Just great!
17 October 2000 | by eviltim666See all my reviews

Man this movie was brilliant!!!! Just great! I have not seen it for a few years now but my first impression of it was nothing but joy in finally finding the worst movie ever, which if your like me and just love really bad B-grade movies then you'll understand why I've said what I've said!!! I recommend this movie to anyone, Bad movie lover or not! This movie must be seen to be believed!
