Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, but the first 45min of the movie were downright awful. Even low end camcorders have some kind of picture stability on them! My head still hurts from the shaking camera! The camera even shook in what should have been standing still shots!!! The acting left much to be desired, and (at least the opening) story was crap. I did stay long enough to see the monster, and this may be the only redeeming quality of the movie. The special effects were good for their budget. Overall though, it was a case of over hype, and major let down.
