Good old-fashioned monster film from Ireland (with nods to Alien and The Thing) about man's continued meddeling with mother nature--this time cows and wind… More

A decent Irish chiller clearly inspired by "Its Alive" and "Alien". I enjoyed the earlier stages more. Isolation here lives up to its name… More
