Warring Alien and Predator races descend on a rural Colorado town, where unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival. (IMDb)
Holy Colorado, the bloody devastation brought upon this poor ol’ small town with its sheriff and diner and high school pool.. two-thirds in, the power’s out and everyone we’ve met is getting ripped apart. “See? No monsters.” Damn. Say what you want about the rest of the film (the character writing is pretty weak and cheesy; that butt shot was definitely unnecessary), but the horror (not just from the monsters–see the climax), in its bold, unrelenting, and impartial nature, is quite effective.
6.5/10 (Alright)
CREEPY QUOTE:
Kelly O’Brien: You know, when I was your age, I used to have these awful nightmares.
Molly: It was real.
