OriginalBy Whipster (663 reviews) from Shropshire , 11 Jan 2010A refreshing change to have an original and decently executed horror movie. Fairly simplistic storyline, but it works well for that. Has a similar feel to one of the 'monster' episodes from The X-files. Believable acting certainly helps the action to flow. The creatures themselves are slightly panto horse but nasty enough in what they do, rather than in how they look. Nicely dark ending too. Enjoyable. 4 star.
somthing defferntBy bullseye (8 reviews) from colchester , 14 Dec 2009not many films are like this, set in western times, none CGI monsters and great moustaches.
Yes it is alittle slow at times, but I think it made up for it with the suspense of waiting for the monsters to attack.
I would say watch this and just enjoy somthing deffernt then just teenagers getting killed by some killer in a mask.
Beautifully shot, original westernBy a customer from Chipping Norton , 01 Dec 2009The first thing that stands out in this western is the scenery, dwarfing the characters and isolating them, then the second pleasant surprise is the characters themselves. Pleasant and likeable with subtle performances, the leads ground this faintly ludicrous premise and get you on side throughout... and as they ride across the prairies and through forests their plight becomes more fragile and their hopes dwindle making their fortunes at time unbearable.
It owes far more to the Western genre than standard horror movie stylings, which may explain some people's disappointment, but this is its strength, John Ford with a hint Sam Raimi. Irresistible.
okBy maggles (2 reviews) from Oxford , 14 Nov 2009This movie was just ok I managed to watch the whole movie without falling to sleep.
Like I say it was watchable not not great.
dig a holeBy mark from whitehaven, cumbria , 28 Sep 2009what a load of cack, wish i'd watched 'the borrowers' instead, the little people who live in the skirting board would have been a lot more interesting than this.
It starts off interestingly enough, but that is because you don't know what the 'burrowers' are, when you find out youl'll wish you hadn't, nice little twist at the end, but not worth enduring the whole film for.
