Storyline

Horror movie about a Charles Manson-like cult leader and his deranged, sex-mad, murderous followers who were captured and sent to prison, only to make probation 16 years later and launch a bloody revenge. Igor and his flock set out to smite the townspeople who sent them up, the former members who betrayed them to the law, and just about anyone else who gets in their way. Written by Ørnås

the cast changes about half-way through the film
29 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is stupid, insulting, and without continuity. IGOR became infamous as a film that, midway through, uses a whole different set of actors to portray the characters, without an explaination as to why! Most of the actors don't even look the same.

With a film as bad as IGOR, though, probably nobody would notice the difference. This is among the worst that Troma has ever released, although as the other comments here have said, there are also some laughs.

But, is it worth it?
