A disturbed young man by the name of October is plagued with nightmarish hallucinations and nightmares, returns to his rural home. He goes back to the old farmhouse, looking for his father (Lance Henriksen) but he's not there. So he starts remembering events--and visits the grave of his adoptive sister. It's suggested via the flashbacks that he has sexually interested in her--and that she met a horrible fate. While walking in the woods he hears a cry and it's his family dog in a coyote trap. He tries to save the dog but his father shows up and shoots it instead. Least to say, this isn't the best way to rekindle their relationship. However, they begin to get along. Something terrible happened years before-- why he left in the first place and why his father is a reclusive alcoholic. They become stranded in the wild, the father is injured, and the son tries to protect them against the THINGS that are trying to kill them. This is one of those movies if you're not sure if this is all happening in their heads or if it's a real, physical threat. It's also quite surreal. Although I'll watch anything that has Henriksen in it I did find this movie a bit tedious after a while.
