A couple that moved to the country to get away from it all and raise alpacas, finds it all coming to get them. The meteor starts by poisoning the water, then the soil. And then it really gets started!
I like weird and this was more than chillingly creepy enough for me. Cage gets to get his full freak on — and no one can do it better. The special effects are just about perfect, although some of them remind me a bit of Annihilation; eerily colored foliage might need more variance? But all of the performances were spot on.
I’ll recommend this one, but leave the kids — it’ll creep them out. It creeped ME out. There are no post credit scenes, so you can sneak out when they start.
