This Is Our Generation's PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE!!!
24 November 2003 | by (Bloomington, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie makes Plan 9 look like a thrilling Oscar-worthy science-fiction film.

I caught this movie on Showtime awhile back and from my first glance at the beginning scene I instantly fell in love. This movie has EVERYTHING. A monster named Steve, carnivorous rubber armadillos and of course JOE ESTEVEZ, Martin Sheen's lesser known brother who starred in another frightful (in a bad way) film that was mocked on MST3K by the name of Soultaker (1990)...yes, it IS as bad as it sounds. Anyway, back to Dark Universe, I love this film for its ability to entertain. If they sold this as a spoof, it would've been hailed as one of the greatest ever, but what makes the movie even funnier---maybe even a bit more disturbing---is that they tried to make this an honest sci-fi movie.

Anyway, here is Dave's Completely Useless Rating:
