Animal Review

25 June 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As far as creature features go, Animal is about as generically crafted as they come, but that might be serviceable enough for some of you (no judgement!). A group of hikers venture into a heavily wooded area and get caught stumbling around after sundown, some type of murderous creature pursues on foot, and a playful excursion turns into a fight for survival. People die, blood is spilled, and a monster roams free – but Chiller’s animalistic horror movie doesn’t do a darn thing to differentiate itself. Instead of finding myself cringing in fear at the very sight of these monsters, my first thought was “Oh look, they copied the Feast monsters!” I’ll admit, Animal is quick and relatively painless, but with a presence so duplicative, is all the running, screaming, and dying actually worthwhile?

Review: A Good Creature is Wasted in Animal

20 June 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

In some respects, Animal is a cut above the usual Chiller fare. It boasts a much better pedigree. It’s executive produced by Drew Barrymore and her Flower Films production company. The creature design and effects are by Gary Tunnicliffe (Scream 4, My Bloody Valentine, Feast). The music is by tomandandy (The Hills Have Eyes, The Strangers). The cast is full of familiar faces including Jeremy Sumpter (Frailty, Excision), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy), and Amaury Nolasco (2 Fast 2 Furious, Transformers). Unfortunately, in just about every other way it’s business as usual.

'Animal' writer-producer Thommy Hutson talks about his creature feature

In the new creature feature Animal two sets of folks — including characters played by Keke Palmer (90210), Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy) and rapper-actress Eve — are hunted by a forest-dwelling beastie with a lot of teeth in its head and very few vegetarian recipes on its mind.

Directed by Brett Simmons (The Monkey’s Paw), the film is now screening in select cinemas and is also available on digital download prior to being screened at a later date on Chiller. Below, Animal producer and cowriter Thommy Hutson talks about the film — and why working on Scooby-Doo »
