      Peter Sobczynski The Spool [F]or all the amateurishness on display, there is something about its earnest goofiness that allows one to forgive its occasional dull moments and misfired gags.  Mar 31, 2023 Full Review Sandy Yaras Los Angeles Free Press The humor is honest; it's not superimposed to hide weakness. Dec 17, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Exactly the sort of low-budget picture one would expect to be the calling card of a young kid weaned on classic movies and tattered issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Sep 4, 2005 Full Review Daniel M.

      Audience Member See you next Wednesday for my review…. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/22 Full Review Audience Member This is not a horror film or indeed a good film. Rubbish. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member ‘Schlock’ is a terrific spoof of b-horror/sci-fi that pays homage to everything from ‘Frankenstein’ to ‘The Blob’ and more. It’s a great debut from John Landis that really shows his love of classic creature features. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/05/20 Full Review Audience Member Mel Brooks did it better as lufoque comedy Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome cult classic Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a rediculously movie; very cheaply made, but it's still a charming effort. There's some pretty goofy effects that are attempting to show the guy in the Gorilla costume has extra strength. I think if you can get past that you'll notice there are some pretty well timed sight gags; in the style of National Lampoon films. A serviceable slapstick film Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
