Legendary Nasty!
9 September 1999 | by (Port Seton, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Where I come from (the uk), this film is still banned in it's uncut version. However, for those of us that have seen the full 100 mins, it's a great horror movie! Clint Howard has been given hardly any other decent roles since this but it's hard to see why because his performance is really good. The story is the usual 'worm that turned' scenario but what makes this stand out from the rest is the kick-ass gore scenes and sympathetic lead character. Even though Howard chops his way through most the supporting cast, you find yourself cheering him on! Go on....give yourself a nasty treat & rent it NOW!
