"High in the Appalachian Mountains and under a full moon, a timeless evil rises. An awakened predator whose savagery and ferocity are matched only by its insatiable appetite. Consumed by its legendary bloodlust, the creature begins the hunt for its oldest and most dangerous prey: Man. Special Agent Jack Driscoll has seen this before. The beast is his obsession and his nightmare. Now, he and his new partner must race against the rising moon to save a group of unsuspecting campers. Outmatched and unarmed, the frightened group must rally themselves to survive the night. As their numbers dwindle and their strength wanes, the group scrambles to answer the only question that will save their lives; how do you kill the unkillable?" - IMDB plot summary for The Feeding
The "minds and hearts of the people" began to change in Hanover County Virginia on December 1, 1763. It was at the old Hanover County Courthouse when an obscure country lawyer named Patrick Henry challenged the authority of the Church of England, and the King of England. In the "Parsons' Cause" as Henry's case became known, Patrick Henry thundered against the King's disavowal of a law passed by the Virginia House of Burgesses. In addition to thrusting Patrick Henry into the forefront of the Colonial legal and political circles, the Parsons' Cause established part of the foundation of the coming American Revolution.
