This could be your typical teenagers become super heros movie, but it's not.  This film goes from what you might expect to something much darker.  And that's what I liked about it.  It wasn't what I expected.

Three teenagers come across a crater, go inside, have some sort of accident, and come out okay.  Then, they start to realize that they aren't the same, that they have some sort of super power.  Each one copes with these new powers differently, but they have to stick together because they can't tell anyone else.

Another interesting aspect of this film is that it's made to seem like its all shot on home video.  One of the characters carries a video camera around with him everywhere before they develop their powers and continues to document after they discover them.

We didn't set out intending to see this film, but I'm glad we decided to.  I'm not always one to watch your typical super hero films, so this was an interesting twist on a common movie theme.
