A Climax To Die For
25 April 2002 | by (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) – See all my reviews

The heroine in the clutches of a vampire tree, the hero leaping to her aid with an axe - slashing at blood-sucking branches with his weapon - then being attacked by the mad scientist who created the tree, also with an axe!

An axe battle between the two, under the writhing blood-sucking branches, in the middle of a rain-drenched thunderstorm. GREAT staging! What happens next is bloody (incredibly bloody, in fact), outrageous, melodramatic, over-the-top, and (dare I say?) EXCITING!

Now come on - isn't that last ten minutes worth the previous hour and 20 minutes of bad dubbing and odd characterisation?

And what the HELL is that old German woman gibbering on about?

Fans of Man-Eating Plants should check out the Mel Welles site.
