The original title of this movie was Shapeshifter, which gives you a better idea of what it is about. A foreign production with mainly American actors including the always excellent Josh Stewart, but even the foreign ones are speaking English. As a horror movie goes it's OK, the acting is decent, there are scares, gore, some thrills, just not enough of any of these things. It doesn't stand out as being anything really different from so many other horror movies today, and is completely forgettable. The Shapeshifter creature is excellent though, a genuinely frightening creation. It seems some money was spent on effects, this isn't a movie where monsters look like a rubber mask from a dollar store. Just a shame they didn't add in more scares and a more coherent script. By the time it ended on a somewhat preposterous note, I'm still not sure what was going on. 6 stars for being somewhat interesting, not a bore, a great monster, and a cut above the many low budget horror films floating around.
