Quotes

Alissa: I can't stop. If I do, I'll think about what that thing might have done to him. Or relive watching what it did to Jeff. But if I keep my eyes here and I focus, I can imagine what I'm gonna do to it. I'm gonna kill that thing, Mandy. I'm not gonna run any more. I'm gonna kill it. I don't know how, but I will. Or at least let me think I will.
Mandy: [sniffles] I'm pregnant.

Feast was a tad bit better.
17 June 2014 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

This coming from one who quite hated Feast: had budget, potential, managed to pick some good actors, but the execution there was laughable in a very bad way.

So why is this one even worse? Well it does create the impression that the crew will stick together, the acting will try to be at least average, but the script doesn't allow much beyond it. It is a used idea, badly executed, looking like a cheap movie instead of being a solid B horror. The perfect dumb decisions taken throughout the movie, the characters not smart enough to survive, the "natural" reactions coming from the situation, the night that is not dark enough to cover the movie and make it easier on us.

Animal is a bad movie in the end, sorry to say so, but you won't find nothing new here. To be honest, I once saw a movie "Grizzly Park" that I found to be so much better than Animal. You get a few laughs at that one and a ending that kinda makes it worth while. This one tho, a total time waster, minutes you will want back.

Try something else, you will do better easily!
