Anybody can make a movie....
23 May 2001 | by (IN, USA) – See all my reviews

Wow. I knew exactly what I was getting into. I love bad horror/sci-fi movies (well, definitely not ALL of them..) but this sucked. A few amusing bits of bad acting stand out amidst a backdrop of low, LOW budget "action." I guess there's a couple decent bits of nudity, and having the monster be named "Steve" is kinda funny. The lack of special effects at the film's start was nearly unbearable. The sad thing is I've seen stuff that's a hundred times worse. MST could've worked wonders.....
