What's it about
A serial killer is let loose into the city by a mysterious organization to kill off aliens who’ve taken over human bodies so that they can still live.
Is it good movie?
Sometimes, it feels like these low budget movies can seem like a broken record. Their execution rarely lives up to the potential of what the movie offers. From writing to shooting, the movie was made in only nine weeks and that’s impressive and they really put some thought into it, it didn't turn out as good as it could’ve been.
On the eve of his execution, Hud (Sloan) is giving his last interview on tape where he recalls everything he’s gone through past and present to where he is now. Also throughout the movie, there are flashbacks leading up to how he came about to going after the aliens. This character and his story was what interested me, but there wasn’t much of it in the film. Everything else just fell flat.
Almost every aspect of the movie ranges from acceptable to "blah". There’d be one good fight scene, the next laughable. The direction for these fight scenes wasn't very good at all, I understand covering for lack of fighting experience but sometimes it was brutal. The rest of the film is handled in somewhat better fashion. The acting and special effects weren‘t great but acceptable. It’s cool that the score was composed by “Friday the 13th” composer Harry Manfredini but it barely registered with me. Yes, it’s impressive that the entire film was complete in just over two months, but the results only add up to a film that’s barely average.
Video / Audio
The sci-fi/horror genre’s isn't often my cup of tea, so I suppose this review can be taken with a grain of salt, but to this fellow, Disturbance is best left to being a rental if there’s nothing else to watch.
