So Incredibly Strange
30 December 2015 | by abbyadams1976See all my reviews

This is so strange. A "homemade" type movie. Looks like something you could make with your friends at home, assuming all your friends are little people. The plot is all OVER the place. The green screen effects are obvious. The dialogue is so weird it almost seems like it was translated from a foreign language, but it wasn't. There's a lot of background noise which drowns out the dialogue. Most of the characters act goofy, creepy or high.

The villain is hammy and wears the same greasy makeup kids wear on Halloween. Props are things like squirt pistols. I won't say it isn't entertaining, but for all the wrong reasons.
