These days low budget is no excuse for weak or bad horror films. Why George A. Romero made a career out of low budget horror films. So Almost Human is disappointing, a film that could have been good or at least passable and yet falls short. I’m not sure if they were going for found footage or realistic style filmmaking, either. It doesn’t really matter. Every year I watch at least one or two horror films that I don’t care for and they trick me with promising storylines.
Seth is this douche bag who loses his friend Mark to a big flash of blue light. Years later Mark-wait no, a being inhabiting Mark-returns to slaughter people because why not, I guess? Things spiral from there. The gore at least makes events less boring, and the film rips off fascinating and better horror films in the process. Also I hated the ending. Stupid movie is stupid.
