    Animal (2014)



    Not a bad monster movie BUT don't expect anything new here. It's a lot like FEAST, only not as good. People find themselves battling this creature (the animal) in a cabin that they've barricaded...with a lot of loose spots. So you have this thing circling the cabin every now and then while the people inside argue with each other because they're scared...been done dozens of times. Some good jump scares, decent gore, and a cool looking animal made it OK...but for me once was enough.

    Thought it was okay, probably end up giving it a 5. Decent production values and monster, but like you said everything else is pretty standard and cliche. The monster reminded me of some kind half bird half wolf-type creature, like a Bird Wolf or a Were Bird

    It stayed practical for the most part, especially when it came to the monster. From what I can remember the only noticeable CG used was maybe with some blood Sadly being a Chiller Film, it's not exactly as gory as it should be

    Sounds like my kind of film. Cool monster, cabin, some gore... I'm sure I can look passed the cliche aspects of it.

    Replace "some" gore with "barely any"

    This was one of those frustrating movies for me. I didn't think that the creature effects were all that bad.. the only thing that looked awkward for me was the mouth (don't get me wrong I liked the teeth, but the way that the jaw was sculpted made the sides of the mouth open all of the time.. which could have made for some cool sloppy slimy tongue wagging or even some ultra messy feasting on corpses.. but alas they did neither of these things.) I also thought that there were a few missed opportunities for interesting plot development/twists. Why did they go out of their way to make a scene about discovering the mysterious Marine's discarded backpack.. carry it with them, but then ultimately just drop it erroneously. Then when they got to the cabin there was a lot of chatter like, "Don't you get it? Those creatures were herding us to this location. Why would they do that?" Those conversations never really went anywhere. Also the creatures obviously knew more about the layout of the cabin than the victims.. which could have been addressed.. but the victims never really picked up on that.

    TL, DR - I agree with the posts above, added a few of my own frustrations with the plot/characters. In the end it was a so-so creature feature, worth a view if you are looking for something to not really think about.

    This flick didn't bring anything new to the table...had potential but ultimately failed in the end.
