In my entire life, I have never seen a more stunning example of how parody can fall flat on it's face. Listen, I get it, low-budget horror movies are laughable with their bad acting, corny dialog and low- budget special effects. Soooo......the obvious way to satirize them is with worse acting, cornier dialog, and special effects that would make Ed Wood cringe, right?. WRONG. And this movie proves it with a vengeance. Parodying low budget horror movies is an OK idea, just as long as you don't end up with a film that is substantially worse than most low budget horror movies. Furthermore, for a film to succeed as a parody, it usually requires humor and that is something that is PAINFULLY missing in this film. The amateurish acting and cringe worthy dialog would have been fine with me if I had, at least gotten a few decent laughs out of it. But the (intentional) laughs are few and far between. As far as the low-budget sets and bad special effects are concerned, I understand that they were deliberately bad. However, they went WAY overboard to make them look cheap and cheezy.
