(In an interview with the website RogueCinema; talking about CGI) "I made it up in Canada and when we were done shooting and I had left the project then they did all the CGI. Well they did it so horribly that the film kind of sunk. They hired... (pausing to consider his next words) unknowledgeable people to handle the CGI effects. When they were done it looked more like a game show or something like a cheap game. That's where I think you run into a lot of problems when people don't know what their doing with it and people are getting tired of seeing that." See more »
I have seen better acting in sixth grade plays. And better sets. And better productions. You get the idea. Its the lamest movie I have ever watched. Fortunately I didn't pay for it at a rental, came across it on TV and only watched it because at first I thought it was Saturday Night Live or something making fun of the movies. The people who are part of this movie should be blacklisted and not allowed to be part of any movie ever again! I feel like calling my cable company and demanding a pro rata share of my monthly bill back for them putting such garbage on TV. If you see this movie on, unplug your TV! That being said, I think some "B" movies make fun of themselves or the genre. Or some, like Shawn of the Dead, are really funny. The problem with The Thing Below is more serious, everyone seems to think they are making a real movie of interest and entertainment. Sometimes I wonder what the old guys, like Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling (Twilight Zone), who are masters of suspense, would have done if they had the technology and special effects to add to their craft.
