Movie Review by Dennis D. McDonald
A bar full of amputee rednecks. Road trip guys chased by giant monster truck driven by faceless horror. Sexy scantily-clad hitchhiker. Giant pentagrams. Headless corpses. Fart jokes. Blood and gore up the wazoo. Road kill fantasies. This movie has it all.
Plus decent production values, a good — and funny — script, wonderful makeup, and interesting characters.
Monster Man is just what the doctor ordered when you’re tired of the serious stuff and want to get down and dirty with choice, grade-A, drive-in-quality cinema.
I am told by my niece and nephew, who are true cognoscenti, that Monster Man is a cut above the rest. I believe it. I gave up half way through Jeepers Creepers due to boredom, and I thought that Day of the Dead sucked the big weenie. But Monster Man is clever, funny, and — dare I say it — scary in parts. Not bad, not bad at all.
I’ve added another dozen or so horror movies to my Netflix queue, so there!
