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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

This is a good violent killer film where axes, chainsaws, shot guns and a variety of tools are used. It's obviously low budget but the blood and killing action looks quite good. Read morePublished 20 months ago by James N Simpson
