The film has stunning visuals and expert creature creation but fails when it comes to executing feeling, character, and any kind of a plot. It spent too much time trying to be The Thing, and forgot to be itself.
Probably one of the most fun and tongue-in-cheek festivals in Prague. From Tuesday 28/02 – Sunday 05/03, the Shockproof Film Festival (Festival otrlého diváka) is dedicated to filth, schlock, comedy, horror, B-grade, X-rated – the most bizarre titles from ancient cult classics to present day. In its 13th year, the festival has a whole new host of titles to offer the eager cinema goer, as well as some old faithfuls. It’s an insanely interactive festival. Almost like a 21st century rebirth of the classic ‘Cinema of Attractions’.
