At the thirty minute mark, we see the titular creature emerge!
It did so by breaking into a Power Facility. Along for the trip with our Leads, we get a pair of Security Guards.
Another guard- one is with each Lead- is further away from the creature, so he gets to live a bit longer.
They showed that the Film had stakes...if you were an unnamed Guard. You get to live if you have a Backstory.
The lesson: only work daytime shifts. Nothing happens to Guards during the day, right?
Next time, another day, another Cop. I'm getting accidentally-topical, eh? See you then...
