A Decent monster movie!
29 April 2003 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

A man who's scientist mother recently died has been told that she created a genetically made baby brother named " Anthony" but it turns out that it's a fully grown mutant monster that murders people, only the man can stop this freak of nature.

Entertaining little flick with good acting and an OK plot, the creature itself looks a little H.R. Giger-esque, recommended if you like " Jurassic Park", " Species", "Resident Evil" and " From Beyond".

5/10.
