rear window with giant cockroaches, 17 October 2003
Author: bmovieboy from Hollywood, CA

It does start off slow but well acted, directed, written by newcomer J.T. Petty. However the last climactic scenes shows how well placed shots, edits, lighting and sound can do for a low budget monster flick. The CG and puppetry were well balanced, hiding weaknesses, using their strengths. Very good payoff for graphic violent mayhem. Could have been a bit more action for my common denominator needs but I did cringe a few times, feeling somewhat mortal.

Some minor critiques. The exterior lighting with high contrast and great shadows was superb but the lighting for interiors was too even and felt like a TV studio set. Of course the whole thing felt filmed in a studio but the exterior had more contrast, style where as interiors seemed to just do the 'play it safe' sort of BBC lighting.

Good job to actors, great sound, nicely done set painters though a bit more obvious then subtle. Interesting music score.
