Extremely cheap and awful monster movie.
19 September 2007 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

An astronaut gets infected by space spores and turns into one of the stupidest looking creatures I have ever seen.His spaceship crashes in a Florida swamp and the monster quickly begins killing people.There are some hilarious moments in this piece of utter garbage like the attack of armadillo or a worm bursting out of some idiot's neck.There is a decent amount of gore,but the film lacks any scares and features almost no nudity.The plot is bland and the final showdown with an alien is so utterly ridiculous that it defies description.I have seen plenty of awful Z-grade horror flicks in my time and "Dark Universe" is among the worst.It truly reeks.2 out of 10.
