever seen, the story of a family at a Thanksgiving Dinner and the hell that follows when they are visited by aliens. The film is shot almost entirely on a home-movie camera which only adds to the realism and the actors play their parts very well, Myself not being the type to scare easily was on the edge of my seat throughout. I gave this movie a 10 Rating as i cannot fault it.
