My best friend and I are always on the look out for the next great "Army vs. Creepy Thing(s)" movie, and I've been holding on to this one for us with exactly that in mind, ever since I picked it up ex-rental in 2009. Now here we finally are, New Year's Day a full decade later, and we actually got around to watching it. Too bad it sucked a lot. Especially given the cast. Kind of a let down after all that.
It's a fucking tragedy that Ron Pearlman cannot get any decent work in movies anymore. It's an absolute tragedy. And the decent work that he DOES get requires him to be drowned in make up. It's just sad to me, that a man of Ron Pearlman's talent has to make these kinds of movies just because he isn't the most handsome man out there. Not that there's anything wrong with being in these types of movies as actors have to eat too, so I understand that. Either way, this movie wasn't that bad for a low-budget direct-to-dvd movie. I probably shouldn't judge a book by its cover as Botch (one of the more entertaining horror movies I've seen in a while) is a low-budget direct-to-dvd movie. With that said I probably enjoyed this movie due to its unintentional comedy and that's it. It's just a very campy horror movie, so nobody should expect anything revolutionary from this movie. That's all I can really say about this movie, I just "enjoyed" it for its unintentional comedy, if you want to watch this film to watch something serious then you're screwed.
Let me be clear. I'm giving this one star for Perlman and Winstone, and them *only*. Even Gooding, Jr. falls flat. Hardly his fault, though, seeing as the script was a gigantic mess and the plot even more so. Copious amounts of gore and "Gotcha!" moments won't save a film. *Especially* not this one. [shudder] Avoid at all costs.
