Meg Tilly , Hume Cronyn
It looked like every other small American town: a quiet, unremarkable backwater. But when an earthquake near the small farming community of Sutcliffe cracks open a subterranean storage chamber, a mysterious substance leaks out. Soon, everyone is acting strangely out of character. They are playful, violent, mischievious and self-destructive. Then they start to kill each other.
Director Graham Baker
