Sure enough, misfortune strikes the small town of Prospect, Oregon when a local stargazing adventurer mysteriously disappears while backpacking in the wilderness on a quest to see the comet. Joseph, his only son, is suddenly left without a family or a clue to the fate of his father.

Though he tries to warn the community, his words fall on deaf ears.

Where to start...?
12 January 2011 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This film is awful. Truly awful. And I do not wish to put the filmmaker down because I attend graduate film and know how hard a feature is to make... but I, like most people, use this site to determine whether I should watch a film or not. And I feel this film has been dubiously inflated in review by those involved and/or friends of...

The direction just screams of amateur undergrad film school-like execution. The lighting is non-existent. That might be—other than the acting—my greatest criticism: lighting! Even though it looks to be shot on SD, I've seen DVX footage shot to look perfectly fine. This doesn't come close. The story is stale, the acting is almost satirical of itself, and the direction is bland...

So, I applaud the effort of making a feature... but this is truly the worst film I've seen in recollection. Truly.
