Not all that interesting of a film. But Lon Chaney half-heartedly leaping over a table is the best thing I've seen all day.

What do you want?
They're all dead!
Dead Tom's dead?
That's why we call him Dead Tom!
I'm paraphrasing since I don't even know which way is up after this movie. I have so many questions. Why does he need to eat so desperately so soon? Why must he spit-wash the worm? Where did he get the caveman club prop? Why is everyone's best insult 'stupid bastards'? Is a grenade in the pants a euphemism? And last but not least, which mercenary said "let's put him in daisy dukes cause reasons"?
Verne Troyer as the voice of Pinocchio's Revenge: The Pinocchioing who escalates from defacing a doll to [attempted] homicide in exactly 1 scene. Disney really took a leap making the sequel live-action back in the 90's when it wasn't "the thing to do" (it's a joke, Disney; don't sue me).
"Even if you upload it, it still doesn't mean it's gonna work. Grrrrrrrrr"
I saw this in theaters back in college, and a few images and scenes were stuck in my head but I'd completely forgotten where they were from.
Anyway, it's a fairly shitty movie, but I'm always a sucker for tech-horror, early flip phones, outdated hacker-talk, and replacing greasy old boyfriends with new improved models.
Always remember to fear everything. Otherwise we can't control you *erm* rather, you will most certainly become a Satanist and that's bad. Just take it from this random guy's painting on how the world works (it's definitely not just christian fantasy art).
But wait! We also have stories of these 'former [bad thing]' who read one book on [bad thing] and got scared and are therefore proof of [bad thing] being bad.
I'm going on way too long about this…
"This is fun."
Parts of this are hilarious, brilliantly written, and very entertaining. The rest of it is intensely boring. I can't say I'd sit through it again, but it's worth the watch. I also can't help but wonder how much weight and cargo space 20+ years worth of cigarettes would take up.
