    Yeah, I remember this movie. That’s Rae Dawn Chong, Tommy Chong’s daughter.

    I remember renting this one long ago, Me and my brother about broke a rib laughing when it got to the part where he eats a rat.

    Thanks for the memory boost.

    It’s awesome how James has made a lot of these videos for the time he’s gonna be making the movie. I always thought that the movie reviews were the best & now there is enough of them comin’ out so this is luxury for me! 😀

    I think I have seen countless clips of head explosions and they may have all been from this one film?!

    Great alien justice system. Send convicts to other planets where they have to kill the natives.

    was awesome!

    Damn Chong’s daughter hit the crap barrel and kept on digging. At least she’ll always be known for Commando.

    kinda reminds me of a comic called Terror Inc. where a guy is cursed with the ability to attach body parts to himself. but the parts decay over time so he swaps them fairly often.

    OlaviPössi, that’s one of the reasons I love Cinemassacre. James and Mike actually care about their fans unlike some other people. I always get excited when there’s something new here, because it’s always quality material. That’s all I have to say. Have a happy day 🙂

    @FunkyFreshB You too, quality is only James’ middle name… what IS is middle name?!

  • April 20, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Wow, I have to see this movie!

  • April 20, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Hey, you managed to squeeze this in during your shootings? Nice!

    Oh, and a small comment about your filming. I heard that there was gonna be rain just as you were gonna film some desert scenes.
    Now, I’m sure that as soon as you got the money you felt you just had to get this film over and done with, but did your plans have to cross a month notorious for its showers? 😉

    Ahhh I hoped I could at least find a region free DVD or something, but all I found was this shitty laserdisc!

    “Fuck Me, Fuck You” should be in an AVGN episode.

    Gosh, all I remember from this was the rat-eating scene. I always confuse this movie with The Hidden…

    Nice Review.

    I am almost cetain I have seen a tv show (pg-13) based on this!! An alien criminal is condemned to a human body, wears sunglasses and doesn’t get human culture. He was bolkier and acted more like the terminator though… and sorta solved crimes without murdering people I think…

    Wow, what an odd movie. Kinda’ on the level of something like Idle Hands.

    I can’t believe the parents are watching Garbage Pail Kids. People in a bad movie, watching an even worse movie! Both that were reviewed by you an Nostalgia Critic! The Universe may implode!

    Actually saw this on TV a long time ago, though I only made it halfway through, as I found it too nasty at the time.
