1 star is generous
Overall I liked the movie for what it is - and had many good parts,
But the ending was weak.
Two girls driving off at the end was not very satisfying.
More info on the town - and what happened to the creature.
Would have liked to know more about sheriff instead of a bunch of loud flashbacks ref. her scandal.
Uneven volume - had to turn up the remote to hear a lot of the dialogue but every time something bad happened it would blare overly loud.
The cast made up for some of the weak points because they tried hard to make it interesting.
Also - the first exploding tanker wreck was unrealistic for how an accident would have been handled even in small town USA.
It was reason no one else could leave - hokey plot device.
But I enjoyed (and recommend) the movie because I like those kind of flicks.
