Viewing Notes

Wow, this was pretty rough. Would’ve made a great movie night movie with Jay and Pat! There are some great bits here and there, including one scene where they obviously spent most of their budget on practical creature FX. Which is too bad because it left no budget for any lighting. Seriously, the lighting was so bad you couldn’t see what the hell was going on most of the time. Flashlights and lighters as actual sources of light for 2/3 of the movie doesn’t work out so well.

Barbara Crampton pretty much steals the show as the only well-acted character, with Dee Wallace’s performance a decent second.

Oh you watched it! Yeah, like I mentioned, heard it was pretty awful so I haven’t been in a rush to see it. Someday I suppose. Too bad they squandered all that talent. Does sound like it would be more enjoyable for a movie night.

Worth watching for Barbara and Dee but that’s about it!
