A good movie

5 years ago at Dec 9 12:43
When I was a kid back in France, when I used to go to the videostore to rent some videos, I would always get petrified by the VHS cover of this movie. I was just 10 years old or something like that and I thought there was something really unsettling about it. Eventually, it took me about 8 more years to finally get the nerves to watch it and, eventually, it was not as hardcore as I thought it woul... read more

" Peter Jackson's low-budget horror-splatter-gore fest about an alien invasion movie where people on an island has been eaten by ugly-looking creatures from outer space who live inside a spaceship disguised as a normal-looking house. One of the better things with this film is that it takes place in daylight so that one can cherish all the blood effects and ugly make-up without it being hidden in the dark. Peter Jackson play one of the heroes too and even survives a fall from a cliff getting his b"

" It's not as insanely fun as Dead Alive or as epic as The Lord Of The Rings, but Peter Jackson's first foray into filmmaking is still a greatly fun, gore soaked, inventive and funny little knock out."

"2/9 The amateurishness and cheapness at the first look seemed very intriguing, but the plot didn't have anything going on as it went on. The humor especially with Peter Jackson's character Derek tries too hard, the shootout-action was dull and the whole movie just formed into this incoherent mess at the end. Some of the effects were fine. The head cracked open with brains coming out was a pretty little thing and the headshot at the beginning wasn't bad either. Stuff like that was okay all aroun"
