My family and I got together a posse to see this movie during it’s limited 2-day release. To refresh, this movie was the final Project Greenlight project. It was actually completed about 2 years ago, but it took some time (and some reshoots) to get it out.
The plot is simple and From Dusk to Dawn-esque. A group of people are stuck in a dingy old bar in the middle of nowhere with creatures trying to get inside. I have to say, it was really the humor that saved this movie. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and is deliciously campy and gross. What I didn’t like so much was the lack of character development and the way the camera is shaky every time there’s some action. It makes it hard to focus and SEE what is going on. This movie was featured in the current issue of Fangoria, so I saw the creatures up front. But in the movie? You’re not so lucky.
But for being what it was at face value- low budget, relatively amateur director/writers- it wasn’t too bad. I enjoyed myself. Compared to a lot of shit out there (*cough House of the Dead cough*) that gets a wide release, this movie is so much better. It wasn’t the best horror movie, but it sure the hell wasn’t the worst.
