Our Review:
We had wanted to see this movie when it was released in the theaters, but because we missed it we were looking forward to finally see it on DVD. After watching it, we thought that the story line was interesting and we also thought that the casting was great. The child actors did an excellent job in portraying their parts. In the beginning of the movie, there was a train crashed. The military arrived at the small town where the train accident occurred for the clean up. It turned out that the train crash was purposefully carried out by a former scientist who became a school teacher. Over a short span of time, people went missing and weird things began to happen at this little town. An alien had escaped because of the train crash. In the end, the alien was able to put its space craft together and leave Earth. This was definitely an entertaining movie worth watching.
