Is this really from the same guy who gave us Gremlins?
29 April 2015 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Splatter, from legendary producer Roger Corman and cult director Joe Dante, stars Corey Feldman (child star of Dante's best film, Gremlins) as rock singer Jonny Splatter, who, in the opening scene, recites a voodoo chant before putting a bullet through his brain—a delightfully gory moment that lives up to the title. It's a promising start, but sadly its rapidly downhill from here.

When several acquaintances of the deceased rock star gather for the reading of his will, they discover to their horror that Jonny has returned from the dead to exact revenge on those who wronged him when he was alive. Clumsily directed by the once great Dante, and featuring weak performances from a cast who are capable of much better (even Feldman), this dreadfully cheap looking and terribly uninspired effort is an embarrassment for all involved. The occasional grisly death scene does little to improve matters.

Splatter was originally conceived as ten-part interactive web experiment, the outcome of each character being decided by the viewers at the end of each episode, which no doubt added a modicum of fun to proceedings; in its non-interactive form, devoid of this novelty, there is very little to get excited about.
