Camp silliness--Goofy, lightweight gore.
This has all the makings of an underground camp hit, but just barely misses the mark. It is funny and totally does not take itself seriously. So if you are looking for a serious sci-fi, horror, or gore pic--well this is the wrong flic for you. And you will be offended. If you want a mindless somewhat funny pic for some late night watching, this might be worth a viewing.
The film does not have any big "names" in it, or actors that really have become big in the 12 years since it was made (as of 2007). Is this good or bad . . .well you don't wonder how the actors decided to so something so silly. Much of the female acting is pretty good. It is good enough that you don't see the jokes coming. The male acting is too silly and it predicts the jokes to their detriment.
There are visual as well as story homage to some of the low budget sci-fi films of the 50's and 60's. This is good.
The reviews and comments that pan the movie for not being serious enough don't seem to get that this is foremost comedy and satire and in fairness should be reviewed as such first.
