Jeremy Berg’s alien thriller The Device is a visually striking film about what happens when we fail to consider the danger of playing with the toys of strangers. In this case, the strangers are extraterrestrial beings bent on retaking something they consider theirs. The stakes are higher than just a simple enterovirus or Cold when […]
