Heheheheeee! This movie is soooo bad it's good! It's so funny! One time, this guy turns to his friends and says, "Guys, I think we're in the hood." It's so funny cause the way he says it, he sounds like he's giving his son a talk about sex! The movie's about these dumb high school kids with their even dumber bus driver (she doesn't even know where their High School is!!!) who get lost in "THE HOOD!" They meet this weird guy with white hair and huge sun glasses who collects people's heads. He tells them to go hide so he can play a game, and then this one guy who looks like the Predator's inbred relative suits up and tries to kill everyone. Some great parts are when the bus driver gets shot and some blood pops up on her face, but there's no wound! Another is the first time the Star Hunter is shot, he explodes; next shot, he's just fine! Plus, every time he's shot after that they show the same scene of him grabbing his left shoulder! The best part: the little robot at the beginning!

MST3K fans won't want to miss this one.
