Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp Coley (Lucas Till), a high school senior, builds a pickup truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed whom he names Creech, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend.
