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.

This movie was greatly done. A new monster movie that doesn't dissapoint. Shea Whigham was excellent. He played his part to high standards, he played a believeable character.

This original, creepy, unnerving horror film gives that fresh sense of nameless dread which has been lost in many modern horror films.
Set in a gas station where a kidnapped couple out on their anniversary are terrorized, along with their captors, by a strange, parasitic creature which infects you, grows in you and manifests in the form of spikes and takes over your body. Somewhat zombie-like, yes? This is even worse. No matter what you do, if you blast its arms, head and legs off, it will keep coming at you. 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.
