This is a clunker the whole way through. The premise has been done a thousand times before (how many times can I watch some people run through the woods with aliens chasing them?), the stereotypes were lazy and unoriginal, and the jokes were annoying at best. With all that in mind, this also isn’t the worst movie ever made. It’s a little worse than a middle-of-the-roader. I gave it my full attention for about 20 minutes, then played Enchanted Cave 2 on Steam for the rest of it (ps, great game if you’re looking for something with a What-If-Diablo-Were-For-NES kind of feel). The tunnel was the scariest scene, which came early in the movie, and that was only effective because it was exactly like the scary tunnel scene from 28 Days Later. Big pass, but if you’re super bored and want to hear a lot of yelling, could be good for a rainy afternoon.
