Plot: The Gardner family moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard, melts into the earth, and infects both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly colour. To their horror, the family discovers this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches—including them.
Curious how anyone might film HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Turns out… you can’t. At least, not on this showing. Feels interminably long (2 sittings).
I do wonder about Nicolas Cage’s career. Can't remember when he’s been in anything that isn’t hokey…
