If trees could talk...
21 December 2002 | by (Wyoming) – See all my reviews

If trees could talk, there'd be some breaking of limbs.

Brief synopsis: Nuclear fallout brings a dead islander to life as a malevolent, walking tree with the usual attacks on the young girl, etc.

This has to be one of the most ridiculous horror films it's ever been my displeasure to see. This is the one you took your girl to at the drive-in as a teenager because you knew neither of you could possibly stand to watch it.

Not much more to say except: bad acting, poor story. What the HELL! It was a good laugh.

It's my misfortune to own this on 16mm film. I don't know if it was released on video.
