Micro-budget Indie about a horrid abomination terrorizing people in Montana
3 September 2020 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

A young man dying of cancer, his girlfriend, a college field trip and an officer converge on the Bear Claw Wilderness to witness the walking horror known as The Shadow of Death.

"Clawed" (2017) is a spare-change Indie creature feature with quality locations, an excellent monster, lots o' convincing gore and a decent cast that includes Felissa Rose from "Sleepaway Camp" (1983) & "Return to Sleepaway Camp" (2008), as well as a couple other good-looking females. Some of the camera work & editing is interesting or experimental, but also amateurish. The sound-work is noticeably bad (you'll know what I mean), but at least you can always make out what's being said.

The biggest problem is the way the film was put together wherein the story doesn't build any drive. I wanted to turn it off 30 minutes in, but persevered. At least there are some good things to glean, if you don't mind very low-budget Indies.

The film runs 1 hour, 30 minutes. I can't find any info on where it was shot, but it looked more like Southern Cal than Montana.

GRADE: C-
