A sort-of monster/infection movie hybrid. It's the usual concept of a few people trapped in one location by a deadly creature, but it's done so with skill and much creative ingenuity. The 'creature', in particular, is quite unique. It's entertaining, tense and memorable.

The thing itself has lived in the Oklahoma or Maryland Woods (I can't quite remember) for untold years, undistubed by mankind, until now.
This film gives that primal feeling of unknown horror, of now knowing what it is and more importantly, how to kill it.
