I'd be willing to bet this ultra gross out, "shades of Troma" film from a pre-politically correct 80s will offend a lot of newer, younger horror fans. I saw this a few years ago and hadn't seen it in years. I was about 17 when I first saw this in the 80s. As an older, wiser viewer, I could have sworn Troma was all over this and I was wrong for the most part. Troma alumni R.L Ryan plays the…
I'm not sure I could watch this again, to be honest. Not that it's bad, it's just really way out there.

Conspiracy theories are fun to dive into, and movies about them are also fun to dive into, even when they're not serious. I'd watch this again.
