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.

Made it thru first half of this very boring, poorly written, poorly acted movie. Three friends come upon an old mansion while playing a paintball game. And oh are they stupid. Every thing they do is stupid. The plot might have made a good movie - Crazy scientist trying to find a cure to his own bacteria gone wild. But like I said, all is done poorly. Did I mention that the photography is absolutely terrible. Didn't bother to watch the rest of this awful movie. I wasted my time and money. Don't waste yours.

This is the worse movie I have seen in a long time, I love my Amazon web site but I am sorry that people are suckered into watching such a bad movie. Amazon should not even charge to rent this movie it is so bad. Worse than B should be F for failed . I want my $1.99 back.

Not much CGI in this one. Only when necessary. Low budget, bad acting but cool for a creep stay at home and eat popcorn type of day.

I love Brett Piper's films! The guy knows how to make the best of a tiny budget. BACTERIUM is no exception. With it's experiment-gone-horribly-wrong idea used to usher in a nice, biological blob-monster. If you enjoy THE BLOB (50s or 80s version), BEWARE THE BLOB!, CALTIKI, THE CRAWLING EYE, or other such films, then you can't go wrong here. Piper works wonders w/ his non-CGI creature, culminating in an oozing, explosive (implosive?) finale. Unfortunately, there is a distinct lack of Misty Mundae, but she can't be in everything...

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.
