Storyline

With the medical breakthrough of a metal-based synthetic skin called "bio-ferron" the prospect for pioneering surgeries for burn victims and cancer patients seems set to occur but for the warped head scientist in charge...it's a opportunist chance to reactivate a long forgotten classified project...that has been left frozen in a set of cryogenic chambers deep beneath the bowels of government laboratory. Convincing the other in the research team to start work on putting this living 'metal' skin on corpses, he now has the perfect test patients waiting on ice for them to work on. But there was a reason three of these stiffs in particular where left to chill. Due to an experiment gone bad these three only look human on the outside and none of them are as dead as everyone believes they are. Written by suspicous

Goofs

When Dr. De Carlo is arguing with Miller about the safety of using Butler as a test subject he state it's perfectly safe because the body came from the cryonics lab in Langley and germ warfare research is done on Plum Island in New York. Such research did take place there in the 50's the scope was limited to weapons targeting animal and livestock and ended in 1969 when Presdent Nixon banned biological weapon research. See more »

A pleasent surprise
24 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit I wasn't expecting much when I first rented this movie, but the concept of a metal covered werewolf is a unique twist on an old story. Also the effects were very good. But if your not into werewolf movies then you may not like Metalbeast.

I GIVE IT (7 STARS) ******* ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)

+ CONCEPT (I always give kudos to an original or a new twist on an old concept)

+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The Metalbeast was just plan cool)

+ ATMOSPHERE (It has spooky atmosphere with substance)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

  • SLOW (It has several places of slow peroids while they build up suspense,


a little too long at times)

And Finally:

  • FAN BASED (If you are not a fan of horror or werewolf movies then steer


clear of PROJECT: METALBEAST)
