I've seen bad movies but...
25 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

...this movie is so horrible David Berkowitz should sue Ulli Lammel for using his story without permission. Satan himself should sue Lammel for damaging his reputation. Avoid this movie! I'm sorry I added it to my collection. Just how bad can this be? The neighbors talking dog turned in the best performance. I watched Woods of Evil AND Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters, this was worse than WOODS but not quite as insufferable as HUNTERS. I believe if Berkowitz had known this movie would be made he would do things differently. This is so horrible it couldn't even win a Razzie for BAD films. The movie had a budget of like $2k and it shows. Just please, friends won't let friends watch this movie.
