I went into this film expecting very little, and that's what I got back. Do not get me wrong, I'm not one of those movie goers hating on horror, or low budget films. I love them both, but this film, there's no love.
I was bored! The acting was bad, and not in a campy way. The attempts to create any tension were tedious and insulting. The story line was a rip from numerous horror films before hand (Night of the living dead, Feast, Dog Soldiers etc).
I will give the film Kudo's for it's practical effects, whilst the creature resembled beasts like Feast, Raw Head Rex, Pumpkin head and The Secret of Nihm. It wasn't CGI, thankfully.
I can't help but feel that Drew Barrymores involvement was intended to create another cult horror flick such as Matt Damons, Ben Afflecks and Wes Cravens produced film Feast (2005). It fails, it lacks the creative direction. Though it had all the correct ingredients, it just felt under prepared, and then over cooked.
I didn't hate this film, but I rolled my eyes, and asked why so many times! It's a no brainer, if you want to waste 90 minutes then watch. If you don't, then watch one of the films it was trying to be, simple.
