I thought this would be one of those campy & fun horror movies, but it wasn’t……campy.

So, I ran out of movies this week and rented this one thinking that it could be fun. Well, I’m glad that I did. This goes a long way than just ONLY fun. The suspense was well-built, the acting was fantastic(which is surprising) and I ended up loving it.

The director did a good job making the creatures creepy but then again, monsters with splinters on them already contains decent amount of creep-factor in it.

The three leads did a good job adapting with the premise. I really liked Jill Wagner, she is hot and she can act(unlike Megan Fox) and the chemistry her character had with the two other characters while surviving the whole monster attack situation was brilliant.

The pacing was great, it doesn’t go too fast nor does it drag. Every second focuses on something that will help the movie get going one way or another.


The violence and gore is typical, just like any simple horror flick…BUT there is one scene that creeped me out—–> An arm is chopped off by a box-cutter and then the bone is broken by using a brick-type thingy<—–And it is very visual.


Nope. They weren’t in the mood I guess while surviving from a killer creature.


I have no real complaint about this movie, it was just fun in a whole different level, and it is very underrated. Watch it if you get a chance, it’s worth checking out if you’re into the sub-genre. It gets a 7 out of 10.
