The iconic line, "Stop eating that banana while you're crying," was actually not originally planned for the movie. The actor had simply been eating a banana on set and another had jokingly yelled at them for eating it. The directors had happened to see this interaction, and decided to incorporate it into the movie. See more »
Old and new school effects with no glossy teen beef dripping
A team investigating climate change discovers a mysterious organic substance that has the ability to transform both animals and humans into terrifying mutations.
This is an entertaining well made eco-horror film in the vein of the Thing (1982). Director Marvin Kren as with zombie flick Rammbock delivers a satisfying and interesting entry into a saturated horror genre with surprisingly effective at times well realized gory effects. There's some jump moments, old and new school special effects and It benefits from an un-Hollywood quality cast including Gerhard Liebmann as Janek and Edita Malovcic as Tanja but the real star of the show breathtaking Alps setting and H. G Wells-like impressionable provoking ending.
While not as tense or physiologically claustrophobic as The Thing (1982) this German language science fiction is adult orientated for those tired of glossy, poorly directed, teen beef and pork dripping tripe. Recommended
