So, after being subjected to the OTHER movie on this tape (Humanoids from Atlantis) I didn't have much hope for this movie. I was actually pleasantly surprised.
Sure, it has no budget and the pinnacle of its special effects is a hand puppet but the movie actually is quite charming. This is a movie that KNOWS it is a bad movie and doesn't take itself seriously. The humor is hit or miss, but when it hits you can actually get a genuine laugh out of it.
This is definitely independent video at its cheapest (obviously shot during the camcorder boom), but the director actually takes pains to set up some shots and put a little style into this.
This isn't fine cinema, but it is certainly better than 90% of the films released by Troma, and is certainly worth a watch.
