Trivia

Despite reviewer assumptions to the contrary audio recording did occur during all dialog scenes in the house. However much of it was loaded with off camera chatter from cast and crew and the whirring of the camera itself so it was replaced. Some of the original audio can be heard in outtakes on Barry J. Gillis' YouTube page. See more »

Goofs

Much of the audio does not match what the characters are saying. Likewise, characters mouths frequently move but no sound comes out. See more »

Crazy Credits

The song 'Gentle Breeze" which is played during the ending credits,is performed by the band Familiar Strangers of which Bruce Roach is the keyboardist. See more »

How do you get paper children? Watch Things to find out haha.
9 December 2008 | by jasonhardySee all my reviews

Where to begin? I have also seen what I thought was the worst horror movie ever made, that being "Night of Horror", but then I saw "Things" and everything changed.

There is no doubt about it, Things is easily the worst horror movie ever made. It could also be the worst movie ever made. I have no idea how something this bad could end up on VHS and then on DVD years later. I can safely say I don't think we will ever see a bluray release. There's really no point haha.

As much as I thought this movie sucked, I have to admit I loved watching most of it. The stuff between brothers Don and Doug is so bad it's awesome.

Things makes little sense, features Amber Lynn in a totally throw away non-nude part(boo!), has terrible effects/lighting/audio and contains the worst acting known to man.

I give it a 1/10 but also say it's a must see for anyone who loves bad horror flicks.
