Alien killing machine preys upon a group of teens & their guides in the desert
8 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

RELEASED TO TV IN 2015 and directed by Greg Kiefer, "Thirst" is about a 'Second Chance' boot camp for wayward youths in the New Mexican desert wherein the group stumbles upon a formidable alien creature and her freshly hatched infant. Horror ensues.

The plot is borrowed from "Flu Bird Horror" and "Grizzly Park" (both from 2008), but lacks the meaty subtext of the former (I'm not joking) and the humor of the latter. The desert wilderness cinematography is magnificent while the no-name cast takes the material seriously and performs with gusto. John Redlinger, who's reminiscent of Chris Pine, plays the youthful trail guide and arises as the main protagonist. Clare Niederpruem, who looks like a younger Kate Mara, plays one of the troubled kids who inspires Redlinger's character.

The vicious alien monster has a centaur-like form and is interestingly biomechanical in nature, which is never explained. Someone insisted that the mechanical elements reveal that it MUST have originated from Earth. No, all it reveals is that the creature is curiously made-up of android-like components (the arrogance of some to think that Earth is the only planet of the gazillions of planets in the Universe to contain intelligent beings that can produce technical machineries).

Bottom line: Sure, it's a hackneyed TV horror flick with a beginning that borrows from "The Blob" (1958) and an ending that borrows from "Aliens" (1986), but it has its unique points and works well for what it is. The score by Sean Jackson us superlative.

THE MOVIE RUNS 87 minutes and was shot in Utah. WRITERS: Elizabeth Hansen & Greg Kiefer. ADDITIONAL CAST: Jes Macallan & Karl Makinen play the adult instructors while Ryan Zimmer, Cardiff Gerhardt, Ashley Santos & Bryan Dayley appear as other delinquent juveniles. Christina Thurmond and Mike Law are also on hand.
