A group of American soldiers (led by genre regulars Robert Beltran and Jeff Fahey), though, find little funny about this rocky beast who rips after their brothers-in-arms in vicious ways. And while the gory aftermath of the attacks are often quietly gruesome, the creature’s movements, themselves, often have the amusing hue of computer graphics.

But how one can not love a movie that allows The Blair Witch Project‘s Heather Donahue, as an aggressive yet kind military grunt, and Deep Space Nine‘s voluptuous Chase Masterson, as a trouble making, take no shit reporter, to go toe-to-toe is beyond me!
