So-So Indie Werewolf Short Film
11 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I was watching CHIMERA, I got the feeling I was watching something from the late seventies. That isn't a bad thing. Likewise, CHIMERA isn't a bad film. At only 22 minutes long, it dosen't wear out its welcome and the film makers clearly did the best they could with the ultra-low budget they had.

In fact, bad audio and some wooden acting are really the only problems CHIMERA suffered from. The gun and gore effects, though rare, are decent, and the direction is kind of nifty at times, but we never actually see the Werewolf aside from its hands. Plus, there were times when I had to adjust my speakers to hear what the actors were saying.

The plot revolves around a group of soldiers investigating an abandoned research facility in the Arctic Circle, and lo and behold, they find a Werewolf that kills them off one by one. Sure, its generic, but I don't mind unoriginality much, just as long the film itself isn't that bad.

And CHIMERA isn't that bad. It has a couple suspenseful moments, and does something imaginative with its generic plot line. I'd recommend seeing it at least once. Now if only the audio wasn't so bad...
