Review (Spoils):  Sciencists Clive Nicoli (Adrien Brody) and Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley) want to become famous so they skip on their active duties at N.E.R.D. and work secretly together to create the perfect creature. In between their romance they splice DNA from animals into one being and she adds her own blood into the mix for her own DNA (this is learnt later).  They work together and create their experiment and Elsa starts getting the nurturing instinct and starts to raise her like her own.  In the middle the creature grows and becomes attractive to Clive, we have some strange beast sex and Elsa learns this as she catches them. She starts to treat the creature for what it is and in the end it is a battle of the fittest of this crazy sex changing beast. In the film we have minor gore, minor blood and minor scares. We have some crazy beast sex scenes and some ok CGI effects.

Rating:  This movie falls under more Sci-fi than horror so it was hard to judge it.  So maybe it was not right for the site and review but the movie was entertaining none the less. Both Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley acting was very well done and you can feel for the characters but the monster itself fell flat to me. Yeah it’s a waterbreathing, sex changing, talon tailed, winged horny creature….sorry no fright there.

Review (Spoils):  I have heard about this movie a lot, all over the web so I thought I would finally check it out. Well have a simple plot ….. must get out of the maze of small rooms alive! We have a few traps in some of the rooms that add to the escape plot. We have some nice acid melting skin, some crunching body and even the odd stab. Blood is limited but the whole point of the film is seven strangers that do not know each other and they must work together to get out and survive.  The film moves great and it kept myself intrigued and gave me that Saw like feeling when watching the rooms. There is no real explanation for it all and that does not ruin the film.

Rating: Vincenzo Natali you now gained a new fan of this film. I was actually quit shock how well it flowed and the acting was very well done by most.  It’s a simple idea on film and it works.  I think Saw might have stolen the idea from this film and just took it to a new level.  Great stuff!
