The Characters:  

  • Kaz - Good guy at heart who is cursed with turning into a demon whenever, ahm, aroused.
  • Denny - Pretty blonde with the worst luck in men, she falls head over heels in love with Kaz of course.
  • Sonia - Denny's oversexed friend.
  • Fixer - Street psychic who understands Kaz's problem.
  • Phil Janus - Detective trying to solve "The Mangler" murder case. Seems he porked Sonia once or twice.
  • Charles - COMPLETE DORK. He is also "The Mangler" and cursed like Kaz is. Stabbed with a demon killing knife and explodes.

Buy It!

The Plot: 

I'm dedicating this one for Valentine's Day, can't say I didn't enjoy the soundtrack though. The 80's were good for something besides sex it seems... (Thank goodness, I was in high school and there are only minor amounts of that flying around.) ...and that's bad movies! What a fine piece of work a film is when some guy sprouts horns and wings when a girl bounces by sans bra. Poor Denny is cursed, she always manages to pick up scum bags - big deal sister we're all bums - and her last boyfriend stole everything. So she runs into Kaz, who is a bum, and turns into a monster upon arousal. He's such a nice guy and it is what's inside that counts. (Hehehehe!) These two goofballs fall in love after she feeds him a "fruitburger," he spends half the film calling her that too. "Hey Fruitburger wanna take a shower?" Great line, classic. While trying to deal with the fact that Kaz transforms into something disgusting every time they attempt intimacy there's another problem - the Mangler. Seems that women are being attacked and Kaz is afraid he's doing it during his transformations. Charles is the demon to blame, along with being a COMPLETE STEREOTYPED DORK he's also a Pzotossesky (You listen to them say it a few times and then get critical about my spelling.) like Kaz. Except he's a violent one with full control over the curse. So those two fight it out on top a castle, in Central Park, to see who gets the girl. This was a pretty fun film, especially the totally random guy who burps, expires, and falls face down in the plate of health food muck he was eating. Not a first date movie, get a relationship going first or you'll end up single again.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • When your boyfriend steals all the furniture it's fairly safe to say the relationship is over.
  • New York subway trains change colors and tracks.
  • Never make eye contact with a dork.
  • Health food puree will kill you.
  • Fruit burgers are NASTY.
  • Glass doorknobs make cheap crystal balls.
  • Curio shops stock genuine demon slaying daggers.
  • Satan hates chocolate.
  • Your mother's head is full of mustard. (Not explaining that one.)
  • Climbing a ladder in tight jeans is difficult.
  • There is a GIANT MEDIEVAL CASTLE in the middle of Central Park, NYC.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 5 mins - Gads I hate these guys. Go play your saxophone on some other train you bum!
  • 14 mins - No clothes your size in the store or is this the 80's?
  • 28 mins - Two second rule at work.
  • 39 mins - ROWL!
  • 40 mins - His ear just sucked into his head!
  • 42 mins - Thought he was going to say "herpes" didn't you?
  • 55 mins - Go on, kiss him, it's only a mild case of possession.
  • 60 mins - Clean your face.
  • 68 mins - Door's locked. Hehehehehe!
  • Ending Credits - There was a part called "Frumpy Woman?"

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.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
