Storyline

After a group of boy scouts are mysteriously killed by a wolf-like creature on Cadaverous Island, Walter Romero, whose best friend was among the killed, sets out to find exactly what happened. In order to reach the island, Walter teams up with Johnny Mason, neighborhood stoner, to smoke up Ashley Valinski, neighborhood hottie, and get her to take them out on her father's boat. But soon after arriving on Cadaverous Island, a horde of zombies steals their boat, leaving them stranded, and the three are forced to team up with two cops, the mayor, and a team of botanists to either kill the monsters... or be killed themselves.....

Less boring than Surf Nazis Must Die, but not as funny as Die You Zombie Bastards!
10 March 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The plot: a werewolf, zombies, and a pair of topless girls assault a group of survivors.

I can't really say much about The Amateur Monster Movie that the title doesn't already tell you. It's a humble title, one that's likely to scare away people that hate no budget, independent movies. It also tells you right away that it's likely going to be campy, goofy, and played entirely for laughs. Indeed it is. It's populated exclusively by clichéd stereotypes, the gore can only be described as a parody of low budget splatter movies, and the intentionally bad acting occasionally reaches levels that make you wonder if they're actually reshooting the scenes until it hits rock bottom.

The problem is that the movie just isn't very funny. I often find the absolute worst movies to be rather amusing, and I think I'm one of the few people to actually laugh at unrepentant crap like Die You Zombie Bastards! and Surf Nazis Must Die. Objectively, those movies are almost unwatchably bad, but they make me laugh. The Amateur Monster Movie, unfortunately, failed to make me laugh. Out of all the things that didn't make me laugh, the one that came closest was probably the Joseph Pilato spoof, which I admit to finding slightly amusing. The other cops and the mayor were also slightly amusing, but the teenagers all annoyed me. All they ever did was smoke pot, talk about smoking pot, or try to find more pot to smoke. I did not find their wacky antics amusing, and I kept wishing that they'd die off already.

If you like incredibly bad movies, such as the aforementioned atrocities against film, then you should probably at least give this movie a chance. If you can sit through Surf Nazis Must Die, then you can sit through anything. Guaranteed. I guess I'd probably recommend this movie mostly to people who like watching amateur movies on YouTube.
