Magnet Releasing offers limited theatrical engagements of this TWILIGHT ZONE-type film, with engagements starting in New York, Los Angeles, Denver and Philadelphia in February, then expanding to San Diego, Portland, Seattle and more in March. The story: When a massive power blackout causes a city’s population to vanish, a handful of survivors band together inside a tavern in an effort to survive as darkness approaches. Brad Anderson directs from a script by Anthony Jaswinski. Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, and John Leguizamo head the cast.
Advance word suggests that the film’s atmosphere is impressive, but the plot line feels like a half-hour episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE stretched to feature length.
