Mandrake and Sitting on the Fence: A Movie Review

26 April 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Tripp Reed.

Writer: David Ray.

From the creators of the upcoming Ice Quake and Mega Cyclone comes the human-eating Mandrake. This SyFy Original premiered in early April, with a future showing in May and this production follows a research team into the jungles of Central America. Here, actors Nick Gomez, Max Martini, and Wayne Pere play anthropologists in search of an ancient, yet cursed, dagger. Soon, the mandrake, normally a poisonous plant, is released and viewers might be searching for something unique in this SyFy Original; this reviewer had to dig deep (get it) to find its uniqueness. A killing bush, the inclusion of two, possibly three villains, and the talk of Conquistador curses creates some of the thrills in this relatively action packed film adventure.

The real mandrake root is actually very poisonous and according to ancient legend, those who unearth the mandrake are soon to hear its cry and later die. »
