An ex-cop who's a writer now, gets brought back on the job after a string of weird murders with the killer leaving a web like substance Is it human or not?
Really this is nothing but cheap (and that's very cheap) z-grade trash, but still 'fairly' amusing well that's if you're in the right frame of mood. This is no more than a "Alien" rip-off, but set on earth. There are certain shots that resembled some of those from "Alien" and as well the creature looks very similar too.
The story is extra ordinary. The usual scientific creation that's on the loose killing victims and an ex-cop who's the only one that can stop it. So don't expect anything special or original. Sometimes the pacing is a bit tedious; like a slasher film.
The acting is not that bad from a bunch of nobodies... with a pretty charming and gawky heroine. Although there is one or two annoying characters which you have to deal with. Added to the film's script is some sharp humour and witty one-liners, especially from the geeky lead. A very gritty and grim atmosphere is found throughout the picture, with a lot of the film taking place in dark and dim lighting. While the special effects are hilariously shoddy and cheap, which gives it a sort of charm... well I think so.
I found this more enjoyable than the glossy, but bland "Ghost Ship (2002)" I watched before it.
This film is unoriginal, campy and cheap... but I found this schlock watchable and rather fun.
