| Unintentionally campy
Martin Landau tries to be at least a good character actor, but he can't save this trainwreck. Bad sets, bad makeup, a bad script, bad acting, bad directing - even the dog was bad.

All attempts at shock and creepiness end up as unintentional camp. Robert Hays is laugh-out-loud bad and Charlene Tilton is just taking up space as his pretty but vapid bride.

The best scene is the tavern at the beginning, but it's over all too soon, unlike the movie, which has 96 minutes left on its odometer.
