It's all over the news, major cities across the world are under some kind of terrorist attack, where previously innocent citizens suddenly go on killing sprees - and it seems this is a concerted effort even. Of course, pretty much every terrorist organisation worldwide claims responsibility, but this is just too big for any one organisation. Knowing it's not safe in the city, Alison (Catherine Taber), her boyfriend, ex-soldier Derek (Anbthony Nguyen) and their pregnant friend Jessi (Megan Hayes) make it out of the city, but are greeted by a hail of bullets at their first stop to pick up their friend Harry (Robert Pralgo), an ex-marine with a collection of weapons that should come in handy, and at their destination, a trailer deep in the woods owned by Alison's family, Harry is shot dead at point blank range ... by Hannah (Hannah Fierman), girlfriend of Alison's brother Kevin (Alex Zuko), who's so frightened by the whole situation she would have shot at pretty much anything that moved - a mere understanding of course, but that said, even if the situation as such forces Alison and Kevin to join forces, there relationship is mighty strained. And of course, forced into a trailer with one another only opens old wounds, to the effect that eventually Kevin and Hannah leave the trailer to fend for themselves ... and only hours later Kevin returns, covered in blood, with Hannah missing. It's getting creepier when he claims Hannah has never really existed. He also talks about weird lights, which sounds like the ramblings of a lunatics - until all the others experience the weird lights as well. Then their car is sabotaged, and later they find Jessi, obviously murdered, and Kevin and Derek of course suspect one another. Soon it becomes clear that the trailer's no longer all that safe, as whoever the enemy is apparently closes in on our heroes, so they decide to take a stroll through the woods to an army pick-up point. But with potential rescue within reach, things really come to a head ...

 

A pretty cool end-of-the-world movie that of course on the surface doesn't add little new to the genre, and even strips whatever has hit humanity of a proper explanation - but that's really of minor importance as the film works much more as a suspense-driven character piece than anything else. And the characters, their arcs and their relations to one another are at least as compelling as the action in this movie, with the direction giving the film's strong cast plenty of space to breathe. And the result is a rather pulse-pounding genre piece indeed.
