A marvelously inspired fanboy sci-comedy written by and starring two fanboys. You don’t have to be a sci-fi fan to enjoy this movie, but it helps. It helps a lot. From the in-jokes to the subtle references to the key casting choices and the deliberate homages, this movie is jam-packed with everything a fan could …
I have not seen this movie since I was much younger, but the thought of it bothers me more now since I have a young son myself. There was some truly eerie scenes in this film and some cringe-inducing events with a scalpel. A rewatch and possible re-rating may be needed.
“It’s funny when the magician gets electrocuted by the bunny.”
“The bird with porcupine needles in his head in funny.”
“Kind of scares me, never want to see it again.”
My ultimate guilty pleasure movie. I make no apologies for the ridiculous amount of times I’ve seen this flick. I like the singing; I like the edgy humour; I like the girls. It’s a fun movie, so bite me.
Directorial debut for the late special effects master, Stan Winston. Creepy tone throughout, solid gore and unsurprisingly, great creature effects and design. Lance Henrikson is Lance Henrikson as always and that’s just how we like it.
The only thing Paul Reubens should have ever released in a theatre.
“Singing. Fun. Um, let me think, this is hard… girls.”
