Summary:In an homage to various films such as the Goonies, Stand By Me, Cloverfield, E.T. and other films, a group of young friends filming a zombie movie witness an unusual train crash that stirs the attention of their small Ohio town. But when the truth regarding the train crash comes out and strange things start happening, the kids realize that there’s an alien in their town that just wants to go home.
My review: This was a great movie, like the movies that I saw during the 80’s. A very good movie.
My recommendation: to anyone who can recall the 80’s films such as E.T., Stand By Me, and the Goonies.
My rating: **** 1/2
