Ever been chased by a crystal? Rocks from a meteor which grow when in contact with water threaten a sleepy Southwestern desert community.
Rotten Tomatoes says: While studying meteor showers in the American Southwest, geologist Dave Miller (Grant Williams) finds some rather queer crystals. The crystals grow huge after a rainstorm, and begin absorbing silicone from humans, turning them into monsters. Miller tries to save the small town, whose residents include a schoolteacher (Lola Albright) and her children.
