Phantoms- 1998, Directed by Joe Chappelle, Starring Peter O'Toole, Rose McGowan, Liev Schreiber, and Ben Affleck
He says-  Sisters are frightened to find a Rocky Mountain town totally deserted, except for a few dead bodies; sheriff Affleck shows up to help, followed by scientist O'Toole.  The answer is a mysterious underground monster from the beginning of time: intelligent, deadly, and amorphus.  Not-bad thriller with good perfromances, astute use of locations, and some suspenseful scenes.  Adapted from his own novel by Dean R. Koontz.  Aka Dean Koontz's Phantoms.  2 and a half stars

I say- Points for being in Colorado and making use of the scenery.  Good movie, and the end ruins it.  The ending blew, and Ben Affleck at his age then, was very hard to believe as a sheriff.    Peter O'Toole was good.  2 stars
