Finally the whiny little kid is the only one left. For some reason, an eye appears on his hand, which he manages to get rid of by stabbing himself with a piece of glass. Eventually, Satan, who looks like Godzilla, breaks through the floor of the house (Or at least I assumed it was supposed to be Satan. I may be wrong. The scriptwriters of this movie apparently saved time by dispensing with such unnecessary plot elements as "reasons for things to happen."). All ends happily, however, when the whiny little kid kills him with a model rocket. In a puerile stab at sentimentality, the kid's siblings and the ex-decapitated dog all run out of the closet at the very end of the movie. This was one of the first horror movies I ever watched, and its utter awfulness haunted me for days to come. It's one of those very many mid-80's movies which was bad enough to hurt, yet not quite cheesy enough to attain piss-your-pants-laughing status.Erica Drescher, ADresc9197@aol.com
As the film goes on, it's obvious that Ed Wood was running out of ideas, because for about the last 30 minutes of the film, all we see are laughing people, chanting strange and diturbing things, and this little satan guy who keeps popping up a lot. A tree also falls on Glen's girlfriend about this time, but I don't know why.
The movie is also intermixed with shots of Bela Lugosi saying stuff like 'Bevare!! Bevare!!' from an old haunted house. Why he's in this wretched film, I don't know. Way, way worse than Plan Nine From Outer Space, which, although heralded as the "Worst Movie Ever Made", is definitely not. Compared to this one, it's practically Titanic.Kryten, email@example.com
The hero is an unemployed cartoonist (probably because when he was asked to draw monsters of what kids fear most, he made "the monster of over-protective mothers" and "The monster of too much homework") He submits drawings to a soon to open Monster based theme park. Home of the Godzilla tower ("the elevator goes right into his head!") The people at the theme park are aliens, and call space monsters to help them, Godzilla and a friend fight them.
Things to watch for:
Jaeckel plays the commander (though you'd never guess it from the way he acts) of a space station, which discovers a huge meteor on a collision course with Earth. After a boring debate about what to do about it, Robert Horton, playing a bossy egotistic former commander, is called in to destroy it. For some reason this involves actually *LANDING* on the meteor, where a member of Horton's team picks up a wayward piece of the titular Green Slime on his space suit. The slime eventually mutates into an alien that feeds on electricity. The alien, which looks like a cross between Sigmund the Sea Monster and Oscar the Grouch, must be seen to be believed. Shooting the alien does no good, because its blood spawns more creatures. (Well, I can see how- HUH?) Eventually, after many failed plans and horrible deaths, the space station is evacuated and destroyed. Somehow throughout all this, Hortan still manages to get the girl, even though she's engaged to Jeackel's spineless commander, who dies in a semi-heroic rescue.
Well, there you have it. Stupid monsters, models that look like inflatable bathtub toys, and no acting skills whatsoever. The *ONLY* good thing I can say about this film is that it had a cool theme song.Becky "Gypsy Jr." Mroczkowski, firstname.lastname@example.org

I seen this so called film, a few months ago, and am still wondering what kind of wonder drug I was on. This movie did not focus on anything, even if the makers of it had made the plot about somthing other than idiots in caves it might have been good. No focus was done on Grim him self, just focused on people getting lost in caves. You'd have so much fun MiSTing this, you'd have an easier time with this than say The Terror.Andrew Munroe, email@example.com
