Adapted by Richard Christian Matheson (“Dance of the Dead”) from the classic short story by famed author Ambrose Bierce, “The Damned Thing” stars Sean Patrick Flannery (“he Young Indiana Jones Chronicles,” The Boondock Saints) as Kevin Reddle, who, as a boy, watched helplessly as both of his parents fell victim to an inexplicable force and were brutally murdered.
Still haunted by the memories of that night and the invisible force that caused it, Kevin, now a county sheriff in the tiny hamlet of Cloverdale, lives in constant fear that whatever “it” was may one day return to claim even more victims. Suddenly, a fresh wave of violence blossoms into a living nightmare, turning husband against wife, brother against sister and parent against child â and Kevin must confront his tragic past if he is to save the town and his family. Marisa Coughlan (“Boston Legal”), Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs. Jason) and Ted Raimi (The Grudge) co-star.
