Trivia

In the basement of the antique shop where the Garbage Pail Kids hideout, there's a large painting by the stairs. In the painting is the makeup creator, John Carl Buechler, and to his right is a small green creature. That creature is the eponymous character from Ghoulies, for which Buechler designed the characters a few years prior to The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. See more »

Quotes

Dodger: [starting work unloading a crate] Do you sell much of this stuff? We've only had two customers and they didn't buy anything.
Captain Manzini: Patience is a bitter vine, dear Dodger, but it bears sweet fruit.
Dodger: Huh?
Captain Manzini: That's from the Greek. It loses a little something in translation. Now, let's add a little sparkle to our merchandise.
[hands Dodger a feather duster]
Captain Manzini: Funny people should call this junk, isn't it? When every piece is a diary of the human spirit.
[holds book, looks at inside cover]
Captain Manzini: Take this, for instance....

I could not even comprehend that this was a movie.
12 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt like I had been locked in a basement for seven years, tortured, raped, and mentally abused by the time this thing was done.

This deserves a zero! it honestly does! It deserves a zero.

This film is evil incarnate. EVIL.

I still wake up every night. Screaming. Screaming.

I am honestly very disturbed by this turd of a "movie".

Manos: the Hands of Fate is better than this movie! THIS IS THE WORST MOVIE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL HUMANITY!! I WANT TO BOMB OURSELVES THAT'S HOW BAD THIS IS.
