What it is: Who?

Several campers hide out in their cabin in the woods when something bizarre starts happening throughout the world.

The last twenty minutes of this movie involves a long walk (or should I say incessant wandering) through snow-filled woods. The experience left me feeling tired, bored, cold, slightly nauseated and unfocused and uncertain. And, all in all, that’s an apt metaphor for the whole movie. It reminded me a little of THE DAY MARS INVADED EARTH in the sense that you’re going to get precious little in the way of invasion thrills if you watch this one. Oh, it establishes its premise early on, but then spends the rest of its length meandering around until it reaches its ending, where it degenerates into mystic impenetrability. Even for Bill Rebane this is a bad movie; I found it almost completely devoid of entertainment value. Not recommended on any level.
