Editorial Reviews

An isolated outpost in the wilderness becomes a battleground between humankind and morphing microscopic monster in this gross-out shocker from horror master Brett Piper. When a handful of friends stumble upon the abandoned building, they come face to face with a biological weapons experiment gone catastrophically wrong. As the flesh-hungry contagion spreads from person to person – rendering each host into a pile of infectious ooze – it begins to multiply and increase in size. A covert military force sent in to destroy the organism discovers the extent of the slithering mutation, but by then it’s too late for conventional tactics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good For What It Is March 9, 2008
Format:DVD
Another scientific experiment goes wrong due to military involvement. A group of paintballers find themselves trapped in an old house being used as a laboratory to test and find a cure for a new form of germ warfare. The germ has different ideas and mutates again so it can escape. Our cast is trapped with the mutated germ while the military prevents them from escaping. Meanwhile, a committee responsible for the problem works on a way of eliminating the problem. The ending is rather original and refreshing.
Brett Piper did a good job with this one. I have enjoyed a number of his other films. This film is rated PG-13 but has a rather large amount of nudity for the rating. Acting is reasonable for the budget and far from horrible. In one scene it was nice to see that they did not fake the helicopter like in so many other recent films. All in all a good effort a monster/suspense film. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful B-movie homage. March 30, 2009
Format:DVD
Bacterium (Brett Piper, 2006)

Ever wonder what would happen if someone with a real affection for fifties nuclear-powered B movies decided to try and make one in modern times? Not a parody, like the brilliant Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, but a real, honest-to-pete straight-up monster movie? The result would be Bacterium, Brett Piper's squidgy, but quite fun, amorphic-goo movie about a genetically-engineered pathogen gone wild. Piper is best-remembered for A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell, the best-named movie of 1991, but this one definitely delivers the goods better than that one did.

Plot: a group of paintballers stumble upon a remote house in the woods that contains a scientist who's hiding out from his government handlers. I'd written more here, but really, even that constitutes minor spoilers. Still, you can probably guess where everything's going as long as you've seen a handful of B movies in the course of your existence.

Piper obviously has a deep affection for the low-budget B movies of the fifties (you'd pretty much have to to have made a movie called A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell, am I wrong?), and he sticks pretty close to formula here. This is not a bad thing, especially given that we're now more than far enough away from the time when the formula was cool that this comes off as a nostalgia trip. It's a no-brainer that if you're a fellow fan, this is going to be right up your alley. If, on the other hand, you see giant nuclear ants and wonder what all the fuss is about, pass this one up. ***
