Starts out pretty bad but turns out alright despite it's flaws
2 November 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

The first 20 minutes I wasn't into it at all, and I can see many people simply turning it off after that length of time BUT it actually got better after that, due to a somewhat original storyline (which we don't get too many of in the horror genre).

Don't get me wrong, it's not a 'great' movie but it at least went from a complete turd to passable time-waster.

The acting could have been better and the characters don't have many layers to them, but for some reason it didn't bother me as much as it usually does.

It's not really as dark or gory as the bloody poster would leave you to believe, it's more of a dark comedy than a full on horror (even though there are graphic scenes of violence and sex).

Oh and for Malcolm McDowell fans, Mac only appears for one scene (unless you count a film-clip that's being shown on a projector in one scene of him having sexual intercourse with a woman much younger than him in space).

I can't really recommend it strongly or anything but if you've started watching it I can recommend you continue doing so throughout the remainder of the running-time, there is always that.
