Cthulhu for president! Why choose the lesser evil?


« on: April 14, 2014, 08:00:33 AM »

I was fully expecting to like this movie. I have a weakness for silly self-indulgent movies with everything, and this certainly seemed to have everything, demons, half-angels, vampires, warlocks, werewolves, magic objects, a chosen one...

 Yet what a mess! What is going on in this movie? What possesses the characters to act the way they do? What is the point of all this? (in fairness, I wasn't entirely sober when I watched it, I may have missed bits)

Also, we have the most awkward love story ever documented on film. Even Twilight was better.

I stayed away from this movie for three simple words:  Jamie Campell Bower. 

Of the few things I've seen him in, (Sweeny Todd and the only season of Starz's Camelot.) he's typically the weakest point in them.  Other then that, I really didn't see anything about this film that made me want to see it.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

He is pretty bad in it, but incredibly, not the weakest point in the movie. Just about everybody else is equally unwatchable.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
