As monster movies go, 'Primal' ends up being worthwhile through its own simplicity.

What Would Toto Watch?

Primal is neither original nor well polished, but it brings the gore like a respectable genre outing should.

Reeling Reviews

Writer/director/editor Josh Reed's low budget Australian horror film doesn't really take his audience anyplace new, but he does so with effective suspense, decent gore effects and some well placed humor.

FEARnet

A plot cobbled together from six other horror films -- and yet it's still a fun ride.

Little White Lies

Reed's film is a gory, grotesque trip to the savagery within - and yet another in the new wave of Ozploitation films that seem designed to repel as much as attract any tourists curious about the nation's picturesque outback.
