The year is 1974 and a NSA agent injects himself with the blood of a dying werewolf. He is then placed in suspended animation
by the Government. Now decades later the Goverment thaws him and grafts a metal exo-skeleton ontop of his skin to make the
ulitmate weapon, (brillant!) But the creature escapes captivity and goes on the rampage within the walls of the secret compound.
I must admit I wasn't expecting much when I first rented this movie, but the concept of a metal covered werewolf is a unique
twist on an old story. Also the effects were very good. But if your not into werewolf movies then you may not like Metalbeast.
I GIVE IT (7 STARS)
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)
+ CONCEPT (I always give kudos to an original or a new twist on an old concept)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The Metalbeast was just plan cool)
+ ATMOSPHERE (It has spooky atmosphere with substance)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)
- SLOW (It has several places of slow peroids while they build up suspense, a little too long at times)
- FAN BASED (If you are not a fan of horror or werewolf movies then steer clear of PROJECT: METALBEAST)
