In My Own Words:
I love 1980s horror movies. Zombie movies are my favorite. I am ex-Navy and currently work in the nuclear field.

Writing, genealogy, religion origins, E-Bay, head games.

This is also known as "White Collar Hooligan 3."

They go on a scavenger hunt tailed by the US government. The device can control electronics and make metal move around at will, except anything the US government uses to capture and dissect it.

The film takes place in Nevada. They were able to demonstrate hand held film supposedly made by a thirteen year old is as bad as one made by a twenty something. The alien device was not exciting… Read more
