Nightbeast: A Scathing Critique on Postmodern Consumerism
Every once in a while comes a movie that shakes a nation to its core... Nightbeast is very much the case.
SPOILER ALERT! This movie is sweet.
The movie starts with a photo realistic space scene in which the "Nightbeast", a sweet alien, crash lands on earth and immediately starts killing as many things as it can. The nightbeast sports a stylish silver v-neck jumpsuit as well as a mouth of teeth that looks like it's been hit with a steel pipe. The beast's preferred method of disposal is his extremely rapid-fire laser pistol, but he will tear you apart if it's necessary/cool. Right away you know the beast is awesome because he kills an uncle in front of his young niece and nephew... and then kills the kids too.
Our main protagonist is Sheriff Cinder, a hardened cop with a penchant for monotone demeanor, tan lines and sexism. He basically hunts the nightbeast and drags lots of volunteers into their nasty demise. With him is his equally monotone deputy Lisa, who becomes the love interest of Cinder (watchout for the rad sex scene). There are a few other supporting actors sprinkled in: Steven, a fearless scientist who pretty much saves the day. A goofy mayor named Bert who doesn't seem to care about mass murder... and who doesn't love a pool party!? The mayor, along with his fling Mary Jane provides the movie's groan-worthy catchphrase. Jamie is a dude that is in love with a brief, but topless Suzie.
The real gem of this film is the 2nd antagonist, Drago. He is easily one of the greatest villains of all time. This guy is so raw that he rides his motorcycle through the woods... multiple times. He has a cool fight with Jamie in the forest and even chokes a woman to death. He has a strange hatred for Sheriff Cinder and has the best lines. Drago rules hard.
This is a classy movie, full of great moments. Who can forget the part where Cinder falls down a ravine in the woods, or the part where the Nightbeast's spaceship blows up like 50 times. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie at least once a day.
