Wow. This is good.
5 June 2011 | by (within the minds of the thinking citizen) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how fantastic this was. I walked into a theater in Fort Worth, Texas at the Belmont Film Festival, and watched a film called El Sonoma. I had no clue what it was about.

Well, heres the plot. It involves a group of teens at a high school at some party. A mosquito (after a very well made opening scene) lands on a girls arm (Makenzie Isom) and drinks her blood. She just thinks its a mosquito and squashes it. However, a few minutes later, she goes into a bathroom (to take a dump or something) and she transforms into a giant leopard. When her friends go into to check on her, she attacks and bites another kids before getting killed. This is the start of El Sonoma.

Basically, a bunch of teens are getting transformed into animals. There's 2 cat transformations (leopard and puma), a rat transformation, and a snake transformation. All of them are on screen (except the rat).

The star is Tyler Wright as Tyler Mayfield, a jock who can kick some ass. He is my favorite character in this film. Other characters include Punker Chick, a girl that listens to 80's punk and is the main love interest, and Brody, the best friend of Tyler.

This film has FANTASTIC effects. The transformations are so well done, its like it was made in a big studio. And its not CGI, its all animatronics. It must be seen to be believed.

One problem I have is that the language is really high. I tried to count how many times they said the "c-word", but lost count. Other than that, definitely check it out it you have the it on DVD?
