Storyline

Hanklin Purvis enjoys the outdoors, and he loves to hunt. He and his wife, Dorothy, live on a farm in the rural mid-west. For some reason, during the season before autumn, things start happening. The first victims are family pets, then wild animals. But it's not until people are injured that the police get involved. The attacker is not human, that's for sure and it needs to be stopped. Then they discover that the wounds have a deadly bacteria and the clock is ticking for those infected. Enter Hanklin's neighbor, Francis Wellman, a Native American who believes she has discovered an ancient antidote. And will they ever find the perpetrator of these horrifying attacks? They do.

I liked this movie - - until the non-ending
27 November 2012 | by (Subcrust Base 955 - Venus) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed all of this movie but expected some kind of resolution, which never transpired. The story is about a weird creature being sighted in a rural area of Michigan. Part of the story is about a guy named Hank Purvis installing a night vision game camera in an area he hunts. You would expect footage from this camera to become part of the story, but it never happens. We never see anything recorded by the game camera. In fact, the only time we see the creature is inside five minutes from the end of the movie, reflected in a car window. We never find out what happens to the young man who was bitten. This is simply a story without an ending and it is absurd to think anyone was thinking "sequel." Worth a look, especially for Stacie Hadgikosti as the sheriff's deputy -- wow! Slap the cuffs on, officer!
