Quotes

Dad - Col. William P. Walker: Romania, it's quite a country. It's deep behind the Iron Curtain. It's steeped in the superstition of the Dark Ages. A country wrapped by ignorance and fear. You'll enjoy it.

Sloppy but good-natured.
17 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

This horror spoof contains enough corny jokes to last you a lifetime, but is generally harmless and even has a certain schlocky charm. Produced on an obviously low budget and sloppily directed by Larry Cohen, it tries to do for werewolf flicks what "Airplane!" had done for disaster epics the previous year, but it's just too "unpolished" to succeed.
