Wow, I've seen some bad films before, but......
20 August 2003 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

This movie is utterly horrible. I cannot think of one good point to write about. The plot sounded like maybe it would be in the style of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or "Slauhghterhouse", or maybe even a bad Troma movie like "Mother's Day". Those films and even their worst imitators over the years are vastly superior to "Junior".

The character played by Junior is entirely laughable, he jumps around like a monkey with a black muzzle over his face making him appear to be a deranged Vulture.

The "scary scenes" in the movie are hardly scary, not even remotely creepy. In one scene we have a girl sitting in a car hearing noises pounding on the top of her car. This scene goes on forever and becomes tedious in the worst way. I found myself bored 10 minutes into viewing Junior, and I kept hoping maybe it would get better. But no, it actually got worse up to the very end!

Apparently Junior is a foreign film, and I usually love foreign low-budget horror movies. This is just another garbage title distributed in the states by Artisan, and they are masters of that art form. The cover to the DVD/Video in the video store might sound pleasing, but it's anything but enjoyable.
