Only to break the surface holding in his meaty paw…

One could be fooled that this might be more of a Sci-Fi movie by its opening scenes of a meteor soaring through the cosmos. An immediate thought of mine was the beginning to a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode (I only ever saw three *Feind sidenote – Feind stopped at Next Generation, he isn’t that big of a geek!). In actuality this is more of a “monster” movie that borrows heavily from creature FX devised by HR Giger (RIP) used in the Alien franchise. One scene in particular could have so easily been ripped from the aforementioned classics that I’m surprised a lawsuit was never filed for copyright infringement!
**Feind note – Feind is not a pervert and does not know what this “porno” Cult speaks of is. He did some research and is now rethinking this partnership!
The further I got into this feature the more I felt that it was underserved of a place amongst the other nineteen flicks it is bundled with (those DVD collections often have at least one gem hidden amidst the total shite!). Why, I hear you asking, dear Scribbler fans, because it has the feel of a movie that has somewhat of a budget! It’s professionally lighted & shot, scenes are decently written with actors that can actually *gulp* act! Sure there were scenes that were laughable (college girls prancing around as if possessed) and FX pieces that a high schooler could have conjured up but it was actually overall a decent movie, not great mind you, but decent enough to watch without my hand itching for the remote to end my torture.
Watch this delicious hunk of B here!
