Storyline

A civilization on a distant planet has found a way to solve its garbage problem: turning it into energy and beaming it into outer space. A flaw in this system is found when the signal is accidentally picked up on Earth by the Putterman Family's home satellite dish. While this would ordinarily be just another mess, this particular transmission contains a hungry trash monster who quickly begins snacking on the Puttermans and their guests. Only young Sherman Putterman has any clue what is going on, but nobody will believe him. Is there any hope for the Earth? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Totally trash
13 December 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Well, I have watched this movie when I was a teen, about 15 years ago, and recently found it in a VHS sale. Of course I picked it at once, because I could not help myself smiling at the sight of it. The movie is a trash jewel, any fan of horror flicks should watch it at least once in their lives. The performances are poor and over the top, the effects are cheesy, the script is a complete turmoil... But I dare say that you have to like it! The one that has never seen a pure garbage movie throw the first stone. The productions from Empire, owned by Charles Band, are famous for the lack of common sense and this is not an exception. Like I stated before, do not expect anything but an hour and a half of involuntary laughs, it is a totally trash movie through and through.
