Storyline

On a hot summer afternoon in the sleepy town of Blackwater, Louisiana locals exiting a retro-fitted theater excitedly watch as a meteor streaks across the sky and crashes through the roof of the local Natural History Museum. No one realizes that the meteor is actually a spaceship containing a shape-shifting life form. In order to adapt to Earth's atmosphere, the life form latches on to the first organism it comes in contact with - a partially frozen Woolly Mammoth found in the historic exhibit for which the town is famous. As a series of uncanny disasters unfold, the town quickly finds itself overrun by the alien-possessed mammoth. Local authorities and Government Investigators join forces with Frank Abernathy, the Museum Curator, and his father Simon, a B-Movie enthusiast to bring down the mighty mammoth, thus saving the town (and the world) in a wild adventure that blends the 50s alien-invasion flick, and the 70s revenge-of-nature opus into a marauding monster mash!

Not a woolly mammoth! There were woolly mammoths further north, but the one in this film seems to be a Columbian Mammoth, which was not woolly. See more »

A Lot of Fun!
24 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this over the weekend and thought it was one of the best SCI-FI originals I've seen. Sure, it's all over the map story-wise, and the Mammoth isn't very scary or visually impressive, but I laughed quite a bit and enjoyed the performances. The main cast is top-notch and they seemed to have fun working together. I kept thinking that I'd like to see these characters return in another movie or a series. Most of the characters in these SCI-FI flicks are just one- dimensional monster snacks. Tim Cox also does a nice job directing. I remember his short film, "The Man With No Eyes," airing during the "Exposure" series that SCI-FI ran several years ago.

Overall, a nice little '50s B-Movie throwback. Since they canceled "Farscape," these licks are the only reason I watch SCI-FI anymore. Good to see them finally using good actors and good directors. Hope to see more of that.
