Storyline

A nature field researcher is investigating the strange extinction of small animals and insects in the area, which indicates that something is wrong. His suspicions are soon to be proven right when he meets May, who lives in a cabin in the forest nearby. May says that her house is infested by small creatures that she thinks are mice or rats. When the couple search the house further, they notice that they're not rodents or insects. They are fast evolving lizards that have the appetite for animals and humans, no matter what size their prey are... Written by distant thunder <dthunder@dlc.fi>

Held My Interest
12 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I often get distracted watching films. Aberration held my interest throughout the film. It helps that the plot was simple and the cast totaled only five, excluding the cat. I also like my films to feature an attractive woman in some sort of distress. If one enjoys low budget horror films, this film will be a nice surprise. Critics will probably point out the lizards are not compatible with the arctic like cold and snow depicted in this movie. Oh well, this isn't art.
