A masterpiece
20 August 2001 | by (Planet X) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Plan 9 could learn a few things about schlock from my man Wings. Extremely entertaining if you have a well-developed sense of the absurd. If you don't, you will likely hate it, but isn't there enough hate in the world today?

hugs, grimmoh
