    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The movie, which opened last week in Seattle and opens Friday in Los Angeles, isn't so much getting a release as an escape.

    Schifrin wisely holds off showing the monster -- because once the creature is revealed, the already shaky film takes a turn for the worse. The costume for the monster looks like a cross between a drugstore Halloween mask and leftover molds from the horror chestnut "Leprechaun." show more
