There are clues all over the walls which he comes to understand are meant to help him remember something, and as his memories slowly begin to return, we're shown flashbacks of his past few days, and how he and his friends came to be in the mess that they're in.
Sticky, black, viral mayhem ensues.
|SHE WAS LEGIT CREEPY.|
We also really liked Katheryn Prescott as Katie. We've been fans of hers since she was on the British TV Show, Skins, and it's good to see her in something new again, as she's a great little actress who brings something special to whatever she stars in. Gabrielle Walsh was also pretty good as Jess, and was sufficiently creepy once she was in full "hive" mode.
Overall though, The Hive is a movie that is big on ideas, but very small on coherent quality.
|SHE'S STILL DREAMING OF NAOMI...|
Instead of being an effective Horror movie that has a love story at its heart, it ends up being a jumbled, unfocused, obnoxious mess that jumps back and forth so much, that at one point we didn't even care what was happening anymore... which sucked for us, because most of the movie involves the characters of Adam standing around and explaining to us what is going on. Out loud. We also get to see plenty of Adam's memories (both his own, and the ones belonging to other people that he can access through the hive mind), all of which serve to further explain to us what is going on.
|THE FX IN THIS MOVIE WERE PRETTY FANTASTIC THOUGH.|
|THIS WAS PRETTY MUCH US WATCHING THE HIVE.|
The Hive is available now on VOD.
Kathryn Prescott stole the show in this one.
