Abandon hope all ye who enter here!
31 May 1999 | by Kelly G.See all my reviews

If anyone is reading this review, it means one of two possible things.

One- You are one of the few poor souls who sat through all 90 excruciating minutes of this grade-Z garbage about a mutant lung tumor that transforms itself into a large rubbery creature with teeth, who then resides in a young hick's kitchen cabinets, where it hypnotizes him into killing people for food. If this is the case, there isn't much I can do for you except for to say how sorry I am that your taste in cinema led you to this film. At least your aren't alone. Along with myself, I have three friends who watched this with me, who probably aren't my friends anymore.

Two- You are a horror movie fan who saw this film sitting on your local video store shelves, just begging you to rent it, and you have come to this most excellent site to get some information on it before whipping out your rental card and a couple of dollars. Unlike above, THIS I can do something about. PLEASE. I BEG OF YOU. DO NOT RENT THIS MOVIE!!! Let it lie unwatched on the shelf, where hopefully, it will gather enough dust that the cleaning staff will mistake it for an overgrown dustbunny, and quickly place it in the trash, where it may one day find it's way to the local landfill. Once there, with just a little luck, it will degrade and provide nourishment for some bottom-feeding life form who cant find any thing else better to feed on, like used coffee filters.

If I can only save one person from the fate I suffered because of this movie, my torment will all seem worthwhile. Friends are important in this day and age.
