I don't think anyone here would expect an Oscar nod for a Sci-Fi original movie, so let's keep things in perspective. This production actually had a budget of only 1.4 million, as you well know that's almost more than they pour into one episode of BattleStar Galactica.
For what it is worth (meaning taking the budget into consideration), It's pretty damn good. Sure let's all make fun of the CG monster and the fact that it didn't bleed even when it's head got cut off. But there was a pretty epic setting (Bulgaria), and aside from a couple bad seeds the acting was pretty good, and the Photography was much better than average.
Let's consider the behind the scenes too... "Script", and let's pretend the director had a bit of latitude. The direction was very good. Most people say "garbage in - garbage out". I feel given what there was to work with the director made the most of it and pulled it off deserving praise. And you don't have to even have liked the flick to approach it in a critical way like this.
In my opinion this is a great forum to discuss all aspects of any release. My only piece of advice is to please not react in a knee-jerk way immediately after you've condemned someone's creative work. Great constructive criticism takes just as much effort and introspection. It's really easy to say something sucks; people likely won't pay you much attention though unless you do it constructively.
