A lot of people who watched this will undoubtedly not get the joke. And when I say "joke", I'm referring to the entire movie. But I don't mean that in a bad way. The whole movie is a put-on...a send up of the old days of grindhouse cinema. It just takes more of a mockery angle than a "homage" (which I'm now convinced is French for "intellectual property theft") angle that Tarantino and Rodriguez took in their big budget flicks. Yes, the audio is awful at some points. It's supposed to be. The movie is supposed to sound like the entire thing was dubbed in post production (hell, it probably was). And everything is meant to look cheesy and low budget. As for the plot, well, that's best left out. In typical grindhouse fashion there's about 10 different things going on at once with very few being related. There's zombies, demons, Satan, vampires (I think), werewolves (I think), aliens, and Ron Jeremy.
If you think about it, it's kind of a genius move. Don't have enough money to make that epic film you always wanted to make? No problem. Just make a movie that's supposed to look bad. Problem solved. All said I done I kind of enjoyed it in a hilariously-bad-but-on-purpose kind of way. That being said, I would definitely recommend a six pack of your favorite adult beverage.
