in the 90s, a group of friends happened to be making a low budget zombie movie at the train station while witnessing a horrific train crash. their biology teacher who ran his truck into the train, barely survived n warned them to never speak of what they just saw. soon enough, the Air Force arrived, claiming the goods belonged to them. unusual disappearance of electrical appliances started to happen in town. the local police forces tried to find out the truth, only to be further threatened by the Air Force.
we went into the cinema not knowing what to expect other than carrying hopes knowing Steven Spielberg was involved in its production. the film turned out to be extraterrestrial related; however, only in a minimal context. for we felt that the film was mostly about their friendship, their exploration, their puppy love, which just happened to have an extraterrestrial being involved vaguely. one would probably be very disappointed if expecting to see more of the extraterrestrial being. the special effects were absolutely stunning! so breathtaking it sent my heart thumping so fiercely every single time!
