Night Feeders

In the remote Southern wilderness a fiery meteor crashes to Earth and forever changes mankind's view of the Universe. For this "meteor" unleashes an infestation of nocturnal alien creatures with just one intention: to devour every warm-blooded life form on our planet. When night falls, four hapless deer hunters in search of some weekend fun and sport are about to discover how it feels to be the prey!

Most film critics will tell you that a martial arts film rises or falls solely on the strength of the fight scenes and the ability of the fighters in them. Likewise there are those who will swear that horror movies depend solely upon the believability of the monsters and the special effects, and whether or not they look convincing usually comes down to one factor-- how much money was spent upon them. Then there are those of us who, while we can't help but agree with the statement regarding martial arts films, still plant out flat little feet firmly on the ground and shout into the wind of prevailing thought. "NO! Sometimes you can have a really great little horror movie with MEDIOCRE SPECIAL EFFECTS!"

Well, the time has come for me to retract that statement. Having viewed NIGHT FEEDERS, a film made in and around Charlotte, North Carolina, with local effects talent that redefines the term "amateurish" and a budget that brings new meaning to the words "minisule", I must now say that, "Sometimes you can have a really great little horror film with PATHETIC special efects." Yep. All you need are some capable actors, a nifty story, and a director who can pull things together in an unusual manner and still make them work. That's a pretty tall order, but that's exactly what Writer & Director Jet Eller has managed to do in NIGHT FEEDERS.

The first thing that Eller does is realize that what his audience wants is action. So almost from the word "Go" that's what he gives us. We're introduced to our characters in only the sketchiest of terms.

I almost stopped watching this after seeing the horrible Playstation 1 level of CGI monsters in the film. They really suck and suck hard, the money to produce them would have been better spent on one decent creature suit. Fortunately as I was about to write a scathing review based on only the first 10 minutes of the film I noticed that someone had written a 5 star review and read it. Intrigued by what I read I decided to watch the rest of the film and am very glad I did so.

Writer/director Jet Eller understands well the limitations he's dealing with but its clearly determined to make the best, most entertaining and enjoyable movie possible on no real budget. Shot in Charlotte, NC using only local talent for all aspects of the production. As both a southerner and a film maker of the no budget sort myself I really appreciated his efforts here and applaud the results. The set up is simple a meteor crashes in the woods which turns out to be an egg/spore which infests said woods with dozens of voracious nocturnal monsters. Add to the mix a quartet on a hunting trip, an abusive couple and one park ranger and you've got your basic monster movie set up.

Now for me what always separates the crap films from the good ones is most often the writing and the writing here is surprisingly good. These folks all feel like characters I grew up around (Im from SC myself). They feel and act rather believably with good dialogue and characterizations. Also in a pleasant twist Jet doesn't play to conventions. Characters you are certain are going to be monster fodder from the get go aren't and visa versa. The pacing is excellent and Jet keeps the action moving understanding that this is the best way to keep his audience involved in such low budget fare. My hats off to all involved for creating such a surprisingly entertaining film. If you can get past the absolutely horrible cgi aliens there is a real gem waiting to be discovered here.

I really enjoyed this movie, and I'm not a big fan of cheesy movies! I can't exactly explain why I liked this movie, but I think I enjoyed the quirkiness of your average nobodies having the star roles. It made it more realistic and the actors loveable. I really enjoyed the big guy making it to the end of the movie. I thought he was going to be the first one to get it. I really thought he was going to get it while he was enjoying his stew! :) Big guy...you and your redneck buddies rock! Go get 'em!

...Have you ever seen a movie that was so bad, that it was good? Well almost good. This is a straight up B- movie. Bad sound, the acting was comical in it's attempt to be a horror flick, BUT, here's the thing; there is this very large, portly guy in this film that turns out to be the coolest dude! He is a bigger red neck than Larry the Cable Guy by a HUGE margin. But he is so easy going and you can't help but like the guy for his rather provincial wisdom right from the start. The rest of the actors weren't...well...terrible or anything --they didn't have a chance because of the obvious lack of budget for the film-- but you can tell right from the start that these guys are DEFINITELY NOT professional actors. The creatures were horribly done and cheap imagery didn't help...at all! But it was so bizarre, that I actually (almost) enjoyed this thing! But I would urge you to watch this just for the "Good Ol' Boy" that ends up being the most un-likeliest of heroes!

Shortly after a monster-infested meteor crashes and sics its passengers on an unsuspecting rural community, four friends head into the North Carolina woods for a weekend of huntin', fishin' drinkin' and good ol' boy bondin'. Their car becomes damaged when they hit a deer, so they decide to camp nearby and deal with the damage later.

What could possibly go wrong?

Despite the cheesy K-Mart CGI, largely indifferent special effects and a few plot holes (why, for example, when you know the baddies are afraid of the light, wouldn't you turn on every available light source and never EVER go near a darkened room or shadowy corner of the building?), I truly enjoyed this quirky, low budget redneck buddy film. The acting was competent and engaging and the storyline had some unique detours around the usual formula scripting for horror potboilers. There were, for example, no annoying randy teenage road trippers which I for one was delighted to find absent, and no screaming girls flitting helplessly through the woods wearing high-heels and a bikini. The hero was not the muscular stud able to arm-wrestle savage aliens into submission, and while there were plenty of victims they weren't the ones you had already numbered one-through-ten during the first fifteen minutes.

And it was funny!

Granted it was no Pegg and Frost production, but I found it had a similar ability to make the audience actually care about the characters while being amused by their antics.

If you aren't scouting for Techno-Stun cinematics or a cinematic metaphor of postmodern deconstructionism...whatever the hell that means...this is an entertaining way to spend a little over an hour. I gave it one extra star for effort :)
