Very creepy and underrated Candian slasher.
7 May 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A prologue of "Humongous" is set in 1946.It shows a rich guy throwing a party on the island,in which his daughter was raped by her drunken boyfriend,who is then eaten by dogs.Nearly thirty years later some unlucky teens are trapped on an island with a 7-foot humongous creature with a taste for human blood.Unjustly trashed by almost everybody "Humongous" is actually one of the best Canadian horror films I have ever seen.I enjoyed it much better than slightly overrated "Prom Night".Sure,the film is dimly-lit and we don't really see the creature at all,but there is enough suspense to keep slasher fans entertained."Humongous" is not as gory as "Antropophagus" or "The Slayer",but if you enjoy watching murky slasher flicks from early 80's give it a chance.9 out of 10.
