When the Vampire pulls Javier through the bars, he fits easily, therefore, the Vampire should have been able to escape at any time. Also, when he is being pulled through, his hand "bends" the bars slightly, showing that they are not as hard as thought. See more »

In fact I thought it was pretty good. And before I get accused of being a shill or part of the production team/company, I usually find that these types of movies are not done particularly well. I did find myself surprised by this, after convincing myself from the concept, which has been seen many times and often done in a cheesy fashion, that I'd hate it. But I'm glad I did give it a chance, as The Insatiable is much better than the concept makes out. Okay, it is not perfect, there are some slow-moving parts towards the beginning that made me think initially that it wouldn't be a good movie, the ending is rushed and I personally did find the character of Javier annoying. On the plus side, I thought technically The Insatiable was quite good. I know there are people who are not a fan of the techniques used, I'm not a fan really myself, however they are not over-used and they are not too cheap either. The scenery is more than just looking like somebody's basement and the make-up and such is also a vast improvement on other movies within the genre like Mutants and Vampegeddon. I've heard better music before, but also much worse and more over-bearing, while the sound effects aren't bizarre. The script does surprisingly have its fun and intelligent moments(I was in all honesty expecting cheese and a complete lack of flow), and the story while not completely perfect actually grabbed me, made the concept seem fresh and while mixing different genres it gave the vibe that it knew exactly what it wanted to be. On all those points, it does deserve a lot of credit in my eyes. On the most part, I liked the characters. I didn't care much for Javier(personal tastes of course), but the lead character I found easy to root for. The acting was also good, in Sean Patrick Flannery's case I'd go as far to say it was great. Charlotte Ayanna is not only gorgeous but also likable. Michael Biehn was good too but deserved more screen time. Overall, considering what I was dubiously expecting, The Insatiable was not bad at all. 7/10 Bethany Cox
