Re-evaluation: Another Look at One of the Worst
24 March 2000 | by Gonzo-23See all my reviews

It is clear by my previous irrational comments that I have been far too harsh towards this video treasure, and I would just like to clear the record. A postmodern reworking of BLOOD FEAST, BEASTIES maintains the integrity of its predecessor by introducing the subplot of OSIRIS the Egyptian Sun God (also heavy-metal and punk rock afecianado...of course, if Jesus Christ is allowed to rock 'n roll in a boring Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, than why can't OSIRIS?) and it never quite gels with the ongoing plot that plays out as a mediocre version of Troma's KILLER CONDOM. The actors in BEASTIES positively received their degrees from the Herschell Gordon Lewis school of theater, however the women are far less attractive than the girls of the WIZARD OF GORE. Even the mise-en-scene in BEASTIES is hacked from Lewis', leading me to believe that the film was actually trying to modernize the gore genre, with an unfortunate lack of sex and blood, the key components that gave strength to the memorable 60's underground horror movies. I have to say that it is a truly rotten movie, in that the content is entirely too clean and yet still referential to the b-movie God (perhaps Lewis' IS more popular than OSIRIS)...RANK:#10 in my TOP TEN WORST FILMS
