Move over killer tomatoes!
28 October 2009 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

I've seen all kinds of incredibly silly and laughable monsters in various fright films throughout the years -- from the smog creature in "Godzilla Vs. the Smog Monster" to my beloved Moonie in the uproariously atrocious Grade Z anti-classic "Track of the Moonbeast" -- and thought at this point in my life I had seen it all. Boy, was I ever wrong. The giant evil head humanoid paper bag beast in this wonderfully ridiculous comedic short rates highly as one riotously inane monster, with the notable exception that for once the creature is supposed to be funny in all his deliciously cheesy "you gotta be kiddin' me!" crumminess. The premise alone is a surefire winner: Rough'n'tumble exterminator Zack Alexander (delightfully played to the gruff'n'growly hilt by Gian-Alberto Perez) and his equally tough sister Zelda (a marvelously spunky performance by Denise Berumen) declare open season on paper bags after the nasty brown buggers start attacking people. Armed with such weapons as scissors and cigarette lighters, the redoubtable sibling duo tear their way through the paper bags before having a major confrontation with their fearsome leader the Big Brown Bag. Director/co-writer Patrick Crowley keeps the amusingly broad jokes flying thick and fast, loading the tight seven minute running time with lots of choice gut-busting dialogue ("It's paper shredding time!"), countless sidesplitting bag puns, and several sublimely ludicrous scenes depicting paper bags attacking people. Acted with tremendous lip-smacking aplomb by the two engaging leads, with a constant brisk pace, a funky-rockin' electronic score, and polished cinematography, this baby overall sizes up as a total hoot and a half.
