Rise Of The Animals

A fun film, and a good time waster with puppets and gore.

The story has already been done before.


Rise of the Animals
Brain Damage Films

At this very moment, Rise of the Animals is most likely the coolest movie out there. Rise of the Animals, is an awesomely hilarious, and gory combination of 1970s killer animal films such as Day of the Animals and the Food of the Gods.

The twist on this film is that on films such as Day of the Animals, the film makers obviously used real trained animals throughout the movie as to where in Rise of the Animals they only used them for the necessary scenes.

In this movie, the makers behind it want you to know that it was obviously put together on fumes. Using real animals to a minimum and instead bringing in a wonderful assortment of puppets to do all the horror bits. This film does have some CGI, and I have to admit that it’s pretty bad, but once you get into the film, it’s well worth looking over.

The acting isn’t the greatest either, but like I said, you won’t care once you settle in to the film. Expect lot’s of gore, and major blood, this movie has so much blood and body parts in it that you’ll just end up waiting for the dude who is cued to throw the bucket of blood on the actor to do his job.

If you want to see a movie that has the feel of 1970s animals gone wild horror and a terrible SyFy Channel Saturday night movie all rolled in to one, then this is the film for you. I suggest that you add this movie to your watch list.
