STILL The worst movie I've seen
11 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually saw this in the theater when it came out. After all these years, I can still say it is the worst movie I have ever seen. And I LIKE campy, cheesy B-Movies! Look out Kraft; you are not the cheesiest. If you think the special effects are bad because the movie is old, think again. Sitting in the movie theater in 1978 my friend and I both thought the effects were the worst we'd ever seen. And the acting. And the plot(?). The filmography sucks. It's not even interesting like a train wreck. It's about as interesting as watching sidewalks crack. Without ants. At night. No moon.

I could go on, but I've already put more creativity into this review than the movie had. And I'm not creative.

I'd give it negative stars if possible. Ten black holes. I had to give it a one though, and that hurt.

Bad movie. Anguishly bad. I still want my money back.
