This is bad.

Horror? No.

Funny? No.

Drama? No.

Garbage? Well, I'll take it out, dear.

So bad its good? No. Its worse.

Ever had guests that never leave? You invited to a party, 26 hours ago, and some snort-heads are still on their way up, you wanna sleep, but you know that you'll wake up with a bottle of Absolute or something stuck up your ass if you fall asleep.... and you just cant take anymore.

WELL! This stinker is your solution: -Hey guys, I've got a really fat movie here, just let me turn down that music, and... find my VCR.

They don't just leave, they'll run. And they'll never come back.

Its impossible to watch this... thing. Its so bad its fascinating, I think the best liner is: We'll make camp here. But don't make any fire. And thats not a killer line...

Don't watch it, but if you can, buy it. It can be useful, as a part of an anti-thief system, even the police will give up and run...

1 is the bottom line, OK. If I could give it a -10.... No. Just leave it there. Its a ... cant find the words. I guess Satan took them with him when he fell down there. And some nut-heads still thinks plan 9 is the worst movie ever? This is worse than Jacksons King Kong! And Woooah, thats ugly...
