Editorial Reviews

Two years ago, Mark Fisher disappeared from his home in rural Maine in a brilliant flash of otherworldly blue light. His friend Seth Hampton was the last to see him alive. Now, Seth is having disturbing premonitions that Mark has returned as something other than human. When grisly, violent murders start taking place in the community, Seth and his girlfriend Jen soon discover that Mark is indeed back, and that there is something terribly evil inside of him. Unbearably tense, director Joe Begos s ALMOST HUMAN is a chilling, frenetic, and brutal story of survival in the face of unknown terror.

This low budget independent film packed a big punch!
The acting was good enough to keep my interest, the story was well put together and executed .A man gets abducted from some other life form and two years later he returns looking human but harboring some strange new habits welding a shotgun an Ax and other weapons of destruction.

He kills people or at least it looks that way until he puts them in a gross gooey cocoon like thing until they are ready to hatch and become killers themselves.
The gore was pretty plentiful and done really well ,l love the old school practical effects.The lighting and camera work was fun for an old school feel and there were some parts that were pretty scary as well! Very creepy.

I think old school slasher lovers and alien abduction film lovers will appreciate this endeavor.

WARNING SPOILERS!!! As soon as I started watching this low-budget, inventive modern-day horror film, I was instantly transported back to the 80's. I know a lot of modern horror films try to emulate that period (releasing a film on VHS does not mean that nostalgia is going to come rushing over me like a tidal wave), but this one nails it right in the head. The film is full of little tributes to other horror and science fiction films from the 80's and earlier, but it is definitely an original film in its own right.
The film opens with the on-screen scrawl: "The following is based on events that took place in Patten, Maine." (but the film was shot in Rhode Island, one of the few horror film that I can remember being filmed entirely in that State). On Friday, October The 13th, 1987, Seth Hampton (Graham Skipper; TALES OF HALLOWEEN - 2015) is driving like a maniac down a dark road looking like he is trying to outrun someone or something. He makes it to friend Mark Fisher's (Josh Ethier; also this film's Editor and Co-Producer) home and is in a panic, staring through the Venetian blinds to see if whatever he is scared of has arrived. Seth tells Mike that "something is f*****g following me!" and goes on to explain that he was driving with their friend Rob when a blue light exploded in front of them and he nearly drove the car into a tree. Seth goes on to explain that there was an ear-piecing noise that made their ears bleed. Mike wants Seth to drive him to where this happened, but Seth refuses, yelling that Rob is gone because "a beam of light sucked him into the f*****g sky!" Seth warns Mark not to go there, but before Mark can make a decision, the blue light appears, engulfs the house and the electricity goes out, followed by the ear-piercing noise.

The low budget horror indie "Almost Human" is not a movie that should be oversold. When I picked up the Blu-ray with the requisite rave reviews (from Bloody Disgusting and Shock Til You Drop), I thought I might have found a small gem. Truthfully, though, I think I would have enjoyed the movie a bit more discovering it on my own without preconceived notions. This little movie borrows elements from a seventies slasher film and combines them with an alien abduction theme and throws in some classic Body Snatcher moments for good effect. The idea, itself, works terrifically well but I'm not sure the film was always as clever or as original as I might have hoped. After an intriguing beginning, my interest in the movie really started to wane. The body of the movie really lacks mystery or surprises, it's just a rampant killing spree (in which a larger dose of humor would have helped immeasurably). It isn't until the final confrontations, though, that the movie truly came alive. A couple of wacky moments (alien mating) really enliven matters and caused me to add an extra star to my rating.

Slight Spoilers (but nothing that would surprise you if you read the Blu-ray/DVD cover):

As I said, I quite liked how "Almost Human" began right in the thick of the action. We meet Seth Hampton (Graham Skipper) as he is driving as if the devil himself is chasing him. When he arrives at the home of his good friend Mark (Josh Ethier), he spins a harrowing tale of abduction and pursuit. Before Mark can truly comprehend what's happening, electrical disturbances and a mysterious blue light come to visit. And before you can say boo, Mark becomes one of the missing. What happened? If you expect a mystery to unfold, the screenplay takes us in an alternate direction.

I didn't want to watch this movie at first in fear it was like Fire in the Sky which freaks me out! It's an alien movie with some similarities that are frightening but overall it stood on it's own, had a good pace and was sufficiently scary for a decent movie experience

A clever little horror film from Rhode Island which actually delivers 'old school' thrills. The obvious talent being the musical score by Andrew Garfield. Very creepy (with a nod to the original master, John Carpenter) the music saves this digital movie from the $3.99 bin at Hastings). Another young talent is Vanessa Leigh who is not only gorgeous but a true scream queen in the making. I enjoyed this one even if all the scenes were lifted from all of the major horror hits of the early 80's: ( Evil Dead, The Thing, Friday the 13th,Poltergeist,...) It does work and has enough gore and nudity to please.
I was hoping for something more original but this was clearly a 'homage' to horror not an original effort. The acting is better than most of these new digital productions which does lift it above your average backyard movie. Most scenes work well and a mood is established but we never are shown the evil aliens who abduct the poor bastard at the film's opening. Due to budget limitations, mistakes are seen such as gaffer's tape holding up tarps or wardrobe that wasn't from '1989'.But these are small errors and overall it's a fun ride. The filmmakers have done a great job within their small budget. A nod to Steven King as well, as this story is taking place in Derry, Maine. Close to Castle Rock, maybe? It would be fun to see the the makers of this film advance to a X-Files style sci-fi movie next time instead of a sequel.
