Boy oh boy it this film a treat. This is one of those special, bizarre, bonkers horror films that you only hear about through word of mouth by visiting your local video rental store. Or by listening to a podcast that mentions because local video rental stores are a thing of the past. Unfortunately. Grotesque birth scenes, a toy solider brought to life to kill someone, a toy clown brought to life, a friggin' leopard, and cool gore. "Xtro" is the perfect "what the hell am I watching? I don't know but I love it!" film.
This was the perfect nap movie. A lot of people really like this film and I wanted to be one of those people, but Robert Wise’s haunted house film is nothing but noises heard by the characters followed by constant questioning of sanity. The voice over work is distracting and the film lingers on and on with no payoff.
