Film Review: Animal (Parker Young & Amaury Nolasco) Brainless young people encounter death in the woods

Animal, with Parker Young, Amaury Nolasco, Jeremy Sumpter, Elizabeth Gillies & Keke Palmer.  Director, Brett Simmons.  I noticed Drew Barrymore was an executive producer; so was willing to give this an extra look see.  It sped along nicely with minimal loitering, a bit of unintentionally, humorous, interpersonal dramatics & a nice monster suit.

Young, of ABC’s recently canceled Suburgatory, is at the helm in the beginning; steering a bunch of brats into the woods for a daytime hike.  Except they don’t start back to the SUV in time, before darkness falls.  His television level talent & recognizable face gives the film a bit of flair.  Enough to keep one’s attention to the end.

Though there are no actual surprises or twists, the well-written script & interesting actors do manage to pull this off with enough bang for the buck.  Surprising, for a lackluster plot.  But it just goes to show you, that professionalism know-how can sometimes make the day.

I recommend the film.  A monster fest with buckets of blood.

  1. Your movie reviews are my favourite – my absolute favourite! It seems there’s just a little too much blood for me, though!

    • I don’t want to spoil there but there were a couple of scenes where it was obvious someone was throwing an actual bucket of faux blood, to depict a slaughter. So… avoid it, if that’s not your thing.
