Brief Synopsis – The population of a very small town in Nevada is terrorized by creatures that move and attack from under the ground.

My Take on it – Anyone who knows me, is aware of the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of horror movies. So when this movie was recommended to me, I hesistated at first but then decided that it would be a good opportunity to try one out because it seemed like a fun choice.

It really was fun watching this movie mainly due to the fact that it doesn’t seem to take itself very serious.

I loved that the creatures looked very similar to the sand creatures in Dune (1984), so I didn’t find them to be enturely menacing.

The casting of Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross and Fred Ward was great because they all seem perfecting cast against type.

Although it’s silly, I had a ball with it.

Bottom Line – Felt more like it was spoofing horror movies instead of actually being one.  Bacon, Gross and Ward are all great here as crazy hicks. Very fun movie. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy

  3. This one was such a pleasant surprise to me the first time I watched it. Like you said, it’s silly, but also a lot of fun. So glad we feel the same about it! See–not ALL horror is so bad. 😉 Great review!
