Twelve year-old Jamie Benjamin is a misunderstood lad. His classmates pick on him, his neighbors think he's weird and his parents ignore him. But now Jamie has a secret weapon: deep in the woods he has discovered a deep pit full of man-eating creatures he calls Trogs... and it isn't long before he gets an idea for getting revenge and feeding the Trogs in the process!Written by

Yes, this is a bad movie - the previous user comments have touched upon some of the more ridiculous parts of it. And the movie doesn't know when to quit! We have those monsters, ghosts, voyeurism, murder, talking teddy bears, nudity, perversion... this movie puts EVERYTHING in it! It's a glorious mess, but it's one that remains quite entertaining all the same, because it's so nutty that you can't help but see just what insanity will come next. As well, the movie actually succeeds in being somewhat disturbing at times, in the portrayal of Jaimie. Having personally encountered autistic children, I can say that Snyder's performance, though uneven to say the least, does at times capture how one of these unfortunate children can act. Autism does happen in various degrees, and Snyder does at times creepily capture the mild infliction of it, as well as the added infliction of being disturbed (to say the least). So although this movie is (entertainingly) bad, there is at least a little something to give genuine praise to.
