      Mark H. Harris Black Horror Movies With the words "bone" and "snatch" in the title, though, I was expecting a lot more porn. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 3, 2020 Full Review Frank Swietek One Guy's Opinion Rated: 1/5 Jan 20, 2008 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Uma idia imbecil protagonizada por atores sem carisma e dirigida com espetacular incompetncia. Rated: 1/5 Mar 4, 2006 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 2/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Anton Bitel Movie Gazette Highly derivative, but still watchable, desert-set creature feature which will get your pet aardvark drooling.

      Jacob W This is one of the more creative monsters to make their way to a b-movie "creature feature". The movie definitely has its dull moments but the monster is legitimately unsettling and there are some genuinely scary and brutal moments for anyone who likes creature features. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I quite enjoyed it. It was an interesting take on the spirit-force idea, and sits in the same corny/cult space, but probably just falls a little short overall. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member At first it seemed like this was going to be a winner. A team searches the African desert for a few missing people, only to find their bones picked clean. Later on we find out that the desert is infested with man-eating ants which, in order to hunt and survive, swarm up along with human remains, creating some sort of a zombified creature. Although an interesting concept, it was poorly executed. The characters are only barely exposed to danger, we hardly even get a good look of the creature, and generally the plot was extremely slow-paced and boring. Most of the time we just witness our main characters traveling through the desert, chatting, and staying up during the night. As for the special effects, the monster, and the ants along with it, were done mostly in bad CGI and everything looked extremely fake. The only visually appealing thing here was the desert shooting location. Overall this one was a borefest, and a waste of an interesting concept. Don't waste your time. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Kinda strange, not very scary, and not very good acting. But it's watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member very great horror film! not very gory.. but had much blood in it!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member The concept of the film has potential, but really low-budget special effects hinder it into C movie lameness. The movie could have been much scarier with better visuals of the monster, but like I said- shockingly low budget on that front! It is cool to see this movie set in the S. African desert, as the landscapes are interesting. I give it 1 star for the setting, and the potential of the plot.... and 1/2 star for fairly descent acting, plus Rachel Shelley is hot. Obviously much more could have been done to this film to make it better. At the end, it looks like another one of the monster's eggs is being transported by Rachel in the taxi- could this lead to a Snatcher II? We can only anticipate!
