Four childhood buddies sharing a mysterious telepathic bond find their annual hunting trip is about to go horribly wrong. Engulfed by unseasonable blizzards, they realise that a deadly alien is in the woods with them, taking a keen interest in their powers. Meanwhile, a special army unit is intent on eradicating all evidence of alien activity.
In the King pantheon, it's just middle order. Kasdan is in his element with the 'tight-knit friends facing off unknown alien terror', Signs-style section of the tale. When it all turns Independence Day meets Carrie, told with the firm grasp of Bambi on ice, you’re left wondering if someone left half the script on the photocopier.
