Cast & Crew
Travis Reeves, a 21-year-old college student, heads for the remote town of New Purgatory where his infamous grandfather, Lloyd Reeves, a former monster movie star, is held in a psychiatric clinic after raving about a behemoth who appeared in one of his old films. Released into Travis' custody, Lloyd tells his disbelieving grandson the shocking tale of a carnivorous creature which is due to wreak havoc just like in his kitschy films. When teenagers start disappearing along a lover's lane, everyone in town -- especially Jill Stanley, a beautiful waitress -- turns to Travis for guidance as he and Lloyd fumble for a way to permanently kill the tentacled monster before it can "escape the movie."
