How this fun monster flick flopped at the box office and that p.o.s silent hill hit 1 I will never know... It hit the UK a week ago and I just saw it. Brilliant. My favourite horror film since Dawn 04. Gunn is the guy Eli Roth wishes he was. Funny and horrific in equal measure, it is a hell of a lot of fun. A great and game cast, especially Fillion, the leading lady and her husband. You feel for him as he turns into a monster yet who still loves his wife, and her since she didn't marry him purely out of being a gold digger. It's a good relationship even as it disintegrates there is some sort of bond. On another board a long time ago I posted a speculative post on the Thing's origin, and speculated that the Thing was actually a living virus which took over planets by absortion. And that's what this basically is, and I was at one point thinking of making a zombie movie where the zombies are caused by parasites. this is the second horror idea I have had that's been made into a movie (other being Skinwalkers), so that is disheartening, but at the same time at least it makes me sure I have decent ideas now and again. Im not *****ing though especially when it come out this good, its just one of those things I know others here can understand. Just got to sit down and write the full script in future Also two AWESOME horror references I caught: a shop called R J MACREADY, and a score lifted from Predator as they go hunt the creature in the forrest! I loved that. I smell a sequel, too hopefully....he had sex with her shortly after becoming infected, and the origin made clear that he can implant embros by making his victims pregnant. Hmm... fantastic fun though.
