Storyline

When children across Washington, D.C., all start talking with the same imaginary friend named Drill, who persuades them to play dangerous games, the FBI calls in child specialist Claire Bennigan - whose deaf son has been speaking to Drill, unbeknownst to her - to investigate. Meanwhile, the defense department sends Wes Lawrence to the Sahara Desert, where he encounters a strange geological phenomenon. As puzzle pieces come together, creating a frightening picture, humanity must wage a battle against unseen forces if it hopes to survive. Written by Soumik Ghosh

I like it
20 August 2015 | by blahblahblah91See all my reviews

I'm not sure where people are getting Poltergeist meets Close Encounters Of The Third Kind meets Children Of The Corn, clearly they have not actually seen those movies. I was also confused by the complaint too many TV shows are serious, did the commercials for it make it look like it would be a comedy? I like the TV show, it's not the typical show, maybe that's why some don't care for it-some are a bit harsh imo-The point is to not know who is going after the children right off the bat, the point is to wonder who it is, and wait to find out! Lily is fantastic, Abby Ryder Fortson is great, the rest of kids are believable and adorable and I'm glad to have something different to watch this summer :) Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I suggest checking it out for yourself :)
