It's a fun first watch.
Um, what the hell did I just watch? If this film is not a cult classic, it surely should be! A few slow moments, but some of the funniest and most off-the-chart scenes I can ever remember seeing. The withdrawal scene in the hotel room with Elmer taunting Brian had me in hysterics! A fun, fun watch! And oh those 80 style haircuts and jackets! Cant wait for them to be back in style!!!!
Best drug parasite movie with blowjob humor I've ever seen
Fast paced, fun gory schlock. They don't make 'em like this any more.
A weird but original mix of comedy, drama and horror. Special effects are very nice for an obscure 80s movie but the yelling was insanely too loud... and it's the first time I have to complain about such a thing in an horror movie. It feels like a decent movie but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
