Vultures, crows, monkeys, and magpies ...............
5 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This dark comedy features a spirited performance by Stella Stevens as "Granny". The actors have great makeup, and there is rarely a dull moment. Granny on her deathbed is chosen to get a second chance at life and immortality. Unfortunately the carefully explained three step process gets derailed by a cat, and Granny comes back from the dead seeking revenge on her jackal-like family. There are a few similarities between "The Granny" and "Ed and His Dead Mother", which precedes this film by two years. A couple low budget effects slightly detract, like in the fur closet when hand puppet minks attack, but overall the movie succeeds as entertainment. Shannon Whirry and Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst showing some skin doesn't hurt either. - MERK
