Amusing Bad Movie
6 April 2000 | by (The Land of Mortis) – See all my reviews

Another crapfest from the great Nathan Juran (also known as Nathan Hertz, as in "So bad its Hertz") the director of Attack of the 50 foot Woman and the Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. Drawn out story of a kid whose father has become a werewolf and who can't get anyone to believe him. Hilarious hippy cult leader sequence. Basically a crappy, but amusing film. If you like bad movies, wallow in this one's crapulence and you'll be glad you did.
