needs a bigger budget
2 June 2018 | by Apartment8JSee all my reviews

Imagine the blob creature from ''Creepshow 2'', in walking monster form, with the face of Venom from Spiderman, killing technique of Victor Crowley, that rapes women. You end up with ''Claw''. This reminded me a lot of those Hatchet movies, but with a budget too small to go it's full potential. A lot of the times the kills look very choppy, and it makes me wonder if that was done because of lack of funds. Fortunately you're still able to tell what's going on.

The camera work at times is super shaky for no reason. It seems like the director just graduated from film school, this is his first big project, and he's experimenting with different angles. Overall it's a silly fun b movie
