Sorry to disappoint the soft cotton candy and warm fuzzy world of most film-goers, but there are a vast spectrum of film out there. Just as in any art form, music, theatre, painting and.... yes, film.
This film was produced by people sincere in trying to make some entertainment, maybe a little personal fame and some recognition for their community. Okay, so they failed.
The plot has been covered, with various levels of competence, no need to add anything to that, just a few observations and some background. The man who played Torgo, who everyone following the MST3K version laughs at for having "big knees" was actually in the costume of a satyr that he had made himself. If you had seen the real version (without fake theatre seats and characters covering the bottom fourth of the screen as in MST3K) you would have seen his cloven hooves, look at any rendition of a satyr and you will see the large animal-like thigh muscles. What was being tried with the Torgo character's knees was not just out of the blue, there was a method to the madness.
The man who played Torgo killed himself either just before the film was released or just after (reports vary). Apparently he had trouble with drugs and came from a very strict family. And this film was the only film work of the great majority of the cast, it was their one shot and they took it.
But yes, the film is fun to laugh at, it is inept and scattered. But in the laughing from your safe couch where no one expects anything of you, spare a thought for the heart that went into making a picture like this. And if you want to see the worst movie ever made that no one (even , gasp, MST3K) has ever heard of, see a film called "The Legend Of Blood Mountain", made about the same time in the Atlanta area.
Recommended with the proviso that you know that low-budget regional films like this are truly in a category of their own.
