Phobe: The Xenophobic Experiments ½

A Canadian backyard production, nominally a sci-fi action thriller, that provides no action and no thrills. The script stretches out 20 minutes of plot to an excruciating 80 minutes of commercial camcorder footage. Even if any of the cast members could deliver the stupid dialog with anything resembling conviction, they're all still horribly miscast. The visual effects, evidently made with the Eastern European non-union equivalent of Video Toaster, are the least risible aspect of the production. The closing credits are the best part. Perfect for the MST3K treatment, but not even remotely worth approaching on its own terms.
