Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The implication that the whole world will end up following this thing the way the children followed the Pied Piper is suitably chilling.

Con: But if it has that effect, why didn’t the scientists notice it sooner? Also, the presumption that UFO conspiracy theories are accurate is annoying.
