    ★★★

    This movie went straight to DVD at least here in Australia and you can see why. The first movie was pretty good at the time and this one is ok but lacking the budget. In saying that they did manage some great effects, it just lacked the thrill of the first. Christian Slater and Peter Facinelli were ok but didn't have to do too much. Watchable

    ★★★

    This independent little horror/comedy is actually quite well done if not that original. Creature features like this are becoming commonplace but at least this was quite entertaining. The only "name" actors that appear which I knew anyway were Lance Henriksen and Clifton Collins Jnr. its well worth a watch for something a bit different.

    ★★★½

    This was one of the better films from this type of hand held camera genre,It was quite well done by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse,these guys probably did not have much of a budget but managed to make a tense horror that for the first half people might think they have been duped but believe me it builds up and then is pretty fast paced,like the locales also,will look for future entries from these two film-makers.

    ★★★★

    I spent this past weekend watching a lot of the Academy nominated films and this Independent film deserves any accolades it gets. This film about life in the projects in Orlando, Florida is great on all levels with the acting performance of Willem Dafoe as the Motel Manager earning him a Best Actor nomination. The little girl Brooklynn Prince is very good considering its her first major film role. Beautifully filmed by Sean Baker whos previous film "Tangerine" I really enjoyed. Highly recommended
