When I first saw this I thought it was a joke. All I could think was "You
get the 8MM camera, I'll get my little brother's monster toys, we'll make
movie!" Why would anyone in a modern time like 2001 make a sci-fi movie
like this, it looks like it was made in the early 80's. With actors that
are as wooden as a cigar store indian, a script that was written by the
director's 4-year-old son, a camera that was stolen from a burning pawn
shop, poverty-row special effects, and to top it off, a director that
thought making this crap would make them famous. The end result wasn't
spectacular, complete with scrappy dialogue and continuity. From Venus
have been fun to make and I'm sure everyone involved had a blast with
silly little movie.
A 2 out of 10 for a valiant, hopeless effort.
This has got to be one of the weakest plots in a movie I have ever seen.
However, that is not all that this movie is lacking. This movie has the worst acting, writing, directing, special effects, you name it--it's the worst ever.
I highly advise you to spend your time on worthwhile movies and not waste your time on this garbage.
I do agree with an earlier post that the "women" were definitely men dressed up in drag, and that did give me a laugh, I keep trying to figure out if they were being obvious about it or if they were actually trying to be sexy women.
Anyway, there is not much else in this movie that is worth watching!
To sum it up: horrible acting, horrible script, horrible idea for a movie. An hour and a half of my life I want back RIGHT NOW!!
This movie was just so utterly horrible that I couldn't get through the
entire thing without turning it off, it was just that bad! When I was
watching it I kept thinking it looked like some really cheap film made
back in the 60's or something with those terrible looking special
effects, but then I realized that this was just made in 2001.
The dialog and the acting were really very horrible and the plot was almost non-existent. I didn't think anyone would go back to making films that look so cheap and old, I'm not sure if they did that on purpose or if they really didn't have any budget for this movie at all. It really looks like it was shot on someone's camcorder at a local person's house or something. Maybe they thought they were being retro or something but it just comes off looking really cheesy.
I really don't know how anyone could ever actually enjoy watching this.
0 out of 5 *'s.
Words cannot express how poor this film is.
There is no plot, the acting is appalling, basically the whole film is a joke.
With a running time of 97 minutes, it's about 96 minutes too long.
It might have been OK as a short sketch on a comedy show, but the premise is way too flimsy to work for that amount of time without boredom kicking in.
Avoid this one, go rent a good movie instead!
Words cannot begin to express how sad and unimaginative this non-movie
is!! This has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever seen in my entire
life! The acting (if you can call it that!) is the the worst in any
movie ever made, ever!
The fake scenes with the women who, I guess, are supposed to be sexy (they are sooooo ugly, it's unbelievable that anyone would ever cast them in a role meant to be sexy! it's just soooo sad!) The one sorta blond chick is definitely a man in disguise! Actually all of them REALLY look like men is disguise. I guess that is what they were going for, though. I can only imagine that this whole thing is meant to be a complete joke. No one would make this crap and be serious about it, and the men dressed up as women are hilarious!
You should go rent this if you want a huge laugh, the more I think about it, it definitely must be a huge joke, one of those fake "movies" that promise "sexiness" and "thrills" but deliver only humility. Nice $2 costumes, hilarious!!!!!!!
If you want to see how to ruin a film, study this one very closely. In
fact, it is so bad that people should buy it for that reason alone.
Especially note how most of the scenes look as if they were knocked up
in about 5 minutes. Realism escapes this movie on every level. The
overall impression is that someone was given a below average script,
wannabe actors, an average director and absolutely no budget
whatsoever. With a formula like that, it just had to be doomed.
I rented this once, and I swear I got stupider watching it. If you are a humanitarian, buy this horrible, horrible movie, and burn it-UNWATCHED- as a favor to the world. It has no discernible plot, bad acting, and then tosses in something about evil ugly women just to really cap the whole thing off. I would suggest watching paint dry before this stupid waste of a tape! Seriously. The paint would be better. I wish I could give this negative 10 stars.
To have to actually own up to making such a horrible movie! Actually,
I'm more embarrassed that I sat through the whole thing. It looks like
an old 80's sci-fi movie complete with super-fake looking "special
effects", queer imagery, and very cheesy dialogue. Maybe that's the way
they wanted it to look, maybe they think it's cool to do movies in 80's
fashion like it will come back in style. Who knows...
If you think the promised eye-candy will save the film, you're in for a disappointment--the so-called "babes" are manish and downright ugly. They can't act at all, I don't understand why they couldn't at least get good looking chicks if they want babes with no talent! But I guess when you're making a film this stupid, you don't get very good choices, hot chicks aren't just lining up to do this kind of pitiful crap!
It's tempting to view this film as a daring avant-garde experiment. I
to think that the director was trying to see if it was possible to take
the conventions of comedy film and produce something that was completely,
utterly, entirely unfunny.
The answer, to judge by "From Venus", is a resounding 'Yes'. This may not be the worst film I've ever seen, but my brain seems to have repressed all memory of the others. This horrible flick hovers just on the borderline: bad enough that the thought still causes pain, but not quite so bad that my internal censors have obliterated it from my consciousness.
It's difficult for me to imagine what the director and the cast thought they were doing when they made this, or why they went ahead and released it once they'd made it. I doubt anyone involved with it earned very much, but surely between them they could have got together enough money to buy up all the prints and have them burned.
This is a movie that has nothing whatsoever to recommend it. It's not even enjoyably bad. It's just a non-movie in which nothing interesting happens. I gave serious thought to taking it back and demanding my money back, which is not something I've ever done before.
Don't even think about renting (much less buying!) this horrible non-movie!
This movie was SO stupid I couldn't believe what I was seeing as I was
watching it, it was like a huge train wreck -- I couldn't look away
because it was just SO horribly awful! I can honestly say I've never
seen anything this bad in my whole entire life. It was so cheesy and
the acting was just so deplorable that I just kept thinking "this just
has to be some kind of a joke, right? Nobody would actually make a
movie this crappy on purpose, right?" I really hope this is all just a
bad joke and these people don't actually expect people to watch this
with a straight face, and I really hope the people who were in this
movie were doing terrible acting on purpose and don't actually believe
that they are good actors?! The drag queens are pretty funny to watch,
though, and so are the cheesy special effects straight out of a bad
80's sci-fi movie.
Only watch this if you've already seen every other movie in existence first and there is nothing left to watch at all! I would give this a "0" if it were possible.
Watching this movie really surprised me. I have never found myself to
stop watching a movie in its entirety because 3 dollars to rent a movie
is a good amount of money and darn it, I should at least watch the
whole thing and get my moneys worth. I made it through about 30 minutes
of this absolutely crappy movie when I thought to myself, I am now a
little more dumber after watching this movie. I can't believe that the
director and actors in this movie actually had that low of respect for
themselves to allow this to be released!
There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said by the other reviewers, but even in the worst of films there are usually one or two decent performances...not in this piece of pathetic garbage. I've seen better acting in high school plays. Every, and I mean every 'actor' is bad beyond belief, and what's truly amazing is the uniformity of the badness...gosh, it must have been the director. Where did they get these people?
This is possibly one of the worst horror movies I have ever seen. Although entertaining in places due to its laughable script and even weaker acting, and I use that term very loosely, it is unfortunate that this film was not consigned to B movie hell for all eternity. What could have been a good idea has been ruined by an ultra low budget, poor sound and effects and actors who probably earned their wings in children's television, and poor children's television at that.
Please, STAY AWAY from this movie. Not even worth a minute of your time.
