Better than I expected, less than I hoped for.5/10
Horror is my favorite genre of movies, unfortunately for me, because there really just aren't that many good, watchable, horror movies produced and released - by watchable, I mean it holds your attention enough you WANT to see what happens, and you're not just watching it because you don't want to turn it off (which I've done, a lot) halfway through because it sucks so bad it just isn't entertainment, it's torture. (An idea for a horror movie maybe?Torture as in strapped to a chair and made to watch horrible horror movies with your eyelids taped open) This held my interest
enough to watch it straight through, mostly because certain scenes had great potential, but it was never realized. There isn't any gore, but there really is a creep factor - the "Monster Hunter" comes off at first as an eccentric man, perhaps a bit (well, a lot) fixated on the subject - the 2 guys who are making the film are believable, and play themselveswell. The idea behind it is kind of cool, but there just aren't enough scenes (none, really) that will make you jump out of your chair, leave the lights on when you go to bed, or make the hair rise on the back of your neck. It's a watchable movie, certainly worth the $2.99 rental on Amazon, but not good enough to see in a theater. The ending of the movie had some good potential, but, it ends with lots of unresolved questions. Bottom line: Unambitious, had a lot of unrealized potential, but it still entertaining. Don't rent it expecting to be totally freaked out - it just really isn't that kind of movie, but interesting enough to sit through. The film makers give the impression that they couldn't decide how to end it, and as a result, it had potential to be great ending, but they just didn't flesh it out enough. I like indie horror movies - some are awesome - WER, an indie flick, was one of the best werewolf movies I've seen in recent years for example, but this just is middle of the road.
