(1998) Progeny

I’m a huge fan of Brian Yuzna and pretty much any body horror film he’s involved with. Progeny isn’t as crazy gruesome as some of his other films but it’s still totally awesome.

The actual abduction scenes themselves did entertain me in a sort of b-horror way, which isn’t the same feeling I get watching films like Re-Animator. I enjoy genuinely impressive special makeup effects but I also enjoy the shitty stuff too. I just want to clarify that a great deal of this film is the former.

The ending is great, definitely cements this as an intelligent psychological horror in my mind. All-in-all, it’s nothing perfect, some shit looks stupid and some looks awesome. As a whole, I really dug it though. I didn’t get too hung up on the design work as I didn’t feel like the aliens detracted from the films plot.
