Hey, just wondering what you all thought of this movie if you've seen it. I saw it last night on a whim, and I have to say I was incredibly thankful
that it was actually a fairly scary movie! Most scary movies now are pretty lame, but this one delivered pretty well. If it weren't for a couple of
things, it would surely be among my favorite movies (Or at least scary ones.)
First of all, these things ripped the head off of a moose (apparently), and drug numerous animals and people into its cave. Could 2 scrawny looking
women really take on 3 of them? The first scene when the monster attacks is great, but as soon as it turns into a "girl power" fight scene, it
loses a lot of its momentum. I think the things being blind was sort of stupid considering all of the large animals it has killed, not to mention in
the beginning when it jumps on the girl and bites her perfectly in the neck.
My recommendation - Instead of the fight scenes, make them more "Chasey." That girl suddenly knowing martial arts and doing a neck break on the
creature - pretty lame. Make less creatures, but make them much stronger. They're cave monsters for Christ's sake, most animals that size are way
stronger than any human being (Baboons, monkeys, etc.)
I'm not saying I could do better or anything. Despite these things, it was still a great horror movie. Much better than any I've seen within the
last...well a very long time. Two thumbs up from me!
What did you all think?
