• Many are reluctant to give this movie the credibility it deserves but this film truly belongs in the horror movie canon right along side Jaws, The Shining, and Evil Dead 2. There is no other movie like this one. On technical surface level one might assume this movie is incompetent or overly ambitious but it all plays in the films favor once the tone is established. The film elaborates on characters but it does so artificially. It establishes their artificial personality and then it kills with artificial looking special effects. It is a funny movie, and intentionally so, but when when you're finished laughing the absurdist nihilistic dread of artificiality is left over and it becomes all the more memorable. Absolutely essential viewing for fans of Horror and interesting aesthetics.
