The new film "Annihilation" hits theaters

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Brent Stevens joins us on 7@4 to talk about the new film "Annihilation." It's about a group of female scientists with various areas of expertise explore the Shimmer, an unusual place where strange flora and fauna exist and the rules of reality go haywire.

Stevens talks about the book and the atmosphere of the film. He says to take the old video game MYST and add some Lovecraft and you have the atmosphere of the book. It's one of the best parts of the movie. There's an overall sense of dread in almost every scene.
