    I Feel Pretty

    ★½

    Of all the mysteries in this vast universe, perhaps the greatest unknown is how in the hell can Amy Schumer be famous? I would rather spend 1.5 hours staring at a sack of dirty laundry with a blonde wig. the movie? Predictable, cheap shots at cheap humor, ridiculous and bland.

    This is one of the many reasons why Amazon Prime is a hundred times better than boring ol' Netflix- because they are thoughtful enough to put up classics such as Demon Wind. Thank you Amazon.
    Well if you expect the theatrical equivalent of The Pianist then you will certainly be disappointed. This is simply a low budget and sometimes laughable old school horrr flick. The effects are very cool. The acting not so much. Forget about a script, this film was obviously composed as they produced it. But it's a perfect movie for 80's low budget horror buffs and drunk people.

    One of the coolest posters ever.  If I had a thrash metal band- that would be our debut album cover! But the content- a bit bland.  If the marketing team that worked on the poster had only worked on the script. If you are up for a prison slasher then this can't hurt - but after a zillion slashers this month, I needed a bit more personality.

    Such a great flick. Effects are truly fantastic.  The music  is cheap, eerie and highly effective.  There is no time wasted- this one gets right to the good stuff. The actors are great and the story is awesome. So many great scenes- the beginning alien/road scene, the adult birth scene and so many more which are very cool.  How is this movie not well known? One of my favorite sci-fi horror blends.   Now as for Xtro 2, I can not say the same.
