release year:1997 genre:horror viewing setting:theater, 1/13/97 what I expected:a monster movie what I got:a pretty good monster movie
synopsis:The depths (and denizens) of a big, dark museum are haunted by a genetically-adaptable mutation from eons past.
impressions:This one gripped me right up til the end. Ultimately, it suffered from the same problem as many horror movies: expectation of seeing the monster is greater than actually seeing it. Still, I was entertained. It was nice to see a bunch of stupid characters get what they deserved - I wanted to cheer.
acting:Good to passable, nothing exceptional.
final word:Worth watching, and very spooky at times.
