Provocative title, dull movie
20 April 2001 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

Ever seen an exciting film about people-eating trees? Well this is not it. The carnivorous tree doesn't really perform the title action very often and looks like a ratty leftover from some high-school production of THE WIZARD OF OZ. Lots of talk takes up the 71-minute running time and makes a good idea into a real drag of a film.
