From the outset, the camera lingers uneasily on nature, from the sea bottom to the vastness of the ocean to the natural environment around the beach house. Randall and Emily have come for a weekend, but discover that Randall’s father has also lent it to an older couple. That evening, Emily’s speaks passionately about astrobiology, with much talk of organisms’ capacity, or lack of it, to adapt to hostile environments. Her words are prophetic of the radical changes occurring outside. Jeff Brown’s complex sci-fi horror, with echoes of War of the Worlds, is a reflection on the fragility of a homocentric world.
