User Reviews

 
Old school John Carpenter style creature feature
10 August 2020 | by ReliableReviewSee all my reviews

It's not too bad as a creepy creature feature on a deserted ship. The movie has similar vibes to Aliens, the Thing, Pitch Black, Underwater but is not better than any of them as it doesn't have a big budget so the movie focuses on character development and creepy atmosphere which is enjoyable for the suspense. Note it's not an action movie. The production and set design is well done. But once the vampire shows up it's just a guy in a Halloween mask so it's old school practical effects as CGI is expensive.

So the setup is great but the last half is a bit of a letdown. Still it's a fun creepy watch especially if you're into the Nazi occult thing. Overlord takes the top prize in that genre and Ghosts of War is also very good. I liked both of them a lot. But lower your expectations and this is watchable.
