Trivia

"Lord Buckethead" attempted to promote his movie in the UK by standing as a prospective MP for Parliament in both the 1987 and 1992 General Elections. Representing the "Gremloid" party (by which this movie is known in the UK) he stood against Margaret Thatcher in her Finchley constituency and somehow got 131 votes. Five years later in 1992 he stood against the then PM John Major in Huntingdon and got 107 votes. See more »

Intermittent comic genius!
17 November 2000 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

My friends and I saw this film on video here in England where it is titled 'Gremloids'. I have to say that much of the plot and the jokes are just appalling beyond belief, painfully, cringe-inducingly so. However, whenever 'Lord Buckethead' is on screen the film becomes so painfully, achingly, funny that I can forgive anything. His scenes are not only brilliantly written but performed with such a flare that one might not be exaggerating too much to call it comic genius in the Monty Python / Peter Sellers tradition. Added to that is one of the most hilariously appalling special effects sequences ever - a flying shopping trolley chase in a supermarket that would have been more convincing if the makers had used plasticine - and you have a sporadically brilliant movie that I'm going to give 10 out of 10 just for the hell of it!
