An elderly janitor hurt in an explosion at a secret army lab run by "The Shop" starts to grow younger. A ruthless operative is sent to cover it up, so the janitor and his wife go on the run with the help of a sympathetic female agent.
Carrie White is a lonely and painfully shy teenage girl with telekinetic powers who is slowly pushed to the edge of insanity by frequent bullying from both her classmates and her domineering, religious mother.
After all communication with a remote top secret U.S. military installation in Antarctica known as Ice Station Erebus is lost , Captain Sam Cage and Major Callie O'Grady are sent to investigate. What they find is Hell incarnate and unless they can somehow find a way to stop it, the world is doomed, literally.
Based on characters created by Stephen King is as good as it gets. Sorry, but this story is too similar to THE THING starring Kurt Russell to get very excited over. I did like the setting of the snow bound radio shack and the sounds of the harsh weather. Missing people return as the undead and the lurking evil is traced back to the half brother of one of the Marine rescue squad landing in the cold arctic.
Faith Ford is adequate in this non-comedic role and is the most talented of the cast that also features Max Perlich, Clayton Rohner, Jennifer O'Dell and Daminan Chapa. If the weather has you trapped in you might appreciate more. Not a total waste of time, but close.
