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

Interesting enough...
8 June 2015 | by birdtoes-946-87978See all my reviews

Well, I enjoyed it. It felt a bit like the miniseries "Taken" and also somewhat like "The 4400." Did I think it was as wonderful as I thought "Taken" and "The 4400" were? No - but it kept my interest. The acting was competent, the visuals were good, the soundtrack was appropriate and enhanced the mood. Actually, the story isn't a new one. It's an expansion of an old Twilight Zone episode - Drill and all, and, yup, there was a little girl named Minx. I don't remember the name of that episode, but it was a good one. :) I tried looking it up online so I could include a link, but couldn't find it. I'm surprised no one else has noticed this - or maybe I'm just plain old.
