  1. That movie was a turd on a stick… It was not even a movie, it was a “looky pooper to mouth, ewww grosss” brainfart… And I just realise that I summed up more than the whole movie with this quote…

    Sharktopus was a masterpiece compared to that…

    Actually, I never saw the film, AND I DON’T PLAN TO.
    True be told, I never, never, ever watch horror movies—I just mock the crap here.
