Pretty Good!

Well, call me odd but I enjoyed Pod very much. On reading the other reviews for this film I realise that leaves me in the minority but I like what I like.

As others have pointed out the first half of this short-ish movie (76 minutes run time) is primarily conflict and dialogue between three siblings, each of which have their own baggage. However, while some may find that to be a drag and want to get straight to the beastie the film is named for, I lapped it up.

Until said beastie hits the screen Pod plays out like a psychological drama. Martin, an ex soldier with a history of emotional illness and delusions, appears to have gone completely over the edge when he insists he has captured a murderous alien creature and locked it in his basement. Older brother Ed, a psychologist, and Lyla, the vulnerable younger sister show up to try and coax Martin into getting some much needed help.

Considering the subject matter and the circumstances the tension between these three characters is, to me, believable and well crafted. The characters have depth, the dialogue was terrific and while the shadowy Smith, who shows up toward the end of the film is perhaps, deliberately bland, being some kind of military spook, I really enjoyed the family members and their dynamics. Brian Morvant and Lauren Ashley Carter's performances were both stand outs.

As for Pod himself, well.. he was pretty cool though we've seen his ilk before on the X Files and elsewhere. Nonetheless, i don't believe this movie was intended to be just a horror/sci-fi flick. That may well be why many reviewers got bored with the it; too much angst and talk and not enough CGI and gore.

For a suspense/horror flick with some intelligence you could do a lot worse than Pod.

Horrible movie

This is an extremely irritating movie to watch. Nothing but anger, shouting and screaming the whole way through! Leaves you feeling very negative and angry with a bitter taste in your mouth! I love horrors but this movie left me feeling terrible after watching it. If you love people arguing and shouting at each other all the way through the movie then this is for you. Otherwise don't bother watching it as it will spoil your evening. Not entertaining at all! Now I need a good comedy to get my mood back to normal. Hated it from start to finish! So much anger in one movie is far too much to handle. No suspense at all. It makes the viewer also feel angry and not scary at all. Would not recommend this movie to anyone!

Loss of time

Advertising like this is suspense like in the X-files I was very disappointed. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not so often I think of a movie that bad but the acting of the crazy brother was making me yawn. The acting is done by 3 people (in the end one man for a short moment). All of them can be forgotten. Also this movie. The story is about a guy who is mentally sick and his family is coming to help him. But he stays crazy and talking about a complot and a Pod. This is locked up by him. He kills him selve because nobody believes him. They got killed and leaves a kind of open end which is nothing. I needed to write something about this movie since it is one of the worst I have ever seen.
