      Audience Member David Schmoeller, who also directed Tourist Trap, Puppet Master, The Seduction, Crawlspace — and the documentary that came out of it Please Kill Mr. Kinski — and Catacombs AKA Curse IV was the man who made this movie. He has a crazy background, as he studied theater with Alejandro Jodorowsky and was mentored in film by legendary director Luis Buñuel. This is the story of a young man named Corey Thorton (Michael Bendetti, who you may remember from the last season of 21 Jump Street or perhaps from Screwball Hotel) who has come back to Louisiana — originally, they were going to shoot this in Romania — to learn that his father's mansion is filled with a secretive cult and bird people that can raise the dead, plus there's lots of black magic, a brothel and a flying stone hand that has no body. It's weird in a good way, in the kind of what did I just watch while we drank too many beers and ate too much pizza feeling that all good rental horror should be. Oh wow! Anjanette Comer from The Baby) is there too! So is Holly Butler, who was on the TV show :20 Minute Workout and was once Universal Studios Hollywood's premier Marilyn Monroe impersonator, so it makes sense that she plays Marilyn in this movie. Plus it has a great poster. If your video store didn't have this up on the wall, you may have had a bad childhood. Netherworld also appears as "Resurrection of the Damned" in the Full Moon remix compilation Possessed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Incoherent plot that jumps around with many characters with no development. There are some neat cheap effects, but they don't save the film from being a bore. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Netherworld is a cheerfully campy horror film that is cheesy and weird as can be from start to finish. The premise itself involves a witch from a brothel, souls being put into birds, hot women, sex, and all sorts of other ludicrous things, but that's why I had so much fun with this film. It's undeniably corny, but it sure is a fun film to watch if you like cheesy horror films. But then again, should I expect anything less from the studio that released the Puppet Master films? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member What this was I have no idea.. something with some prostitute being a witch or sorceress That she turns men into birds. Otherwise pretty much a waste of time. F Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie started off really strong & I really liked the whole bird concept, but the final 20 minutes was all over the place and seemed VERY rushed! Like the decision to not and then TO bring his dad back made in literally 2 minutes was kind of bad writing. The lead was good and the blues-ish score from Bon Jovi's keyboardist was good! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
