Monster Sucks
26 March 2010 | by (Doomed Theater of Despair) – See all my reviews

I didn't think it was possible for Bill Rebane to repeat the same fatal flaws that were so prevalent in "Monster-a-go-go" making it one of the worst movies I have ever watched. That was until I saw lightning strike twice in the form of "Twister's Revenge" an attempted comedy that is anything but. If there is a bottom of the barrel that extends through the substructure of the planet into the very depths of the universe finally spiraling infinitely into a black hole this is approximately where this film belongs. Painful doesn't even scratch the surface as most of the "comedy" comes in the form of three clueless dopes that for some uncertain reason want to steal a computer possibly to pawn it for cases of Pabst Blue Ribbon and Cheez Whiz to huff. When that proves unsuccessful they resort to kidnapping the soon-to-be wife of Wisconsin's lone cowboy (I'm surprised his hat wasn't made out of foam cheese) who in turn must team up with Twister, a talking monster truck. Thus begins a Tango and Cash like team with both inanimate objects blistering each other with mundane quips. Sort of like if someone called you stupid and you replied with "I know you are but what am I?". This movie is like telling the same knock-knock joke for ninety minutes. What's even more grating is how it quickly degenerates into amusing the lowest common denominator on Earth. If there was ever a film made for cavemen this is it. The cowboy and the leader of the three idiots trade rifle shots throughout the film as if attempted murder is somehow funny which is only topped by Twister's strategy of simply running friends and family members of the trio down. Vehicular manslaughter. Ha ha. The most horrific scene is easily the jaw-droppingly hideous "love birds" song performed by a beast of a woman in spandex with too much makeup. There is nothing redeeming whatsoever to watch here as not one iota of "Twister's Revenge" made me even crack a smile. If there ever was proof that man is devolving as a species this is certainly it. How many times can you watch a car get "runned over real good" before it becomes pablum even for the slowest of dolts? It's clear to me that at this point in his career Bill Rebane just plain gave up trying. Recommended only for those that are in the first stages of learning how to use your opposable thumbs.
