PG-13 | | Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller
During the summer of 1979, a group of friends witness a train crash and investigate subsequent unexplained events in their small town.
The gasoline station on the outskirts of town is named Kelvin Gasoline. Kelvin was the name of J.J. Abrams' grandfather. Abrams commonly uses this name in his work, such as "Kelvin Inman" from Lost (2004) and the USS Kelvin from Star Trek (2009).
I'm so worried for that boy.
Mr. Kaznyk: Joe's gonna be okay.
Mrs. Kaznyk: She was everything to him.
Mr. Kaznyk: Jack's gonna step up. He's a good man.
Mrs. Kaznyk: But he's never had to be a father before. I don't think he understands Joe.
Seeing the alien's claw marks in the walls of the caverns he created after initially tunneling down in the cemetery's storage building, one may wonder where the huge mountains of displaced dirt went.
There are no opening credits other than the title appearing on the screen.
In the original theatrical version some shot of Jen Kaznyk walk to Donny in the evacuation center are cut from the DVD version
