excellent acting but a bit too much blah blah
8 September 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This German flick is hyped for only one reason. It's been compared every time to The Thing (1982) since it's been released. I must say that I understand why because some virus of living thing is hiding in bodies to transform them into nasty creatures. So far the comparison.

I did like TheThing, it still is in my Top 5 all time horrors since I started watching horror in the early eighties. So I thought that this one should become a classic too for me but I wasn't happy at the end. It's not that there isn't any action or whatsoever but sometimes it was a bit too much about Janek (Gerhard Liebmann) and his lost love in a way that you know that they would fall in love again towards the end.

On part of the effects and the horror itself it was okay but not that I will recommend it to friends. Of course it's low budget but some mutants are a bit cheesy, especially in the beginning. What I did like was when humans were attacked by the mutants. Just see the operation scene, that's well done.

But I never was sitting there watching it with suspense. therefor as I said it had to much of blah blah sometimes.

Still, it's worth seeing but maybe I expected to much due the hype, time will tell.
