For April 5th- Humanoids from the Deep

I guess the alternate release title was “MONSTER”.  Weird…and confusing

And again, a movie chosen exclusively because of the title.  I suppose this method hasn’t let me down that terribly in the past, so I figure nothing really that bad can be forced upon me for viewing.

Bad monster movies have always attracted a very strange cult following.  at least, it’s strange to me.  I don’t really know the reason behind it, I suppose.  Do they like them because they’re so bad?  Do they not know that these movies aren’t very well made? Are they appreciative of children’s artwork for the same reasons?  I really don’t get it.  I may have to confer with the Internet later for understanding.

If there are any fans of B-level horror flicks reading this, be sure to post on the comments section.

Story/Writing: 1/2

Fairly standard bad movie writing.  It would be more watchable if it wasn’t dragged down by the overtly environmental undertones.

Acting: 1/2

Everyone is pretty unlikable except for the Native American.  The problem is that his name and job are stereotypical in that they are Johnny and none, respectively.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

The sets are pretty good, with a lot of it being shot on location.  The final “salmon pride fair” or whatever was actually a pretty good set piece, and was subsequently destroyed nicely.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

The monster costumes were “good” in a bad way I suppose.  I’m really having trouble grading a film like this one.

Misc: 1/2

Yeah, I don’t know where this film really falls on the spectrum of “bad” movies.  It is definitely superior to the other horror movie that I’ve watched recently with an environmentalist premise.  Hint: It was Birdemic

VERDICT: 6/10

Good for those of you who like stinkers I guess.
