This THING was truly awful! How do they continue to get budgets for these monstrosities? I really should have known better since it was a Sci-Fi (un)original movie.
Where to begin with the complaints? History, I suppose. It's fine to promote something as "based on true events", but at least stay within the details of those events. To begin with, the fort was in no way that large. I've been to the site and seen the general area it existed in. Then to have it burnt down at the end, blatantly flying in the face of one of the most important details of the Lost Colony mystery, where no signs of a struggle existed, was shear heresy.
The 21st century people trying to act as though they were from the 16th century was atrocious. Beautiful, clean, skinny people with varying accents. Perfect hair and teeth. Was nobody scruffy looking then? The casting director should be shot. Hell, the director and script writer should be shot.
Out of the many supernatural depictions of the Lost Colony mystery, I'll have to recommend 2000's FreakyLinks pilot episode Fearsum. Those few minutes felt more authentic than this whole movie and I know that they were contrived for story purposes.
I've got to say that the best part of this whole awful program's showing was the commercial spots for Dan Myrick's new movie Believers.
Freakosity is a very vast subject.
