A Re-Review of "Phantoms" from 1998

Been slow around here lately due to a rather psychotic insomnia spell. I'm learning to make it work for me though. Now where was I? Ah yes, the ultra special re-review of "Phantoms", one of my fave movies. The reason this is so special is because I got to thinking about what Dean Koontz envisioned in his mind. The creature in this movie was petroleum based and intelligent. It could mimic humans and take on different forms. It was made up of the DNA of all animals and minerals, metals, etc. So if someone were to do some deep drilling and strike oil they could possibly run into this beast. Imagine that! That could be a possible environmental message. It is possible in fact. I'll use an example I'm sure you've all heard about before. The incident at Chernobyl with a nuclear meltdown caused some seriously scary stuff to happen, including fish tails growing on the backs of people. Why? Because we share 98% of all our DNA with other creatures. This creature really could exist! Shape shifters are a new idea because nature doesn't have any but you never know. New species are showing up all the time. This movie has a great basis for the monster when you research the science behind it and the feel of the whole thing was just like a cool horror movie that starts at some isolated cabin near a small town in the middle of the wilderness. The EFX get really good after a bit of suspense build-up which really pays off. I like how it makes you wonder what's going to happen and then when the turning point does arise they don't skimp on anything. We see the monster a lot and it's gratuitous. It was said to have killed off ancient civilizations and been worshiped as a deity. The cast was great and they worked together very well. In my eyes this would be a truly horrific encounter that you would be lucky to survive.
