Short, i'll give it that
26 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cornman was once a normal man but he fell into toxic waste and now can communicate with corn he also has Butterboy, a stupid sidekick. He uses this power to fight Dr. Hoe, an evil guy in this low low budget campy film. I don't like these types of non-troma intentionally campy, self-referential no budget films. They might cause the makers to laugh their collective asses off, but the viewer is likely to just shrug it off, if they can make it through the whole movie, which really is a crap shoot as it's only 69 or so minutes. Wall to wall fake punk music throughout the film doesn't help at all. It's grating on the nerves.

My Grade: D

DVD Extras: Intro by Lloyd Kaufman; 3 Commantary tracks; 11 minutes and 20 seconds of behind the scenes footage; deleted scenes with intro; and Preview Trailer

Easter Egg: In the Extras menu there's a hidden question mark, click it for a short teaser for "Prison-a-go-go" another mind-numbingly awful film
