Going out for a vacation, a woman returns to a family-owned at a cabin in the woods and runs across a scientist chasing an aberrant form of gecko species with a taste for human flesh and try to survive against the creatures.
This was a pretty pleasant and enjoyable creature feature. One of the best features is that there's a really interesting and imposing creature, which is presented a form of aberrant gecko species only to have been inundated with a voracious set of teeth that produce venom which is able to spit at victims as well. The creature's size, which is much bigger than a normal lizard is mixed with plenty of action that showcase this which makes for a really dangerous and unique creature. There's some more greatness from the film itself, as the location is the secluded cabin-in-the-woods which adds a great dimension to the film because of the raging thunderstorm. There's some great atmospheric scenes of them trying to walk around in the dark, as well as the dead trees instead of the usual vegetation give it a wonderfully eerie feel here. There's plenty of action in here as there's a huge amount of interactions here that are plain fun as nearly all of them feature the creature's chases around the cabin forcing them into some fun tactics against the creatures which are pretty chilling and quite fun. There's also the really great finale in the general store, which has plenty of action trying to keep the rapidly approaching creatures contained featuring some fun battle tactics in the aisles which gets some nice suspense as well into a fun, extended sequence that really works. Along with some nice gore and the really nice pacing here, these here manage to make it enjoyable enough to make up for really only one flaw to this one. This one is really only hurt by its really cheesy, rubber-looking creatures that aren't realistic, while other times they're obviously little puppets that move even less like a real creature and ruins the mystique of the creature. It's pretty much the only thing wrong with this one as the positives here are far more appealing and worthwhile.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Language, Brief Nudity and violence against animals.
