Weird and a little bit dull.
6 June 2008 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Christopher Brooks gives an energetic performance as the rising magician Alabama who is treated like a celebrity.He learned all his magic tricks from the dead Carter the Great whose ghost still haunts him.A big promoter turns out to be a megalomaniac vampire planning to enslave a viewing audience with zeta rays.There's also a Nazi femme scientist named Dr. Caligula who builds a robot version of Alabama!I'm not sure how to treat this surreal mix of horror,comedy,musical and sci-fi.One thing for sure:there were copious amounts of LSD involved.Director/producer/writer Fredric Hobbs of "Godmonster of Indian Flats" fame has crafted an utterly bizarre,multi-layered film which can only be described as one-of-a-kind.Still the action is dull in spots and the suspense is replaced by weirdness.Fans of surreal cinema should give this film a chance.
