  • Whatever aspect of the film industry you’re in, you’re in because you love it. It could be the creation of creatures, the set design, or the costumes that lured you in or maybe it’s crafting the stories performed, being the performer, or directing the performances. Whatever it is, you’re there because it calls to you. First-time feature director Jim Ojala ("Deadgirl" and "TRON: Legacy") clearly understands this pull after nearly twenty years as an F/X technician, make-up artist, writer, actor, and director, who, with the help of a Kickstarter campaign, brought his vision of horror to life in the form of eco-thriller "Strange Nature", a horrific tale inspired by real events. One of the dangers of having so much experience and so much to say, however, is creating a final product uneven in its focus and intent. So while there’s some great strength in several areas of "Strange Nature", it just can’t pull itself together into a whole tale.
