Ripe and juicy stinker worth seeking out.
21 March 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Regional schlock about a fellow named Bestoink(!),a humble reporter trying to solve an ages-old cowtown mystery. It seems that a certain mountain has been known to "bleed" human blood, marking the start of a killing spree by an ancient beast which lives within the mountain's hollow.

Said monster does, indeed, turn up...and it's one sad looking critter, let me tell you...sort of a mangled conehead with furry riding britches and tails hanging from both hips, covered with what appears to be cottonballs. The creature growls like a lion, kills a couple of the resident good ol' boys, and chases Bestoink around for several minutes of unsuccessful intended comedy.

This is a really weak flick, pure amateur-night dross with rampant sub-adequacies evident in every possible facet of its composition. In short, its gold-star entertainment for the enthusiast of artless American filmtrash. Leading lady Erin Fleming was once a pigeon for tabloid fodder concerning her strange and often turbulent relationship with Groucho Marx during his later years. Country singer Kenny Rogers' ex-wife, Marianne Gordon(who had a bit part in ROSEMARY'S BABY), is also featured.
