Storyline

Over centuries humans have been mysteriously disappearing with no explanations, just hushed whispers in the dark. On the surface Prophet Hills seems like a perfect place to live and raise a family, but Danny Kessler (Baldwin) has seen better days. This is one man's journey to find the culprit of the ultimate sacrifice he's endured. He must face his demons and go back to the place that has haunted him. He must convince family, friends and townspeople that something is not right in Prophet Hills. He must make them believe that something evil is living beneath their own backyards.

Silly monsters ahoy.
2 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After witnessing his wife murdered and his children stolen by subterranean creatures Danny Kessler goes for a five year stroll (I assume, as we don't find out where he's been) Only to return on the night the creatures decide to eat the town.

Born of earth is a cheaply made and flawed movie. That being said I still quite enjoyed it. The plot is predictable and old yet still quite fun. After the opening the story takes a while to get going again but becomes fairly enjoyable when the monsters start killing everyone.

The creatures themselves are a little silly looking. I often find with creature movies that I wished I'd seen a little more of the creatures but that was not the case here. There was no subtlety, they were constantly squat walking or bouncing across the screen looking quite ridiculous. I won't mention the effect when one of them is killed. The gore effects on the other hand are fairly decent. There's a couple of good kills in there and these creatures sure love munching on entrails.

The acting is a bit hit and miss Daniel Baldwin is OK and Brad Dourif is good despite being dressed in a suit twice his size but everyone else is your standard B-movie grade acting.

So Born of earth was a movie I did end up quite enjoying but I doubt many others will.
