Sheriff Jack Cinder and local militia arrive on scene, and a violent battle ensues, leaving only Jack, his deputy and a wild-eyed redneck as survivors. With a corrupt mayor unwilling to stand up against the Nightbeast’s reign of carnage, it’s up to Jack to evacuate the townsfolk and save the day. Written and directed by Don Dohler (Blood Massacre, The Alien Factor), the film is the first movie credit ever for J.J. Abrams (Star Wars Episodes VII – IX, Star Trek, Super 8, “Lost”) for composing and sound effects.
