This review is from: Surviving Evil [DVD]  (DVD)
A film crew out in the Philippines get attacked by vampiric shape~shifters, who're out to snatch pregnant women, so that they can corrupt their fetuses and continue their race of evil, ugly, were~monkey dudes..
Low budget British co~production, filmed in Durban, that is much more entertaining than you would expect, looking at the box. Takes a little while to get going but once it does, it's fairly action packed with some effective monster make~up and silliness. It's biggest flaw probably being that half of the cast are a bunch of whinging duffers. There's a sub plot involving Japanese gold and ultimately, the really nasty idea of vicious creatures that can change into anything, hunting you down in a jungle, is never fully explored but for it's relatively short run time, I had a lot of fun watching this and I've certainly seen much worse. The similarities made by other reviewers to Surviving Evil and The Descent are quite accurate, albeit Marshall's effort is superior. No nudity but some cheap, grisly moments should please horror fans and Zane, the films biggest star, gives a very relaxed performance. Against its peers I'd give it 3.5/5.
