A construction crew, putting in a new drainage system, digs of some black goo. One of the workers gets some on him and he hallucinates that tractors are trying to kill him, like KILLDOZER. I only know it was a hallucination because when his coworkers find him he's dead in a completely different way, which looks like he fell on some pipes. Then it's a year later and there's a new hotel built on the site. The black goo starts coming out of the pipes and making the guests go nuts. There's an environmental conference there which Father Douglas Middleton (Kevin Sorbo) is running, so it's all very ironic that this is happening. It turns out that this black goo is ancient and the Ojibwe Indians new about it. In fact, one of the hotel managers, Khale Spence, wears an artifact given to her by her full-blooded grandmother.
Sorbo is always entertaining, though I didn't believe for a moment he was a priest. And the movie is interesting enough to make it watchable. If you liked Larry Cohen's THE STUFF you'll enjoy this.
