The Thing meets Frankenstein
30 September 2000 | by blanc CNSee all my reviews

Sometimes you have to see a movie to believe it. This mad scientist tries to create a man eating plant to prove that the origin of the human race comes from the sea. " The earth is your mother, lightning is you father, rain is your blood" says the madman who creates the thing as the Baron Frankenstein, with a Japanese hunchback. The non stop music is hilarious, as is the fake volcano. In a strange world, this movie could have spawned a sequel.

Incredibly corny, but so much fun !
