Aliens in the heartland
19 December 2001 | by (Haderslev, Denmark) – See all my reviews

or would "Close Encounters of the Second Kind" in the "Field of Dreams" between the "Children of the Corn" and "The Monolith Monsters" be a more appropriate title? I watched this one on a German TV channel last night without hoping for much even with Corbin Bernsen in it, but "Riddler's Moon" turned out to be a nice little sci-fi fantasy with believable and sympathetic characters in rural surroundings and one not so sympathetic one. It used familiar elements from several older films, mixed them a little differently and the result was this little winner.
