06.09.06Internet Aaron Stanford's sure come a long way from pining for Sigourney Weaver in Tadpole. It's cool though. I liked him in that and I like him in this. This is actually a really decent remake... some pretty good desert-is-so-creepy visuals and really driving home the nuclear testing after-effects idea that i don't even remember in the original. Maybe that was the backstory in the original but from what i remember they were just randomly terrorized by freaks and then fought back. I don't know if I buy that there's still all the 50s mannequins on the swings waiting to get blown up but... hey, it's a movie.

I particularly liked the dog in this. It's kind of like the end of Red Badge of Courage or whatever book they made me read about the two dogs and once one of them dies the other loses its will to live, except in this movie the other dog turns into a revenge machine and kills the Rubber Johnny knock-off. No diss to the effects though... KNB rocked the crap out of this movie... some first-rate effects going on here... it's also shot very well with great music and blah blah blah, it's good. i liked it.
