Entertaining, '80s style horror with a good heart, 20 April 2014
Author: DVD_Connoisseur from England

Night of the Tentacles (aka Heart Attack) is the second movie I've viewed from Dustin Mills and it's another class slice of modern shoe-string budget horror. Rather than go for the "found footage" or all out shocker, Mills' original movies have a warm-hearted '80s vibe. They're underground, but in a soft and fluffy way (at least, for a short while, Mills is planning to explore darker themes in his movies from 2014 onwards).

For me, Dustin Mills is today's Frank Henenlotter. In fact, this movie has a few passing nods to Henenlotter's Basket Case (1982) with its principal antagonist hidden in a small chest for a large proportion of the proceedings.

Mills' always leaves me gobsmacked. His scripts are a rare beast; full of terrific lines, genuinely funny moments, pure gold. The written word is beautifully captured on video with solid performances from the cast. Brandon Salkil (Mills' regular actor) is a revelation, a modern Bruce Campbell with sprinklings of Matt Smith.

The icing on the bloody cake is the effects, both practical and computer generated. Low budget, yes. Creative, definitely.

I give this movie 8 starts. It's a good 'un.
