Goofs

Dr. Prell and Karl talk about how the code of the Voltaire demands no body bruises and how a victim must be scared to death. Later, at the big breakfast, they go around toasting past party hosts, bringing up highlights which include an avalanche and auto crashes. Wouldn't those two scenarios inflict body bruises?

stupid, stupid, stupid
10 January 2004 | by GafkeSee all my reviews

This movie blows like a gale force wind coming in off of a dump heap. It's terrible! It's not even a "it's-so-bad-it's-almost-good" movie. It's just really really stupid. A bunch of stupid college students go off with their stupid college professor to a stupid island to search for a stupid creature that may or may not exist, and they all act very stupidly the entire time. How this managed to avoid a good blasting on MST3K is beyond me.

First off are the actors, if you can call them that. They read their lines with perfect woodeness - were they hired straight out of a department store window? They might as well have had numbers painted on their foreheads: 1st victim;, the arrogant party boy, 2nd victim; frumpy girl who wants party boy to like her, 3rd victim; incredibly irritating whiny girl whom I wish had been slapped to death, and so on. The monster is the silliest thing I've ever seen, although as the amazingly stupid plot twist reveals, it isn't really a monster anyway. Still, it's so obviously a guy of average height in a white gorilla suit that I cannot believe that the victims didn't think to check for a zipper before they started screaming. Even the music was stupid. If you can get past the "Popcorn" scene without gagging, the rest of the film is filled with stolen pieces of classical music (including that horror movie favorite tension-setter "Dies Irae") that don't fit the action or situations at all.

Too bad, because the first murder scene was kind of promising, if unintentionally funny; double homicide with electric knife and toaster in the bath tub! But the film just circles the drain after that point and descends into depths of stupidity that I hadn't known existed. You may want to watch this film just to say you did, or if you really enjoy low-low-low-low budget crap. Otherwise, you're not missing a thing if you should choose to skip this one.
