Disappointing. No, wait... Disgusting.
10 June 2007 | by Silent_LarrySee all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of bad movies, b-movies, and spoofs of the above. Keep that in mind when I say; I found watching this movie to be *painful*. The level of humor is on a child's level, but I wouldn't show this movie to a child who's therapy I had to pay for. Worse; this is literally two bad movies in one...

There is the main story which attempts to be a "spoof" of a horror movie, and the film-within-film which is allegedly a spoof and/or reprise of the 50's classic TV serial "Space Patrol". Both fail miserably. The Space Patrol "homage" IN NO WAY evokes the old TV show, aside from lifting some of the character's names. Ann Robinson and Robert Clarke deserved better than this. I'll say this for it; it actually attempts to spoof of SF genre here and there. The killer robot's weakness was the only gag I laughed at in the entire movie. Still; it completely misses relating to Space Patrol or 50s TV SF.

The wrap-around horror movie "spoof" is so juvenile, the humor so pitiful; it's embarrassing just to watch... and I mean I *actually* felt embarrassed while watching it all by myself. Yeah, THAT embarrassing. Little or no thought to actually spoofing the genre, just a bad horror movie with a bunch of random gags tossed in. (I suspect the reason it was made was they probably couldn't complete the "space-patrol" film, and the rest was essentially padding.)

I was bored throughout. I have a collection of bad b-movies which I love like crazy, but you couldn't pay me to watch this again. Well... OK you *could*, but we're talking three figures at least.
