God bless the coked-out 80s
4 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Say what you will about cocaine, but it got a lot movies greenlit in the '80s. Apparently, a lot of them didn't get finished and here are three that would have otherwise been lost forever, dragged into a hole in the ground by a stop-motion spider demon. This movie is a lot of fun and even shows touches of brilliance. Overall, it's a fine curiosity and perfect viewing with friends who love cinematic oddities. It maybe crap, but it's more entertaining than most big-budget Hollywood movies I've seen recently. You have to see this movie to believe it. As stated before, a highlight is the stop-motion animation that pops up from time to time. There is a deadly "Beetle" that looks more like a big wasp that stalks members of the "Death Wish Club," and a big demon statue that comes to life and kills a mop-headed kid in the third story. Then, a big spider monster comes out of the ground to drag a monk down to Hell. Fun, fun, fun!
