Another of King's creepy tales, adapted for TV. Bobbi (Helgenberger) and Gard (Smits) live in the small town of Haven, Maine (actually filmed on New Zealand's North Island). She's an aspiring writer; he's a fading poet with a drinking problem and a metal plate in his head (this is important). Walking in the woods, Bobbi stumbles over a long-buried spaceship which begins to take possession of the townspeople--their eyes shine green, their teeth fall out, and they act out their (often violent) fantasies--all but Gard. The whole thing's more silly than scary. The title comes from an old children's rhyme.
