Editorial Reviews

Mysterious scars on his body lead Frank Sears' (Jonathan Schaech, The Doom Generation) to the terrifying truth behind a top secret Cold War biological experiment buried deep below a derelict Army base. Awakened and unleashed on an unsuspecting world, the Organizm absorbs light and energy, feeds on the living and is growing at an unstoppable rate. Sears and Army hazmat specialist Carrie Freeborn (Erica Leerhsen, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, 2003) only have a few hours to unlock the entity's genetic code before mankind is extinguished.

If you are a fan of modern creature features like "Slither", "Tremors" or "Splinter" then you will enjoy "Organizm". It's your typical mutant-biological-threat-that-can-destroy-the-world type of flick that is perfect viewing late on a Saturday night.

The basic story is that a biological weapon is unwittingly released in the American Southwest (these things always happen in or around the desert dontchyaknow?). Escaping from its confines the titular organism which looks like fleshy ropes seems unstoppable! Boring through concrete, steel, traveling underground....it doesn't seem like there is any way to stop this creepy menace as it bores into and feeds on anything in its path.

I liked the "monster" in this creature feature, it acted in a similar fashion to "The Blob"...only much quicker, and more aggressive in tracking its meals.

The special effects are a notch above Sci-Fi Channel produced movies, and the cast is made up of your typical b-movie horror character actors, but they do a good job with the what they are given.

If you are in the mood for a fun little sci-fi/horror ride, and don't mind direct to DVD effects and some loopy plot holes, give "Organizm" a shot, it's a fun 90 minutes.

Organizm is a pretty solid movie that suffers from two problems. The movie contradicts itself at times, and some of the most atrocious CGI and green screen work I have ever seen. Bad CGI usually doesn't bother me because its par for the course in low budget movies, but it is just so bad that it deterred me from fully enjoying the movie. And another problem is that the movie seemed to have some sort of budget because everything else about it was pretty good, so the CGI issue really is unforgivable. Now thus far it may seem as though I'm bashing the movie, but I did enjoy it. In fact, if the CGI had been in the hands of more competent individuals, then this would have received a four star rating easily. But as it stands, we are left with a nice Sci-Fi / Horror time killer worthy of watching, but just don't expect the next classic here.

first johnathon schaech is just too sexy, hot, and gorgeous. i always thought he was so handsome. lol its funny he dont have to do much in his movies but just be in the movie. this movie is so bad ass really. this is definitely a movie you will want to add to your collection of horror movies. seeing him in this movie reminded me he is one of my favorite actors. i love the fact that he lived at the end of the movie and the lady lived at the end of the movie. also i like that the rest of the army crew that stayed lived too. now this is a movie with a happy ending. sad her husband died though he was also gorgeous. :-) you wont be disappointed at this movie. i like how he was able to save everybody . i thought he was going to die and get blowned up etc. it would have been nice to have added some romance between them too, lol at the moment when he was rubbing the blood all over her i thought they was going to do what most movies do make out, but they didnt have any make out sessions in this movie so that makes this movie unique from the typical movies and for that and all thee above, this movie deserves 5 stars :-)

This is a fair scifi offering that gets better as it progresses. When it started, I thought, oh well, another not so good science fiction that I wished was better. Then it got better.

Kind of put me in mind of the old scifi's like the Blob and The Stuff, and newer like The Ruins. Worked pretty well and became better as it went along. About a biological weapon developed late 50's and then locked away in an underground vault. Forgotten, the army base is abandoned and later scheduled for demolition. Guess what happens.

Won't ruin the story for you but it is a good addition if you get it on DVD for $7 or less shipped. One thing you'll notice is some of the computer graphics aren't great, but the creature effects are actually pretty good. It doesn't have attempts at humor like the Stuff, so don't expect that. It is a little predictable, a little slow very early on but the pace picks up. Acting is good from the main characters. A good watch you might view from time to time.

I picked this up under the misleading title 'Living Hell' for 4.99 Eur in Germany and to be honest didn't have particularly high expectations having had many disappointments with similar low-budget DVD titles. Maybe there was something in the description that set it apart that I decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did. A surprisingly well-acted, well-paced and plotted bio-horror with quite an original premise. A creeping monster-virus - the result of a Cold War experiment gone horribly wrong (surprise!) - that absorbs energy to grow exponentially, remorselessly enveloping everything in its path and defying all efforts to stop it, not least the US Army's predictably mindless attempts to bomb it out of existence. Clearly done on a small-budget, the actors and the director make the most of their limited resources to produce a surprisingly convincing and reasonably scary experience that if it had a slightly larger budget, might have got more attention. I can see Hollywood seeing enough merit to do a big-budget remake. Far superior to most of the straight-to-DVD horrors you see in video stores.
