Pretty entertaining
17 April 2008 | by (ILLINOIS USA) – See all my reviews

As I've grown older, I've noticed that I have less patience for crappy direct to video movies. With the proliferation of inexpensive video cameras and editing software, plenty of people have turned to the direct to video market to make a few quick bucks. Now even larger companies like Dimension Films are releasing low budget "So bad it's good" trash on their Dimension EXTREME video line. The problem is most of these films are just "so bad" without being "good" in any way, shape, or form (I'm talking to you Automaton Transfusion). Many companies of this ilk will have a minor hit, take for instance The Bare Wench Project. From what I understand, the movie made loads of money on video and cable. So, what did the film makers do? They flooded the market with more sexy spoofs till there was no market left to be had. This happens all the time. I guarantee that within a year and a half Dimension Extreme will disappear, they'll have made their money from the gullible looking to see something new and move on. This happened with Brain Damage Films, Full Moon, The Asylum, Troma, and the producers of Polymorph, Suburban Tempe films.

The reason I bring this up is because Polymorph is actually an entertaining flick, and one of Tempe's better movies. Most people rave about the Dead Next Door, or Ozone, but this movie is the best of the whole lot. Sure it's bad, but it's bad in the same way The Evil Dead is bad, or Bad Taste is bad. It brings new ideas to the table and keeps the action moving forward. I recommend this movie to anyone who misses the good old days of watching bad cinema, and instead of being disappointed, having a good time. So, get a six pack order a pizza, invite some friends over and enjoy.
