Passionate archeology students search the Burbank mountains for Angela's Jewel Box, an artifact created by the King's Sorceress. It was lost by New World explorers in 1774. Now, modern air pollution has warped the strange powers of the box, giving any female who touches its glistening jewels the urge to eat men. Good-natured Gary finds the box. Frustrated with his sexy girlfriend Samantha's cold shoulder, he offers it to her competitor Janet, in exchange for sex. He barely escapes, suddenly realizing he's about to be fillet mignon. Gary accidentally drops jewels throughout Burbank, leaving a trail of "man-hungry" babes in his wake. Girls turn into shameless cannibals on the street, at the beach and even in a Burbank Bar. A mysterious drifter with a secret and the girl he loves are the only hope to destroy the box. They must submerge the box in sea water to destroy its evil powers before it's too late. Written by
How can I describe this movie? To start with, it doesn't just deliver blood-suckers, but flesh-eaters. The whole film is shot with a "Your daughter's fifth-grade play" camera, and the sound is at times in-audible.
I can't tell you if you should see this movie or not, until you answer this question: Do you like to see young women feasting on man-flesh? If so, you will enjoy this movie for all it's corniness. Despite my expectations, a lot of the acting shows genuine enthusiasm, effort and energy. Sure, it may have the production values of a failed porno movie, but this film has value within its perverse little niche. There are some inexplicably memorable and compelling performances in this film. Sure, you may root for the cannibals, but that's no flaw within this particular film's schema.
This movie reinforces something: when it comes to scary vampires/cannibals, it's all in the body language and the eyes. There's something about those deep, black eyes that terrifies me in a way no movie this cheap should. o_o On the other hand, there are some wanna-be nefarious characters that didn't quite live up to their potential. I have to penalize this film for not giving us the most charismatic cannibal we could have had. :(
