Phantoms (1998)

This is a solid movie. Jennifer Paige (Joanna Going) feels that her younger sister Lisa needs a vacation, so she brings her to the small resort town of Snowfield, Colorado. Upon arrival, the town seems to be more deserted than usual and they find two dead bodies. Sheriff Bryce Hammond (Affleck) and his deputies come to investigate and it seems like the town is haunted. Professor Flyte, a conspiracy theory writer, is brought it when his name is found inside of a hotel room. The real culprit is an ancient creature with the ability to acquire the memories of anything it consumes.

The story comes from the 1983 novel written by Dean Koontz. The film has similarities to The Thing (1982) and The Blob (1988).
