I didn't know this was the Astron 6/Manborg/The Editor guys... I'm kind of glad that I didn't actually because I went in expecting a real movie. So from the Astrong-6 guys I'd say this is fantastic, but as a real movie I'd say it's ALMOST fantastic. The design is great, I love all the monster stuff, the practical effects, even most of the music. The movie suffers from a lack of budget and not great lead actors however, and there's still some of that amateurish shooting and editing that mires down the movie and keeps it from really clicking. The mosters seem like they have decent design but they either didn't have the money to really pull them off or didn't have the confidence to show them on screen. Either way, what comes out ends up looking fake because it's so obvious that they're trying to hide it. Also, the third act falls into typical horror movie walking down hallways that feels like filler. It's a shame though because the dudes with the black triangle masks and all the Lovecraftian influence is really great. The climax itself is pretty decent though and there are a ton of bad horror movies that don't make it this far. I'd say this shows the signs of real talent, on the verge of something great.
So let's see if i can make it through one more movie tonight...
