Finally saw it. Probably the finest B movie/monster flick since 2006’s The Host.
Obviously, I don’t think the term “B movie” is derogatory. And, to recap, here are my criteria for what makes a B movie:
- Low budget.
- Largely unknown cast.
- Fits squarely within an established (and usually/formerly ignoble) genre.
- Exploits a contemporary social pressure point, e.g. crime, racism, “the Red Menace,” etc.
- Thinks subtlety is for garden parties and your gammy’s cotillion.
