Bloody Bad Show
28 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

Apparently a group of priests/monks many years ago in Mexico were forced to jump from the tower of their monastery by a crazed Mexican landowner looking for gold that had been allocated to the poor of the town. This story supposedly ties into this mess of a movie in a modern-day setting...but don't you believe it. This movie made me scream bloody screams. I was almost unable to stay up throughout the whole boring affair which really tells no story at all except some Mexican guy coming back to his past...Yes, you are right...his past in that town where the falling monks once lived. Naturally, he falls in love with an American girl just going from town to town with no discernible income. The plot is so course that there is literally no cohesion at all from one scene to another. The movie has the look of something some guys with a camcorder might have put together. I don't know what is worse: the sluggish pacing of the film, the total lack of acting talent, has-been Russ Tamblyn shamelessly trying to be funny as he mugs the camera for all its worth, the cheap sets, the irritating fact that someone produced this mess, and the list could go on and on. To give you an idea just how bad this film is...the best part is Tamblyn...NOW that's scary!
