A movie that gets worse by the minute.
25 March 2008 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As this movie progresses it just gets worse and worse and all the more ridicules. What a waste of such a fine idea.

I must admit that as a fan of classic monster movies, the premise of this movie sounded interesting and fun to me. A couple of monsters from an 1951 B-movie know to escape from a movie and cause mayhem in a town during Halloween eve 2003. I know, it doesn't sound like "Citizen Kane" but as a fan I would expected this movie to provide plenty of fun and to simply entertaining and pay homage to all those bad B-monster movies from the '50's. Unfortunately the movie unintentionally turns into a bad B-movie itself by making some poor discussions with its story and characters and because it simply does not provide enough entertainment.

Biggest mistake the movie made was that it let a kid be the main character of the movie. Why oh why? Does this make this a kids movie as well? I don't think so, since this movie hardly entertains and possibly even gets too scary for the young ones at times. So exactly what kind of an audience was this movie targeted for? I really wouldn't know. It's not good and subtle enough to entertain the fans of '50's B-monster movies, it's too simple and childish for adults and it's too scary and boring for kids.

The movie of course already had a quite ridicules concept to begin with but it gets conceived all the more ridicules in the actual movie. The storytelling is extremely poor and the actors obviously had a hard time handling the bad dialog. You can almost see it in their eyes at times; 'What am I doing in this movie and what am I saying here?'. This approach could had worked, had it been done on intention and as a sort of homage to all those badly written B-monster movies from the '50's, with bad dialog and actors. But this movie clearly didn't intended this and preferred to choose a more serious approach, which about the worst thing they could had done.

The movie does have some surprising good actors in it but like I said before, they don't really know to handle the movie its bad script and dialog. Perhaps it's Adam Baldwin that gives the only good performance of the movie. George Kennedy's and Linda Blair's role is also too limited to leave a big impression really.

It's also one of those movies with a typical made for TV look, with also some real bad editing and musical score.

This movie is a real waste of a good idea.

3/10
