review by
Mike Haberfelner

Ginger's (Sparkle Soojian) pretty much on a date from hell with Trevor (Israel Ledesma), a guy absolutely full of himself since he owns a muscle car - but who has little answers when the car breaks down other than walk to the next garage. And that garage is run by Felix (Michael Wainwright), an Afghanistan veteran with a prosthetic leg and not exactly a likeable personality. However, he claims to have exactly the spare part Trevor's car needs, to lure him in the back and then kill him. And while Ginger waits impatiently in the front, Felix feeds Trevor to Daisy, the human-sized bat-like creature who saved him back in Afghanistan and whom he has taken care of ever since. Then Felix sics Daisy on Ginger as well ...

Jerry's (Manuel Ramirez) is worried because his son has vanished into thin air, so he packs his son's best friend Zero (Wade Pierson), and the two make it to the desert town he was last seen, and before long land in Felix' garage. And it doesn't take them long to suspect Felix to have something to do with the son's disappearance, either, but suspicion alone will get them nowhere. However, the only one who can let them in on Felix' secret monster is the alcoholic priest (Matt Macedo), And drunk as he is he's not exactly the most reliable of witnesses. And yet, when they check out Felix' garage that night and find the badly bruised yet still alive body of Ginger, they figure there might be something to the priest's stories ...


A pretty fun creature feature, and one that doesn't just blindly follow a genre formula but takes some time to build up interesting characters and add some actual mystery to the proceedings. That said though, the directorial effort is totally genre-savvy in the best possible way, setting all the suspense sequences and jump scares in all the right moments and never shying away from violence, while the titular monster comes across as genuinely scary. And the outcome of all of this is pretty cool genre entertainment.
