everybody jumping over themselves to declare this uncool or (ugh) "boomer" (shut the fuck up) is telling on themselves more than any corny shit actually in this movie - the moment rza pulled up in a "WU-PS" truck i strapped in for a dumb wayans-y horror parody like TRANSYLVANIA TWIST with bill murray in the robert quarry/vaughn role, a sloppy regional/smalltown hangout with just enough plot to string together a series of weirdo characters & cheezeball groaner gags. so many corny meta jokes & bad day-for-nite photography that if you replaced all the critics darlings with a cast of no-names & like, ron jeremy it could be a troma flick (theres even a lil todd sheets here, no lie) and ok yeah this is one of those deadpan indie movies where they think just repeating an unfunny/wordy line ("...or several animals") qualifies as a joke (art house crowds EAT this shit up) but hear me out - dont they do that in toxic avenger too??? fucking larry fessenden is in this!! theres more-than-expected rubbery gore & a flying saucer buzzes a graveyard, plan 9-style; ends with (spoilers) everybody dying and the one surviving character concluding "what a fucked up world" lol. good shit!
