It seems to be the typical late night at Les (Felissa Rose) and Shiloh's (Rachel Amanda Bryant) diner in the middle of nowhere, with the same handful of drunks telling the same stories and having the same harmless arguments, and heck, even the round of pool some of them are playing seems exactly the same like every night - until everything is interrupted by gunshots outside, and when Les goes investigating, she's shot dead point blank. And soon after that a gang of armed drug addicts - Mac (Kevin Caliber), no bullshit Gail (Holly Rockwell), psycho Frenzy (Ashley Undercuffler), her disquietingly quiet girlfriend Lo (Likun Jing) and young Will (Xavier Roe) storm the place and hold everyone at gunpoint - but at the same time insist they haven't shot Les. And soon enough their claim is confirmed even, as an armed and masked mob surrounds the place and offers the diner's personnel and patrons free passage if they hand over "the monster". A fair offer made slightly difficult by the fact that the intruders won't let them go through with the deal - quite apart from the fact that nobody knows who "the monster" really is. So while those on the outside duly wait their turn, a game of minds erupts on the inside between residents and intruders. But as neither side plays fair or even is united among themselves, this only leads to utter and dangerous chaos - and then the monster rears its ugly head ...

Genre mainstay and co-screenwriter Gregory Blair plays one of the diner's patrons.


Now in some ways, this film feels like two movies roled into one, as for the longest time it seems like a suspense-based mystery that gives its info away only by the by and this time mounts tension until tension until the whole thing's ready to burst - and when it does it becomes a gore-soaked creature feature for the third act. What's rather remarkable is that the film actually works as both, as the mystery of the piece if cleverly constructed and never gives away more than it absolutely must to keep one guessing throughout, while the finale leaves nothing to be desired in terms of blood and guts, with the creature looking grotesque to boot - and the sum of all of this will probably make many a genre fan very happy.
