      Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel Too many of the arguments are whispered, too many settings are missing the horrific atmosphere the movie requires. Rated: 2/5 Dec 19, 2006 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Good old fashioned special effects mixed with wicked gore, and a compelling story make "Altered" a great follow-up from the "Blair Witch" creators... Rated: 3/4 Aug 19, 2007 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...generally comes off as an engaging and genuinely creepy little horror flick... Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 18, 2007 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com Devoted genre fans should feel free to give it a rental, but don't expect to be blown away.

      Audience Member Altered (2006). In brief, simply yet thoroughly enjoyable B-movie schlock fest of the highest order. Take one part good ol' boys, fold in a modern bromance and sprinkling of the bonds of brotherhood, add one guy in rubber suit (oops, I mean, menacing alien), add a dash of damsel in distress and wise (albeit brief) old sage, bake for 88-minutes at moderate to high heat, serve and enjoy. Feeds a full family expecting the movie equivalent of fast food. Pairs exceptionally well with a few cans of suds, or "harder" spirits. (Based on recipe of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", as modified by "Aliens" series, and liberally influenced by all horror-themed shack-in-the-woods movies you've seen before. Late night fare only. Satisfying.) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member A good take on an alien incounter. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A very well done movie about five friends and how their lives were changed after they were abducted by aliens some years before and the aliens have now returned. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member I was really impressed with how this movie turned out given it's budget. It's exciting and suspenseful. The acting is really good as each character is totally believable. It takes a standard horror trope and adds a unique spin to it. The length of the movie was fine as it never got tired or boring (that says a lot about the pacing too). It's not a movie that will scary you, but it's definitely suspenseful and intriguing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member If you just want to watch a very good sci-fi / horror movie this is your movie. How is this so unknown? I had never even heard of it until I picked up a DVD with three other movies that I like and this was the fourth movie. After watching it I must say that I had a good time watching it. The story is pretty clever and the acting is pretty good. However if you don't like movies with a lot of swearing look elsewhere. This is a hard R for sure. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrated alien film with great practical effects Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/19/18 Full Review Read all reviews
