BOTTOM FEEDER (bottom predator) (2006 CANADA) D/W: RANDY DAUDLIN P: ROBERT WILSON/PATRICK CAMERON/HARVEY GLAZER
A crippled, badly-burnt millionaire (Richard Fitzpatrick uner a lot of latex) has a leukemia research scientist fatally wounded and left for dead to test his experimental cell regeneration serum (with which he has has been injected). A quartet of gardeners (led by Tom Sizemore) making a security sweep through a network of disused underground tunnels connecting a campus find that he has transformed into a hungry flesh-eating rat-faced beast. Director Daudlin usually works as a make-up and FX artist, so the refreshingly non-CGI gore (including a couple of decapitated heads) is not bad at all. But everything else sucks, and this was a chore to sit through. Characters include an Asian knife-fighting bodyguard and a homeless rasta.
