Primal Rage Review (2018)


Primal Rage is a big foot horror with a twist.

The Story

Ashley and Max Carr are married couple who found themselves lost in the forest of Pacific Northwest.  Soon they found themselves terrorized by a mysterious creature in the woods.  Hopelessly trying to survive, with a handful of unsavory locals, they must fight back against this monster in a desperate battle of life or death.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

Simple put, Primal Rage is about big foot.  There are quite a bit of big foot horror films already out there, but this one is bit different.  This big foot is not an ordinary big foot.

The movie starts out well.  The action and suspense start right away and we get to see the mysterious big foot create very early in the movie.  I am not sure if this is good thing or bad thing.  But the movie starts to drag in the middle of the movie in a point where I started to loose interest.  Luckily, towards the end, suspense and actions picks up.

The movie is consider low-budget but the special effects are surprisingly good.  There are lots of gore and blood in the movie and it looks very real.  The big foot monster didn’t look like a cheap monkey suite, but it was actually pretty convincing.

Unfortunately, the acting suffer a bit.  Husband and wife lead don’t really have any chemistry between them.  The acting from all the actors are below average to just average.  Specially, Andrew Joseph Montgomery who plays Max the husband, seems very stiff and unconvincing.  Upside is that the female lead played by Casey Gagliardi is very attractive actress and fair good job.

There is surprise ending, but it was predictable.  The movie ends in a cliff hanger as if there is going to be sequel.  I am not sure if there is going to be sequel or not, but I am not sure if I am interested in seeing what happens next.

In the Nutshell

If you are a big foot fan, you might want to check it out.  Primal Rage doesn’t really stand out from other big foot movies, but it isn’t terrible. [3 out of 5 stars]
