“Reports of strange deaths begin to come in from cities around the world.

[It soon becomes clear] that the deaths have been caused by the release of a toxin by surrounding plant life in an evolutionary last-ditch attempt to protect themselves from the predator that endangers them the most.” — from a 1.7.07 online script review by Rich Drees.
Coming Soon put up this poster exclusively last week. The slogan: “We’ve Sensed It. We’ve Seen the Signs. Now…it’s Happening.”
