Mediocre monster fun.
21 January 2011 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Read the comments for Karl Kozak's straight to DVD creature feature Clawed and you'll find that the general consensus is that the film is a serviceable piece of Sasquatch silliness with adequate performances, some so-so gore, an acceptable monster, and a reasonably creepy atmosphere.

Sadly, it is this mediocrity that will almost certainly doom the film to obscurity. Were the movie a genuine steaming pile of yeti-dung, as the current rating of 3/10 strangely suggests, it would undoubtedly secure itself a cult following, as has happened with low budget big-foot trash-fest Night of the Demon (1980). As it stands, Clawed simply isn't memorable enough.

The gazillionth movie to nick its basic premise from Jaws (a deadly creature threatens to ruin a small community's Spring Break tourist trade), Clawed plays everything just a little too safe, with all the expected clichés present and correct, but nowhere near enough originality on display.

The one moment that stood out for me (apart from when one teen hottie wanders into the woods in just her bra and very short shorts) is the discovery of a mutilated grizzly bear impaled on a tree branch; if there had been more of this kind of grisly inventiveness, the whole thing would have made a lot more impact.
