Attack of the Computerized Mothman
29 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this if...you are someone who has nothing better to do on a slow afternoon or evening and don't mind a cheesy horror flick.

Acting/Casting: 2.5* - I would say it doesn't get much worse than this, but I have seen worse. It is obvious throughout that almost all involved are indeed acting. I always say good acting isn't noticeable because it shouldn't be obvious. The one decent performance goes to Jerry Leggio as Frank, who I thought did a nice job for what he had to work with in this movie.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 3* - The first 15 minutes really grab your attention and pull you in. From there it is all downhill and the movie gets progressively worse as it plays out. If they would have ended the movie 20 minutes earlier, I think this would have made the movie drastically better. The Mothman is computer generated and would have been better off not being as prominent throughout the film. Good scary movies leave a lot to the imagination and this one does not.

Plot/Characters: 3* - Outside of the fact that it revolves around the story of the Mothman, there really isn't much to say here. It takes the already established story of the Mothman and runs away with it adding twist and turns throughout. The problem is that the twist and turns really take away from the Mothman plot and make this into a second rate horror film.

Entertainment Value: 3* - As I mentioned, the first 15 minutes got my attention. After that I watched because it was marginally entertaining, but it almost gets to the point where you want to change the channel or turn it off. If I am lucky, I will not be watching this again.

My Score: 2.5+3+3+3 = 11.5/4 = 2.9
