Save it
Based on the intrinsically arresting idea that mercury poisoning has populated a huge area of American wilderness with numerous rampaging mutations, but somehow no one has noticed. Unfortunately, the film never integrates its eco-horror plot with the cardboard shocks, and the whole venture stops dead with the script's inane assumption that the heroine will put motherhood above all to nurse an ailing monster. It's a small relief when it finally turns round and bites her.
