Did You Know?


(at around 1 min) There is a long camera shot of Erika and Jake standing in front of a picket fence, facing each other, about 25 feet apart. They start charging at each other and the camera shows close-ups of each, cutting back and forth between the two, as they are in a full sprint for seven seconds. The camera then switches back to a long shot, and you see that each of them have moved only about four feet. See more »

User Reviews

very well written and acted, but SFX are limp
23 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The films approach is light hearted with some tongue in cheek nods to the X-files conspiracy theorists. It's not an SF gore fest, in fact they go out of their way to avoid the gore we've come to expect with such a sub-genre.

The writing is excellent in places and overall you engage with the protagonists- watching Tim & John is really entertaining (in a good way). I think with lesser leads this would have sunk without a trace.

It only seems to drag with the antagonists are on screen as the wolf SFX leave a lot to be desired. They throw in some matrix style fight scenes, but they aren't amazing.

Watch it for Tim & John if nothing else- great scenes.
