Highly entertaining little monster flick.
26 October 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Aberration" is often trashed by horror fans,but this film is certainly well-made and fairly entertaining.Pamela Gidley plays a vacationing young girl who comes back to the cabin of her childhood.Unfortunately she begins to hear strange noises throughout the house and her cat is killed.A wandering research scientist working the area meets up with her and they both fight with mutant geckos."Aberration" is clearly not as bad as it's reputed to be.There is a lot of action and plenty of gore,so I wasn't disappointed.The monsters are cheesy looking,but generally they are convincing enough.So if you enjoy watching low-budget horror films,give this one a look.7 out of 10.
