Hhhhmmm.......
14 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

My rating: ** stars out of ****.

A group of scientist are celebrating because of a pile of goo they created--LIVING goo that can live on mars and send back data (never knew jello could live in space--NASA,send jello to mars!) anyways, it back-fires and creates some sort of amphibian-like alien monster. A cheesy and strangely non-horrorifying "horror" film, but really not terrible. Acting ranges from above-average to flat, the script is (generally) lacking, but the plot is fairly innovative (think "species 2") and the musical sore is pretty damn solid, it's actually too good for this type of film.
