CABAL CUT: We get a little more Decker, and quite a bit more redneck rampaging, but there is also inevitably a whole lot more Boone. Longer does not equal better, esp. in horror, and all this extra stuffing does not stop a turkey being a turkey.
The pic remains passable only as a work that is all style and no substance.
Disappointing make-up showcase disguised as a thriller.
Starts out with a bang, ends with a whimper.
Goofily entertaining, with an amusing turn by David Cronenberg.
...little more than an excuse to show off as many bizarre, misshapen beings as possible.
Although Barker knows a good, eerie setting when he sees one, he can't seem to do anything with it.
