Back to the Limbo, but with Six Points for Absurdity
11 June 2006 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

Funny thing, I see why this flick hasn't scored too well so far, but it still tickles my funny bone. Sort of schizophrenic, I guess. The acting looks like a school play, the special effects are lousy-ish, but there's a certain absurdity that makes it watchable. Maybe a contact between stylish devilish entities and Hollywood folks could really be like this.

One important thing in watching a movie is to become curious about how it will go on and be finished, and here a positive tension arises, because the storyline blatantly equates the devilish visitors with movie making people. Hollywood is Hellwood.

The dolls are nice and the baddies stylish. Watching Mystery Monsters brought up the inner four-year old me. I childishly give this one six points.
