What in the hell just happened! I don't Understand!Am I dumb?
25 April 2002 | by (Waterford,Michigan) – See all my reviews

The story premise for the movie actually begins pretty good. It is suspenseful and intriguing through most of the movie. I enjoyed it. The movie was creepy. Then, the end came. The mysterious disappearances of the towns people, visitors and others, the 1948 bomb test, etc. It all came to an abrupt end. It's as if the writers couldn't think of anymore so they sliced on an ending to make it fit in two hours. After all of the suspense and spookiness I can only ask what in the hell just happened? Were they zombies? Bodysnatched? Possessed? What was the thing in the town? Why did everybody say they never heard of Weaver? None of these things were asked or even answered. The first hour and three quarters were excellent. The last five minutes, well I still can't figure it out. Some kind of conclusion would have been nice. I guess I am just too stupid to get it. Either that or the writers don't understand how to end thew basics of writing 101. Hey Hollywood I got a story for you and it sure ends better than this did!
