Thirst (2015)

Alien critter alert!
Toothy-faced beastie!

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!

The poster always makes the film look better, right?

Shame the creature in the movie wasn't as cool as this original design

  1. 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.
