A 2015 horror film directed by Mickey Keating. After their mentally unstable army vet brother Martin leaves them a disturbing voicemail, claiming that he finally has proof of his claims, estranged siblings Ed and Lyla reunite to bring their brother home.

When they arrive,they find out that Martin is far worse than they could have imagined, ranting and raving about how he has captured something he calls a “Pod” and locked it up in his basement. But he has a history of psychotic behavior, so clearly it's all in his head, right?

Right?

!!This film contains examples of:
*AgentScully: Ed refuses to indulge his brother’s claims [[spoiler: until he sees the pod himself.]] Lyla, however, [[AgentMulder seems far more inclined to believe Martin.]]
*AlienInvasion: [[spoiler: Although not referred to as such at any point in the film, this seems to be implied by the fact that the pod ‘isn’t’ a government experiment, and that the agent hunting it makes reference to a “colony.”]]
*AntagonistTitle
*FunctionalAddict: Lyla seems to be somewhere between this and a HardDrinkingPartyGirl.
*GenreShift: For the first two thirds of the movie, it seems like it’s going to be a thriller in which Ed and Lyla have to survive their deranged brother, [[spoiler: until Martin slices his throat open and Ed goes down to the basement and finds out there really is a monster.]]
*KillEmAll: [[spoiler: No one survives, except the pod.]]
*TheMenInBlack: Smith fills the part pretty well, attire aside.
*ProperlyParanoid: [[spoiler: He may still be mentally unsound, but Martin was right about the monsters existing. He just got a few details wrong.]]
*SuperSoldier: Martin believes that the titular “pod” is the result of a military experiment to create the ultimate killing machine. [[spoiler: He’s pretty far off-base on that one.]]
