good lord, this movie is NOT THAT BAD! it's GREAT!
11 May 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

PEOPLE! Get off your high horse and realize this movie rocks harder than any other "horror" movie from the 90's. (face it, 90's horror movies BLOW) It's better than Dead Hate the Living, better than all the Puppet Masters, better than any of those!! Hideous is an AWESOME movie and I could watch it over and over.

I am a sucker for horror comedies, however. Some people don't like these types of movies, which is understandable. But I eat them up like nachos. I love them. Hideous is the ultimate horror comedy. It's up there with Blood Diner, Blood Hook, Motel Hell, Sleepaway Camp and probably a bunch of Troma movies.

The acting is great. I love Napoleon. He has such a great look, a great face. The two collector men are hysterical! The way they talk to each other and the vocabulary they use cracks me up. They are so serious all the time and make such great facial expressions. I love the one guy's eyebrows!

Yeah, yeah, the gorilla face topless scene is funny, but it's NOT the only good part of the film! Far from! I found this movie highly entertaining, witty, rarely dull and full of surprises and great characters. I WISH it had done better on the rental market because I would totally buy all the action figures!!

LOVE IT! 9/10!
