Storyline

A year after the mysterious disappearance of an 8 year-old girl, we meet her grieving family as they return home from her memorial service in their small town. Later that evening, strange lights appear in the nearby forest and the family is exposed to an inexplicably strange phenomenon that rattles them to the core. The origin of the lights appear to be visitors from another world that seemingly terrorize the family.

User Reviews

Turned off after 20 mins. It just looked stupid.
22 October 2019 | by whitemanfromtowneSee all my reviews

Turned off after twenty minutes and deleted this bad script with bad acting people out of my movie library. It just looked stupid. I agree with the other reviewer who stated the trailer says it all. Laura Fraser was barely ok in Breaking Bad, and she is definitely not good as a lead actress in this.
