Pointless and almost no plot.
Crocodile movie with very little crocodile, screen deaths, but tried to
copy Lake Placid as much as possible.In order to understand the copy cat reference you'll have to watch it,
but that's a sin right there, as there is no reason to do so. Even tho
it is a short one, it seems to last forever, and the ending just goes
on and on. The acting is amateur, the camera is weak, almost no
crocodile action, and some gore coming from different directions.It was a complete waste of time. I don't get the comedy part so much, I
guess it just couldn't take itself serious. And the ending. That part
was truly unbearable!Cheers!

I was an extra in this film and have seen it twice at private showings.
Firstly, I doubt that an abundance of Oscars will be handed out for the
film (although the sound was pretty good). The actors, despite some
having a natural Liverpool / Yorkshire / Lancashire accents, could
speak fluently in the required English West-Country accent (something I
have been trying to do for the last thirty four years)! What is
brilliant about the story is that it is out of the ordinary. Having
slept mostly through "Turner", wondered how anyone could think up a
story such as "Gravity", I have also now become tired of "Game Boy
Movies". For those wondering, "Game Boy Movies" are for the lazy game
boy player - you don't need to push the buttons as it is done for you
on screen. Taking this into account, "The Hatching" is a brilliant
release. A "Horror/Comedy", it connects with the ordinary person - you
and me in a horror situation and therefore something that everyone can
relate to. Although there are a couple of OMG moments in it, the horror
is based more or less the same as seen in "Hot Fuzz" (a sort of
tongue-in-cheek affair). You can be laughing one minute and jumping out
of your seat the next. It is "Shakespearian" in that it has two plots.
Filmed on the Somerset Levels just before the floods, it should
hopefully help to put that area back on the map again. Originally
targeted at the 15 to 25 age group, I have seen it played to an
audience of the 55+ brigade and it got a great reception. A low budget
film, it was directed by Mike Anderson, a great "people person" who
formed a great bond with both actors and crew and deserves huge success
for this effort. No doubt, because it is low budget, it will have its
critics, but in my view, it is well worth going to see - excellent
