Truly a work of art.
22 July 2004 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Seriously, hilarious, I was laughing out loud, even at 7:30am. Some people are hard on this movie for it's crappy plot, crappy acting, etc. but believe me, without those things, it would have been unbearable.

For B (or C?) movies like this, it's better if everything is done poorly to enhance the real genuine entertainment value of the film. We need more movies like this. The puppets for the "alien" pets look like they took about 30 minutes to make if that.

I'd pay good money to see it. I'm curious to see what other things the director has done. Only rarely does a work of art come about that is this superb.
