Not Bad Film
26 May 2004 | by (antarctica) – See all my reviews

Well, I bought this little film on second-hand VHS at some second-hand store some time back, and I must say that I quite enjoyed it -- it even features a character quoting a line from GhostBusters; "I'm terrified beyond rational thought" or something (I forget the exact phrase). I thought the comedy moments were mostly done well, the music was enjoyable also, and the creature effects towards the end were impressive considering that this film must have had a pretty low budget. A cut above the average zero-budget flick, worth picking up if you happen to find yourself in a second-hand store and come across it for a reasonable price. All in all, absolutely watchable and enjoyable.
