The movie is set in southwest Ohio. A woman mentions in a town meeting (at around 49 mins) that "Belmont County's without power". Belmont County is in eastern Ohio. Vicky tells Deputy Lamb on the walkie-talkie that Brook County is out of power (at 43:29 using the spelling of Brook County from the captions). This is a fictitious county in Ohio, however principal shooting for the film was in Weirton, West Virginia, which is on the county line between Brooke County and Hancock County in northernmost West Virginia.

I haven't made any reviews on here for a while, but I felt the urge to do so for this particular film. Guys, this movie is not worth it. It's a bunch of ideas (taken from other movies, such as "Cloverfield", "Goonies" to name a few) put together and not in the best of ways. The scenario is flat, nothing surprising, no real emotions and a bit predictable. It feels like both JJ and Spielberg are toying with us, recycling older movies and just feeding it to us, the audience. Don't spend your cash on it, spend it on something a bit more useful. It might be worth renting it once it comes out on DVD but even then, I'm not sure...
