In the recent wave of dull and boring horror movies which have come out recently this was a delight to watch. You have great direction and a story that has so much bundled up inside it should keep everybody happy. When this came out originally I didn't like it much; though twenty years later, I loved it. There are some nice effects courtesy of Stan Winston. I recommend everybody should give this a try. Expand

Not bad for another "large inherently nasty predator that eats scientists" movie. Not a perfect translation of the book....where is Penderghast, for example? But far better than I expected, and superior to recent efforts in the same genre Not bad for another "large inherently nasty predator that eats scientists" movie. Not a perfect translation of the book....where is Penderghast, for example? But far better than I expected, and superior to recent efforts in the same genre such as "The Cave." The cinematography, clever lighting, and surprisingly robust score add to the experience of a movie that could have been very, very bad in different hands. Just forget it's based on the book and enjoy for its own merits. Expand

I remember that scrolling across the screen when I saw the trailer for this underrated creature flick. It centers around a scientist at a museum played by a feisty Penelope Anne Miller and a cop played by Tom Sizemore that find themselves under attack by a monster in a museum. The movie is overly entertaining with great creature design and nifty special effects for the time. Sadly, the film was panned by critics and floundered at the box office. But it's since found a deserved cult following. The film can feel generic at points but it's super fun and even a little scary.

Budget: $50M
Box Office: $48M

8.25/10
