Plot
This is one of Full Moon Pictures’ sturdiest films. It has a good hook, pleasant exposition, and colorful characters. There’s the conman, who looks anything but, who robs a librarian, who, in turn, seeks the help of a sloppy private detective. Turns out the creepy conman is also an abductor and a mad scientist, of all things. But there are four archetypes far more fascinating than these guys...
Paradoxically, the fun ends where the horror starts. Dutch angles start piling-up shortly before and passed the halfway point. Now, one thing that’s really interesting about this movie is that its renditions of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, and The Wolfman are played by short actors. Full Moon specializes in everything miniature, and they’re at it again. This detail matters in the plot.
The weakest technical link is the score. It sticks out and it sounds cheap. That too, Full Moon’s fond of. If you know what I’m referring to, then you’ve seen movies like this one already. It looks and feel like a horror movie for teenagers but with a bit of erotica and monster rape for good measure. This came out at a time when Charles Band raised your kids for you. Look where it got us!
