Dramatic Sci-Fi Thriller: Two 1950s era teenagers try to get to the bottom of weird things happening one night in their small New Mexico town.

It's the 1950s and teenage deejay Everett Sloan (JAKE HOROWITZ) is sort of the local celebrity in the small New Mexico town of Cayuga. He can and does charm everyone, including high school student Fay Crocker (SIERRA McCORMICK) who works nights operating the local phone switchboard. On this particular evening, one line she answers features nothing but odd sounds, while another is garbled with a woman saying something about heading into her cellar. Perplexed but a bit concerned, she calls Everett to ask for his opinion and he decides to play the odd sounds on-air in hopes that someone might be able to say what they are.

It's not long before Billy (voice of BRUCE DAVIS) calls in from out of town, saying he heard them years ago while performing top-secret work for the U.S. government. His disclosure eventually leads the two teens to neighbor Mabel Blanche (GAIL CRONAUER) who tells them she can add to Billy's story, based on past events in her life. Not sure if either is credible witnesses but realizing something strange is happening that night, Fay and Everett try to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Those into sci-fi style films set in the past might show some interest.
For brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
