Trivia

The transformation scene was intended to be done in one shot with a technologically new camera rig that would be programmed to shoot from multiple angles as if it were a single shot. However, an unforeseen problem was that, since no one had ever used one before, it took two full days to program the rig properly See more »

Goofs

No knowledgeable revolver owner, especially a veteran, would snap the cylinder closed like Ambrose did (multiple times). Doing so can bend the crane, resulting in a misalignment of the cylinder and the barrel. See more »

Quotes

Ambrose: What is wrong with him?
Gloria B.: He is in an iron lung.
Ambrose: Poor fucking bastard.

He's still got it
28 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you need your dose of creature feature, Late Phases may not be a great one, but it is a pleasant one nonetheless. What's rather unusual is that the best bits don't come from the creatures but from the main character, his personality, and the way he deals with things. Played by Mr Damici, I found him quite fascinating.

More points for originality come from the setting itself, a sort of village full of elderly people. Something that you don't see everyday, and that ends up playing miles above all the teenage & monsters rubbish that pollutes our silver screens these days.

Late Phases has all you might expect from a decent B-movie: not the best FX and monster suits, but personality, intriguing developments, and fun. Many things are done right, like going into action right from the start and showing the creature in the first minutes. Even the music score has a couple of great moments. So why not a better note ? Well, none of the flaws is big enough to ruin the story, but I can't just ignore all the little goofs, and the costumes do look daffy after all.
