Suprisingly Enjoyable
9 June 2002 | by (Warrington, England) – See all my reviews

What appears to be an average B-Movie style develops into an enjoyable delve into Twilight Zone-esque Sci-Fi.

Well crafted ideas, apart from the 'human budgie'(!?), keeps it interesting although the camera action leaves you feeling your watching a TV movie rather than a cinema flick.

Slows down near the end but rejects a cliched finale.

Not bad.
