The Relic (1997)

Peter HyamsThe Relic (1997) was recently on Netflix so I decided to watch it again. I love how the beginning of the movie reels you in with the promise of a deep horror movie. We start off with a scientist sending leaves with orange spots back to the Chicago Museum of Natural History. After some time the fellow scientists discover that the fungi on the leaves are the new discovery. 

The tribe are briefly featured in a flashback and it was great. After that we get a classic horror movie cookie cutter movie where a damsel (scientist Dr. Margo Green played by Penelope Anne Miller) fights off the lizard creature that eats the fungi off the leaves. This is science meets horror but I felt the movie just did not flow the way it should have.

There are moments of okay action but just not enough to redeem the movie. I will not watch this again.

Synopsis:

A homicide detective and an anthropologist try to destroy a South American lizard-like god, who's on a people eating rampage in a Chicago museum.
