Rating of

Flawed adaptation of Dean Koont's novel. Promising start leads to a dull climax, with some chilling moments throughout.

Rating of

A small town found completely deserted by a local sheriff is found to be inhabited by an ancient creature than can absorb and mimic its prey. Rose McGowan must have felt right at home when she made Planet Terror because this is exactly the kind of daft B-movie horror it parodied. Dean Koontz scripted his typical brand of dumb schlock and manages to rip off John Carpenter's The Thing AND Prince Of Darkness along the way. Ben Affleck plays the bemused lawman in his usual blank and mechanical way but Peter O'Toole, clearly just in it for the paycheck, brings a necessary sense of humour to it and it's a short and easily digested slice of cinematic junk food. Plus it's so unbelievably stupid it's almost endearing...

"Affleck, you da bomb in Phantoms, yo!" This won't get praise for story, acting, special effects or much of anything. I think Dean Koontz is the poor man's Stephen King. They can't get King's books right; why should Koontz be different?
