I watched this film as a kid, and it has definitely aged. The only real reason to watch this now is for nostalgia or to witness some pretty insane claymation and animatronics. The acting is stilted and the writing isnt great, but eh I remember watching this with my Dad and having a blast, so it was fun to watch it with him again.
Good, very good. Dark but also very funny often, this has incredible economy of motion throughout the film. The dialogue is top notch and feels much in the style of Hot Fuzz or Shaun of the Dead because it feels so much like everyday speech. I anticipate watching this again soon. Would highly recommend
