was pretty good, with good slug effects. Then if you look at the extras you can
see why. This is another ' dont have enough budget ' movie. They did'nt have much
and used all the tricks in the book to have this movie made with what they had.
I have to give all a thumbs up for the good work they did on the film, but the
end product suffers a bit due to all the shortcuts.
So in the end, its a pretty good movie, but i dont think i want to watch it a
Growth is one of those movies about which a whole lot of people are unloading a whole lot of calumny over on the IMDB boards. I've got an hypothesis about that (don't I always?). A lot of the things folks are saying—and I add, even before we get into it, that most of them are accurate—are the kinds of things that people say about movies that inspire ennui, not ire; it's boring, it's got plotholes you can drive a truck through, the acting is awful (that one I will dispute, at least in part, later on), the script is worse, etc. Nothing you haven't seen in hundreds of other DTV low-budget special effects extravaganzas. I think the reason that one has drawn so much hatred is that somewhere under the surface of this movie is a really, really good—perhaps great—movie. I think people are reacting to that, rather than the film we got. And that is a valid approach to criticizing the movie. But on the other hand, that also tends to give short shrift where it is, perhaps, undeserved; if you can separate what could have been from what is and overlook a few shortcomings that really are as bad as people make them out to be, this is actually not an awful way to kill ninety minutes if you're a fan of creepy-crawly horror.
Plot: researchers in a secret genetic lab on a remote island make a breakthrough in 1989, but it ends up getting loose and causing a massacre. Fast-forward twenty years. Jamie Ackerman (Magic Mike's Mircea Monroe), who escaped the terror of that night, and a handful of her friends return to the sparsely-populated island to sell her family's property. But something feels off.Read more ›
But things feel far too slapped together overall. And worse, I kept asking myself, "Why are these people so stupid?" They walk into a field they know is loaded with parasites, and then just at random decide it would be a good idea to tape their pants legs shut. Why not before walking into the field? And then the leader of the town council goes to the lair of the madman infected psychopath and he's like, "Mason, I'm not armed." Why the hell not? And you have this team of heavily armed guys attacking a dangerous man they know has superhuman strength and agility. And once they have him surrounded, they proceed to tackle him in hand-to-hand-combat one at a time or once in pairs. Come on folks.
Still, if you love movies like Slither and Splinter, you'll probably dig this. I did..
