Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. Need I say more? Oh, okay then.

Really, if the title doesn't give you a clue to what sort of movie you're about to watch then I really can't add that much.

It's a cheesy, low budget B-movie (or maybe even C-movie) about a loser who had his family killed by a monster. Now, he's a plumber by day and a student at night. Plus he has anger issues. Guess what - he's destined to fight monsters. And that's about it.

But is it any good? Well, Robert 'original Freddy Kruger' Englund is in it, so that does mean it's not going to be completely awful and the former spiky-fingered one does overact nicely.

As for the rest of it, well, it's okay.

The first three quarters of the film don't contain many monsters. Which is a shame, based on its title.

However, if you enjoy where it's going, you'll be rewarded with a suitably decent pay-off. This comes in the form a nice slice 'n dice battle in the college with monsters splattering all over the place.

Overall, it's fun - especially for the ending. I just wish they could have put the ending in the middle and then added more of the same.
