Makes "Plan 9 From Outer Space" look like "The Seventh Seal"
19 May 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

There's plenty of bad movies out there. However, this is one of those specially bad movies where absolutely nothing works but is wonderfully entertaining because of this. One must wonder if the filmmakers made this one with serious intentions. I mean the concept itself is so derived of any potential thrills (an university professor discovers an ancient stone that turns him into a sex machine). The film attempts to combine this anti-horror story with plenty of softcore sex. Amazingly, the ladies in this film are quite attractive but the project is so inept there's absolutely no erotic value. The film fails as both horror and erotica.

However, as psychotronic cinema, its very enjoyable. The film is just as insane as the concept, something many exploitation filmmakers couldn't accomplish. In particular, the last half hour is so over-the-top and lacking of explanation it becomes fascinatingly surreal. This is one boneheaded flick, completely derived of logic. The beginning is full of pseudo-scientific babble about alchemy thats probably complete crap. Its pretty homophobic but its so wrongheaded it remains inoffensive. Filled with plenty of memorably awful moments, this flick is devoid of any redeeming social value but offers gold for serious cult film fans. Kudos to Something Weird for having the good taste to unleash this on the public (that'd be sweet if they released it to DVD). (5/10)
