After a misshalf in a laboratory, a engineer is bitten by a mutant amphibian creature and slowly mutates into a giant lizard monster and proceeds to devour fellow lab workers in a high-tech laboratory facility. Despite hammy acting, and some inane dialogue and logic laps, "Metamorphosis: The Alien Facotr" comes across as a solid, adequate thriller sporting some solid scares and tention with some unique special effects.
The production values and sets are elaborate and convincing, not the usual water-dripping and darkly-light alien-rip-off sets we see in these types of b-rate films. In addition to nice production values, the Takakjian director builds tention and some solid scares time to time. This film also breaks many rules of b-movies. Characters you expect to live die gory deaths, vice versa, and the ending ain't what you'd expect.
But quite possible the best element in this film are the special effects. The creatures look unique, and the amount of detail put into the monsters are astounding--The creatures can blink, they can breathe realisticly, muscles contract when they move, etc. and the F/X alone make this film worth watching. The special effects are just amazing, plain and simple.
