strange movie about isolated people, an undefinable threat, and a gov't science project; OK, but odd
19 February 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Two men are in the woods fleeing something. They're in the mountains, and can't see any of the towns they think they should be able to see. They find an isolated cabin and a woman, Marcie, invites them in. They can't really describe what they were fleeing - something that tore up their camp, a tall glowing red light that covers the trees and sky accompanied by a strange sound.

One of the men, Gus, occasionally sees a sort of computer graphic of a black square in a tunnel of light, or something like that. When he sleeps, he dreams in green and white of a child in a cemetery with a priest and an older man. His dream switches to blue and white, then natural colors and stills of himself, his friend, and Marcie appear.

They try to find a restaurant Marcie said was nearby, but come across a man in a car with a flat tire. He was trying to land his Cessna nearby, then came across the abandoned car. He's in ill health, and they go back and get Marcie, then proceed to the restaurant which is "Closed Permanently." They find the Cessna, and Gus takes off on his own Marcie, the car, and the dead man disappear.

Gus gets into some trouble with the plane, and after he lands he finds a short pyramid near a fence. He initially can't enter, but then is able to go into an underground series of white halls with red doors. People and things start appearing and disappearing more often, and he's told something (not much) about Project Touchstone. From there it didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. At one point, there's a large disembodied glowing green face with red eyes that seemed awfully familiar, yet from where I don't recall.

For its low budget and small cast, they did achieve something interesting, but ultimately I don't know what to make of it.
