Pure Joy! An Instant Cult Classic
25 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's with all the low-ball ratings/reviews? Come on people, can you honestly say you were expecting something else when you sat down to watch this movie? The name alone is enough to either pull you in or send you running for the door - so, if you didn't go running, then you obviously didn't hate it.

I'll be honest, I didn't sit down to watch this movie expecting to be blown away, but I was intrigued enough to see it. Most movies that go straight to "on-demand" status rarely are worth my time and money. A mere 5 minutes in though I knew I was seeing something special (I watched it 3 times in 48 hours). This movie isn't for everyone, and frankly you could spend the rest of your life searching for someone capable of appreciating it for what it is. It's a throwback to the thinly-plotted, cheap thrills horror-comedy movies of the 80's. Anyone who's seen the Toxic Avenger will surely fall in love all over again. The acting isn't Oscar-worthy by far, but that's the point. It's supposed to be cheesy, and that's what draws you in. It's probably gonna shock you, it may offend you, but it's definitely gonna put a smile on your face one way or another.

My only complaint is that they supposedly cut 45 minutes of the film for the final version. I'd love to see it released someday with the extra footage. Also, the ending seemed somewhat rushed, they could've left it open to a sequel, but that may be due to their cutting the extra scenes.
