A small Texas town is terrorized by an unidentified monstrous force in this installment of Showtime's Masters of Horror series adapted from an Ambrose Bierce story by writer Richard Christian Matheson, and directed by Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Sheriff Kevin Reddle (Sean Patrick Flanery) may have had a tragic past, but these days he's just looking to find a little peace by starting a family in a quiet Texas town. Any hope for restfulness is soon obliterated, however, when a terrifying entity begins turning brother against brother and parent against child, and an apocalyptic fight for the survival of the human race gets off to a gruesome start. Ted Raimi and Marisa Coughlan co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Posted by: TheCount from Illinois on 10/01/2007This episode opened season 2 of MOH. Throughout the whole 60 min, I found myself wondering what the heck I was actually watching? What was The Damned Thing?
Well, you'll have to wait to the very end to see "it" and let me tell you, it's a bit of a let down. Not what I'd expect from good 'ol Tobe. Actually to me, this was more sci-fi than horror.
A great story, decent acting and cinematography, but for completists only.
