Not as bad as people said it was.
23 December 2002 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

I rented this the other day, and I must say, this is not as bad as people said it was. What I found good about this movie was the designs for the creatures. It is obvious that a lot of work and creativity went into them. Not every effect works, but the ones that did came out quite nice looking. Another good thing about this film was Joel Goldsmith's scary and atmospheric music score.

So, despite the obvious low-budget, this was not that bad.

This is not a great movie, but not bad. worth a look.
