a quiet night at a sleazy bar in the
middle of a deserted area but suddenly a
guy crashes into the bar and warns the
people about these creatures that eat
He suddenly gets eaten and the people
there are being eaten one by one so they
try to trap themselves in to keep safe
and find a way to kill off these
creatures with dynamite and shotguns but
the creatures slowly find theuir way in
by tearing at the roof and walls of the
The film is at a good pace as with the monster attacking scenes by looking very
fast as you wonder what is going on?
There's some good struggling moment with
the creatures trying to break in and spit
slime over everyone.
We also have a good aggressive conversation
between Boss Man and Hero pointing guns at one another.
We have a good moment with Bozo whining and complaining then
peeking through a hole in the wall with a
creature taking out his eye. He does well
shouting in pain.
We have a great shot on Hero acting nervous while trying to open a
door to a room and prevent from being
attacked which also makes you cringe
wondering if anything will attack him. We
do have a good surprise attack though.
There's a nice funny discussion between Honey Pie and Bozo when he asks
her how he looks and she prevents
to tell him the truth after she spots
maggots around the eye that was plucked
out of him which we spot a good close up
There's a great moment with Tuffy getting to the nitty gritty
with everyone about suriving the
incidents and encouraging to fight back
with weapons and a plan.
There's a good moment with Harley Mom tied to a bomb and then her
awakening panicking as well as a creature
pulling her in and the rest trying to get
the cord to set the bomb off with keeps
you in suspense.
Bottom line is that I will give the
film credit for it's descent budget, good
performances and great horror effects but
other than that I found the flick to be a
total Evil Dead 2 ripoff
and the story doesnt really go anywhere
but it does shows some neat moments
describing who these people are in a 007
type of fashion. At first it looks like the film is going
to be a comedy when you see the beginning
of it as the camera shows a close up on
each actor and describing who they are as
there are comedic explanations of them
each. But then it gets serious more and more
when the monsters attack and the fun
really starts to happen too.
The acting is
terrifically performed which were comedic and intense at the
same time. as it's nice to
see Clu Gulager (Bartender) working again as
he played a great bartender with his
obnoxious attitude and good aggressions
Also another actor that's great to see
again is b-film actor Duane Whittaker
(Boss Man) as he very much stands out as a sleazy
cowboy and found him the best actor out
of them all.
Dane (Hero) plays a great comedic type hero
and has nothing on Bruce Campbell.
He portrayed tons of energy to his role.
He deserved the great credit.
Bathazar Getty (Bozo) played the perfect Bozo with his
wimpy and whiney attitude but not enough
that you'd feel like smacking him. He was
for sure a nice character actor.
Jenny Wade (Honey Pie) was hilarious in her role
playing a typical dumb blonde bringing
the dark comedy right on target thanks to
what she had to offer and knowing her
part inside out. She does well acting
nervous in a silly fashion in a certain scene.
Eileen Ryan (Grandma) does her job well with
her eccentric personality which draws the
story quite well and became the center of
attention to all of it.
Allen (Tuffy) really was a one tough chick
in the film and I'd say the best actress
in the cast of women in the film bringing
her character to life and seeming real
Plenty of horror
violence and very well done with the
effects used in it.
We have some heads chomped off
Face torn off
Leg chomped off
Plenty of bloodbaths

Monsters being slaughtered
and Tom Erba makes the music in
this film sound fantastic and adventurous
plus grungy too. There's also some
saddening orcherstal playing for the
emotional times too which sounded great.
We also have an awesome
soundtrack too by some stompin music
Listen to me. A storm o'hell's coming
down on this place any second. I don't
know what they are, I don't know where
they came from. All I do know is that
these fuckers are fast, nasty, and
hungry... and there's four of 'em. They
got claws like Ginsu knives and more
teeth than a chainsaw. They're comin'...
right now. So we gotta lock this bar
down. That means doors, windows, drains,
and zippers, and we gotta do it now. You!
Get a phone, call the cops, National
Guard, townies, anybody who kicks ass,
and get 'em out here. Any questions?
Bartender: Yeah. Who the hell are
Hero: I'm the guy that's gonna
save your ass.
[a monster immediately reaches through
the window and kills him]
Honey Pie: What? What's he doing?
Bozo: They're humping!
Beer Guy: Aw man! The monsters are
doing it doggy style.
Hot Wheels: Monster sex.
Pie: [Notices Bozo and Hot Wheels
have been watching her undress, wash
blood off] Act like you've had some.
Bozo: Oh, I've had some, baby.
Hot Wheels: [voice cracking]
[Both peering outside through secret
hatch door in the dark basement] You
know, you and I have a lot of
similarities. Strong. Resolute...
Heroine: You need to be quiet.
Coach: I'm sorry. I talk when I'm
Coach: It's just, it's been a
while since someone's been horribly
killed, and it seems like an opportune
time for someone to be... well... offed.
Heroine: What did I say? Shh.
Coach: Sorry. I'm done now.
Coach: [Hoisting himself out
the hatch door] Great men will tell
of my bravery.
