Devil's Gate

Post by WraithApe » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:47 pm

The X-Files for dummies, with fake Scully leading the investigation. This alien invasion story is so full of cliches, it's straining at the seams; absolutely nothing you haven't seen a hundred times before. The effects are actually OK, but the script... wow. One choice quote: "my grandfather used to be proud of being one sixteenth Cherokee; will they be proud of being one sixteenth human?" It's facepalm central. 4/10

I liked this. It was a bit cliched but there aren't enough Monster movies at FF. I thought it had an H P Lovecraft vibe. Color out of space or Dunwich Horror are both backwoods creature stories
