This Australian production is just the kind of movie that I like to watch. You take a group of individuals and place them in a situation that they can't possibly survive. For example - a genetic research station on another planet that has gone into lock down because whatever they were experimenting on went ape shit and now have a taste for anything moving.
A group of mercenaries sent down to the station team up with the few lab workers still alive and try to survive long enough to figure out what exactly is going on. I have to tell you that the explanation is pretty much the stupidest I have ever heard in any movie. And I have seen a lot of movies. I am tempted to tell you but I would rob you of the joy of yelling 'bullshit' at the TV if you ever see it pop up one late night.
The monsters are pretty well done as there is plenty of gore to satisfy fans of the genre. For a small budget they do a good job at creating an atmosphere of dread. However the script is really horrific as are the performances. The actors must have been related to the director because it appears they have had NO training.
I could forgive all that if not for that 'explanation'. It's really out of left field - no it's out of the field BEYOND left field. You have seen it all before in much better movies.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
