Film crew in a desperate situation
3 January 2015 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

A film crew goes to an island to shoot some footage for an extremely poor TV series. The captain who brought them to the island warns them something terrible has happened on this island in the past, and yes, of course it happens again. Giant rats attack the film crew and eat them one by one. They are controlled by a man with a flute, and the captain is no stranger to him...

The strong side of the movie is its comedy about a film crew in a desperate situation. No, I'm not talking about the monsters, but the series they are shooting. The director tries to be a total dictator ("I am the director, obey me!"), the photographer and writer are frustrated with their jobs, the star of the show constantly seeks advice from his agent, while others just want to get their money and go home. I think the only thing where it goes over the top is the 'snake bites goat' scene, but otherwise it's enjoyable.

The poor side of the movie is the creature horror, because their extremely unrealistic, clumsy moves prove that computer generated images can be worse than the dogs disguised as rats they used 50 years ago in the movie that inspired this late sequel.
