Movie Reviews

Can't Beat That Meat!
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 08/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In a small rural company town where just about everyone raises cattle for the local meat company, strange things have started to happen. Kids out cow tipping one night discover a dead cow. Soon there are others. The new local vet gets called in to look at the mysterious deaths. He can not see any problem until what looks like a normal parasite comes in contact with a drop of his blood. It grows and he sends it of for testing.

Soon the vet is convinced that something is very wrong and the cattle should be quarantined, an idea not met with much approval by the locals. Unfortunately the vet has a reputation for yelling fire prematurely.

The plot develops nicely and the suspense builds steadily. Effects and acting are better than most. The ending leaves a little unanswered but most won't notice it. All in all it was a very nice tribute to the great monster films of a few decades ago. Check it out."
Enjoy That Steak While You Still Can
K. Fontenot | The Bayou State | 05/21/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If any film can convince you to become a vegetarian, "Larva" is the flick. I actually saw this little spooker about a year ago, but it wasn't until I caught up with it on SciFi recently that I decided to review it. Starring the well-on-his-way to B-movie greatness Vincent Ventresca, goddess Rachel Hunter and William Forsythe, "Larva" is the cuddly tale of the small town of Host, where the local meat plant is testing new hormones in the feed for the local cattle. Little do the townspeople know, but there's a parasite in the feed, and once inside the cattle they grow, eventually bursting out of their host and into the world. They look for any source of blood, and get bigger with each meal. It's sort of like the critters in the first "Critters" flick. Unlike the "Critters," they look like a cross between a bat and a slug, making for a wickedly funny-looking monster.

Ventresca, along with a few buddies, does his best to stop the parasites from escaping into the food chain. How does he do it? Does he succeed? Check this flick out to see if he's successful.

It's a top-notch B-flick, intentionally trying to be serious and fun at the same time. The effects are somewhat silly, but the actors try very hard to make them believable. The story moves at a nice trot, and it never really gets boring or sluggish.

If you want to see an above average B-spooker, pick up "Larva." Fans of the genre will get most of the nods to other films, but you don't have to have a deep knowledge of bad flicks to grasp the humor and the horror of "Larva.""
Host Tender Meats - YUK
Emily R. Jarrell | Newport News, VA United States | 08/26/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The name of the company (Host Tender Meats) is gross enough considering this is a horror film. Believe me, this movie is sure to satisfy any gore hound, just please give it 40 minutes, then the s**t hits the fan literally. Please do not eat anything that involves cow meat while watching, it will make you ill to your stomach."
Awesome Movie
J. Hargraves | 12/27/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I think this movie was really good! Somewhat unrealistic, I mean larva growing bones and turning into bat looking creatures is funny and not real. The thing that puzzles me is why are there hundreds of larva crawling into a person and only one of them evolves and comes out of the person??? The real highlight was watching my ex have his brains splattered on the window in a SUV - PRICELESS! Yeah for Milo's brains (or lack of them) being lost on the window!!! If you don't know anyone in this movie, I wouldn't bother with it...I just give it a 4 star because when you get left for a 15 year old and get treated like dirt, it's always great to see the person killed (even if only in a movie) a month or so later!"
