Insurance agent Sam Neill investigates the disappearance of a
best-selling horror novelist in a small town, but soon experiences nightmarish visions and discovers that he can't seem to escape beyond the town borders.
It soon emerges that those who have read the novelists books
begin to lose their sanity.
Twilight Zone stuff, far from director John Carpenter's best
works, although there are some good visual effects and some effectively creepy moments, though it's not especially memorable.
