Joe Lamb misses his mother who died on an accident at the factory she was working. His father Jack who is the Deputy at a small town near Ohio, thinks that Louis, his wife co-worker is responsible for her death. Joe and his pals are planning to complete the direction of a b movie during the summer of 1979, as they are great fans. So Joe is going to meet there Alice, Louis's daughter and there is going to be something among them. As they shoot a scene near a train station, they witness an incredible train crash. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and our little heroes are trying to explain them. Army appears and controls everything. And secrets well kept for years are responsible for this chaos. Quite cheesy film, with a sparkle of suspense, it began well but in the end it was so predictable. It reminded me of the 'E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial' in a different way as also Steven Spielberg participates at the production of this flick.
