No doubt the bill for Energizers alone took up a big chunk of this gory clunker's $48-million budget.

The story comes from a million other movies (mainly Jaws and Alien), and it's completely and totally predictable.

Though based on an original and respected novel, Hyams' horror thriller comes across as a pastiche of the genre's conventions as evident in major pictures of the past two decades, such as Jaws and the first two Alien films.

Gore seekers need only to know the body count is high and the scares are cheap as director Peter Hyams shares his beast's repellent disregard for human life.

Miller turns every scene that requires the slightest display of emotion into an overblown Oscar clip, complete with piercing wails and glycerine tears.
