Response to Peary’s Review:
Peary recommends watching this ultra campy flick in a theater, noting that it’s “dull” on T.V. — which I have to admit was the case for me. Despite an intriguing first ten minutes (the opening titles are clever), a mercifully fast pace, and amusing monster-costumes (which reminded me of the 1970s T.V. series “H.R. Pufnstuf” and “Land of the Lost”), I was often distracted. This one is only a must-see film for kung fu/silly monster fans.

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • Clever opening titles
    Wicked Dragon Mom
  • Fun costumes
    Mutant Monster

Must See?
No, though it’s worth a look if you’re curious about its cult appeal.
