The staff and teenagers at a wilderness boot camp for problem teens are attacked by a vicious bio-mechanical alien. With nobody nearby to help them, they are forced to fight back on their own.
This is a just-about-okay flick that is better than the stuff produced by the Asylum, for instance (which I know isn’t saying much!)
Directed by Greg Kiefer, THIRST features almost-okay (or at least acceptable) CGI, but some of the cliched characters get pretty irritating, which affects the potential watchability and enjoyment of the movie – and I think it would have been better if the alien’s origin had been gone into.
If you fancy watching a bunch of one dimensional protagonists getting bumped off by a CGI critter that looks its best in the night scenes (but is featured in a lot of bright daylight scenes) this could well be the cliche-ridden flick for you!

You know, this is a movie I kept seeing in countless streaming libraries and never gave it a chance.
From what I gather from your review, this is absolutely no practical effects in this and it relies solely on cgi… which is sad. I can take a mix of the two but not all cgi. Hell even the movie anaconda was a mix of the two, which is actually tolerable.
But I will check it out.

It would’ve been a far better movie it it had used some practical effects, that’s for sure
