Just terrible
24 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

What amazes me about this film is that it seems the director thought he was making a good film. It has a serious tone and the monsters were trying to be painfully scary but I agree with a previous reviewer that it looks like they were just guys in rented suits from a local Halloween store. I couldn't believe my eyes the first time I saw one of the monsters (or whatever they were). They looked absolutely awful and not in a frightening way. The head piece was very static and the mouths barely moved except for the awful CGI overlay. Additionally, they had a very bad CGI scorpion tail that they used to try to execute victims with. The writer didn't even try to spend two seconds explaining where these creatures came from. The performances from the cast are some of the worst I have seen but my biggest gripe was with the writing. People just don't act and talk like they do in this film. Now I LOVE monster movies. I eat that stuff up!! This one, however, was so hard for me to finish. I honestly don't know how I was able to sit though the whole thing. This is probably the worst movie I have seen in 2009.
