Review by Charles Arthur Campbell (posted on 20-Jan-2008)
This is at times a silly, and nasty homage to the great monsters of our youth. When I saw this film in 1987, there were kids (under 8) watching the various characters talk about virgins blood and the Dracula character calling a 5 year old a little bitch! The monsters were played straight and the Frankenstein monster provides more than a little pathos. Also some of the creatures (the gillman for one) get scant screentime! The script was just slightly juvenile and would have made a better film for cultists. Obviously no film makers intend to create a cult film yet 20 years after the fact the film is fondly remembered. It has improved and is a welcome addition to any DVD collection. I just don't think that it is for kids!
Do you know something we don't?
