Perhaps the greatest B movie ever created
6 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

It is the holy grail of B movies! The acting is sad, but that only adds to the laughs! Effects? Well in the opening scene where a girl loses an arm, you can clearly see her arm "hidden" under some hay. Which only adds to the laughs! And such classic lines as "But, mom! That would be incest!", "I voted for Reagan", and "I hate rap music!!" You would just have to see the movie to really appreciate these lines! If you see it to rent/buy/steal whatever... PICK IT UP!
