When Canadians Act, pain is "Coming Soon"
19 June 2001 | by (Omaha, NE) – See all my reviews

Okay... This movie almost defies explanation because of its horribly slow pace. I have most of the movie on tape when it was on "Commander USA's Groovie Movies" on USA Network in the 80's. If the commander wasn't spicing it up the film would've been almost unwatchable. I mean it's bad in a good way. It's a great midnight movie. A weird guy, who's presumably from space, drives an ugly American car with a trailer into a Canadian town chock full o' tepid deceit. The trailer has a sign on it that has a lovely crude sign on it that says "Coming Soon." Once in the town he rents a hall so Howard Turt (nee Turd) can put on a show. The inbred locals attempt to rough up the car, the weirdo, and the casket in the trailer. The show goes on and Howard (a glowing light from within the casket) turns some of the locals a lovely shade of blue, forcing them to tell the truth. It's at this point I taped over the end of the movie with the film adaptation of War of the Worlds. At this point I would just like to say that I am not on drugs and this movie does exist as I have described it. It just seems to awful to be true. Beware! This movie is out there somewhere!
