Flawed but commendable
3 August 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Writer/director Jeffrey Obrow is another relatively unknown filmmaker, but surely fans of '80s creature features will remember his slimy magnus opus "The Kindred" (1987). In recent years the man brought us "They Are Among Us". What if our parents were actually aliens, starting colonies on earth, converting human beings into their race to secretively walk among us? With a mouthful premise like this, the script could have used a talented supervisor as Obrow's story feels very inconsistent. But still a handful of interesting ideas stand out and the special effects are commendable. In an era where CGI had taken over, Obrow opted for real make-up effects and old fashioned creature designs. A muddled affair, but a curious watch nonetheless.
