Nice freak show, but eh.
28 September 2010 | by RocketB52See all my reviews

Think of it as "Earth Girls are Easy" meets "Eraserhead."

Don't believe the people who have written that this film is about "typical adolescent experiences." It represents a certain SEGMENT of kids, but they are by no means typical of ALL kids.

And frankly, it's dated already.

Anyhow, there's something hypnotic about watching shallow, self-absorbed, assholic kind of people taking drugs, having sex and having interesting hallucinations, but don't expect a point or a plot. Except maybe that the point is there IS no point, which is boring, because it's been done so many times.

And I would love to know why the hell Dark is the only one who sees the Alien. Or why he sees the Alien at all.

Or maybe that's too much to ask for in this gleefully debauched little flick. Maybe worth watching just for the whole stupidity of it all, but for God's sake, don't rent. Not worth the $4.50
