Caveo is est valde nocens! The Thing Below is an pathetically cheap looking CGI tentacle monster-alien-mutant something or the other. .
That gets loose in a oil rig/secret military lab/corporate research facility. .
Kills a bunch of (stupid) people. .
Forcing the military-government-corporate goons running the project-lab-insane asylum to send yet other people into the mutant-alien-crazed monster's lair. .
Which the hack filmmakers decide is excuse enough for a gratuitous stripper scene. .
Did I mention this scene stretches on for a while. .
Before the monster starts killing yet more people. .
Sadly THE THING BELOW plays like an dreadful, ineffective, plodding, illogical, and utterly pointless knock-off of DEEP EVIL. .
This movie is the bastard child of inbred morons from the planet Ludicrous. It's bad enough the premise is weak and clichéd but the plot, such as it is, is ill defined and never clearly developed within the movie itself. Considering the endless reams of inane exposition the characters bring the movie to a screeching halt to recite the lack of
proper coherent and lucid plot and character development is inexcusable. If bad movies were a medieval village THE THING BELOW would be a murdered leper buried in the village dung heap. Recommended only for those cynical few who never believe reviewers when we say a movie is utter gobshite.
Caveat Emptor THE THING BELOW is available on: DVD
# End of Line
