A clever re-imagining that's a lot of fun
27 November 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

What better way to pay homage to an old spook film than by incorporating it into the mythos of a new tale? The fact that this film reworks DAY THE WORLD ENDED by having a child conjure the title beast after seeing the original movie is great idea. Incorporating some of that small town paranoia adds just the right amount of all-too-real horror and humanity. All and all, this is a cool flick that rises way above its cheesy name.
