Goofs

Valerie was carrying a lantern and a backpack. When she ran out of the cave, she had no lantern or backpack. Then, in the next scene, her backpack is back. But the lantern is still gone, presumably, she may have dropped it before running out of the cave. See more »

I hoped no CGI were used in this one
29 August 2009 | by (Jordan-Amman) – See all my reviews

The movie is amusing in most parts of it. The plot is OK for a TV movie, but the movie could've been more amusing if the creature was something more ghostly or mysterious, instead of the bad CGI and his rapid inorganic movement speed.

The characters buildup was not that properly orchestrated, makes sense to me with all these characters around, but at least the lead character must have got special treatment, there. Acting is pale. Blood is not real, and camera shooting angles – my son could've done better job. I wish most of the killing were done by the hunted, which may have made the movie more plausible.

Also I don't know how the scientist survived the bare island that long. And she was in good shape when she found them. I don't know how long she had to endure this monster chase and the island conditions.

Will guys I watched this flick till the end for one reason: the ladies were nice to watch acting :)
