I saw this one with no expectations, having read all the fairly harsh IMDb reviews. I liked the creature in it, I thought it was kinda cool even if it did seem like a rip off of bigger budget ones. I'm a sucker for pre cgi creature features really, gimme a rubbery toxic mutant and most of the time I'm happier than a pig in muck. The "Being", was good and its way of getting around and avoiding being seen was pretty cool too, even though it was used as well as it could have been. For me, the under-use of the fairly good ideas was the main problem. If the movie had spent more time with the creature, or had more gore and a higher body count it would have been pretty nifty. As it is, I'm having trouble remembering enough about it to write this review. I liked the ending, thought it was pretty exciting, dug the generic plot (gotta love generic creature feature plotting), and appreciated the little bits of gore it tossed my way (though I wanted more). I also remember an oddly old fashioned, unintentionally humorous feel in places, and a nice cheesy junkyard set opening. I can't comment about the acting cause it didn't make much of an impression, I'm guessing it was about standard for this kinda film, ie reasonable to bad. All in all, this definitely wasn't a stinker, neither was it particularly memorable. I'd recommended it to creature feature completists but those are about the only people likely to appreciate it.
