Incestuous mother and son shapeshifters Brian Krause and Alice Krige move to a new town with seemingly naive Madchen Amick as their next intended meal.

Sick, unfunny, and horrendously over-acted (Krige especially is hard to watch and she and Amick are so soft-spoken it becomes a chore to sit through), the film is directed with all the subtlety of a sledge-hammer by Mick Garris.

It wants to be an outrageous horror flick set in a s-ish small town locale, but instead it is merely self-consciously off-putting and depraved simply for the hell of it.

Opening scene set in Bodega Bay is an enjoyable homage to Hitchcock's overrated 'The Birds', but the whole thing just repeats itself over and over with increasingly bizarre behavior from characters we don't care one iota about. I would not wish this ordeal on anyone, especially cat lovers.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Stephen King wrote the screenplay himself, and hopefully will not do such a stupid thing again (Didn't he learn after 'Maximum Overdrive'?). This horrid little tale will have you wanting to take a shower afterwards, ala King's 'Graveyard Shift'.
