(kr) wrote: Rather bizarre film which I didn't really understand until the gone the midway point to be honest. The plot is odd and not entirely explained as you are spoon fed bits of it very slowly.Its a blend of horror, comedy, sci-fi and fantasy really, almost has an 'Evil Dead' quality to it really, that kind of dark humour with over the top extreme characters. Mix that with a kind of 'Mortal Kombat' style plot about opening portals to other worlds which lie within the "Forest of Resurrection" but only with the blood of a certain woman etc...a bit cliched but fun.The whole thing is highly stylised like all Japanese action films...its slicker than a frogs bathing suit. The main hero has dark longish hair and a full length black leather trench coat with black leather pants, dare I say looking a bit 'Crow-esque' there. There's plenty of martial arts, sword play, clever editing along with unique camera angles. Personally I think there has been an element of 'The Matrix' borrowed for this film, well that and quite a few other films, originality is not high on the agenda.Its well known as a cult but I wasn't overly stunned by it, its cool but nothing special really, a bit too cliched for me. This type of thing popped up a lot after that Keanu Reeves film came out, everybody suddenly realised long black trench coats were uber cool, gets a bit tiresome watching it.

John Landis, Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante, and George Miller each direct a segment that's based on an original Twilight Zone episode. However, these adaptations don't really live up to the original episodes, and they don"t flow together very well. Still, there are some interesting performances by Burgess Meredith, Dan Aykroyd, Scatman Crothers, and John Lithgow. Twilight Zone: The Movie is an interesting homage to the series, but it fails to capture the same tone of wonder and imagination.

The Creeps is about a mad scientist who steals the first prints of popular literature based on the famous monsters of horror (Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, The Mummy, and Wolfman) in order to bring them to life in the real world and have them do his evil biddings. When a detective and librarian are on the his scheme, he uses the librarian as a necessary sacrifice, but she gets away and screws up the experiment and all of the monsters come out as cute, little dwarf-sized versions. Yes, we are in Full Moon territory with direction from it's fearless leader, Charles Band. Unfortunately, this is one of Full Moon's lamer attempts, so you'll find yourself either chuckling at the nonsensical aspect of it or very bored with the movie (a rare feat considering this film is only 75 minutes long). The acting amongst the main players is so over-the-top, and the only person taking this film seriously is Phil Fondacaro who plays the pint-sized Dracula. I was surprised to see that this was PG-13 since they have a decent amount of Titty shots in the film from the resident lesbian library boss who also spends time getting off by rubbing herself with the work of Charlotte Bront. Yea, this film is ridiculous, and if you're into this sort of cheese, you won't mind it.

What more could you ask for? Die, Monster, Die! is EXACTLY the kind of 1960's drive-in fare that nostalgic horror geeks love (and believe me, I should know!) Plus, there is no nudity and very little gore. You can share this one with the kids and not have to pay for therapy afterwards. :)
