Unoriginal and not particularly interesting low budget creature feature pitting a group of scientists against a genetically engineered beastie.
It's all been done before and will continue to be done long since. There are a few effective moments and creature effects, but overall it's a film which will only be really appreciated by diehard horror aficionados.
4/10
