* * * out of 4.

Dying woman (Kim Hunter) tells her son (David Allen Brooks) to destroy all of her lab work and that he also had a brother. Brooks takes some of his friends, plus a mysterious woman (Amanda Pays) that claims to be a big fan of his mother's work, to mom's house. There they fall victim to a monster that his mom accidently created and that Rod Steiger is trying to capture for research. Scary film with an intense opening sequence and a good cast, especially Steiger and Pays. It also features some good nasty gross out special effects, especially the watermelon scene and the finale. A very underrated horror film.

Rated R; Graphic Violence and Profanity.
