Henge [Metamorphosis] (2011)

Honorable Mention This one is strange. And rather disturbing. A young man keeps having these weird seizures where he howls and jumps about uncontrollably.  It’s as if something is taking him over and it keeps getting worse. Then he starts transforming — at first just an arm or a leg — during these fits into…something. […]

KillerSaurus (2015)

Not every film has to be a huge film. Particularly not when it is a conceptually interesting creature feature.

Monster (2008)

The Asylum is one of those names which is instantly familiar to those of us who’ve spent far too much time in video stores. Their specialty is what are known as “Mockbusters,” movies which are more or less similar to current or upcoming hit movies and which usually feature roughly similar artwork to the real […]
