A Funtastic Horror Parody that picks No Sides; & Thankfully, Carries No Politically Correct Message !!!
Verified purchase
Film-Maker JASON LIQUORI has created a whole new Species of Monster with this Environmentally Based Beast Seeking Domination !
The Unlikely Heroes Determined to save Humanity from this new scourge is Lead by Jason Liquori himself, as 'Jack', the Unemployed Nature Loving Divorce' Hunting for his Ex-Wife 'Jill' portrayed Perfectly by DEBBIE ROCHON ! I Love how Ms. Rochon remains in a completely Straight Mode despite the Absurdity all around her ; & She's just one of the Dazzling Beauties fighting for Survival !
Lovely Christina Daoust is 'Sheila', the Doubtful Heroine who, along with 'Jill' helped create the Problem ! MICHELLE PRENEZ is Wonderful as the Alluring 'Michelle' who along with her Best Friend 'Jody' jump from one dilemma into the next . Curvaceous & Ulta-Beauteous JENNIFER WENGER is Brilliant Her Dual Role as 'Jody' & the Bikini-Clad Web-Cam Girl 'Carly' !
The Money Hungry & Compassion-Free Villain in this motley assortment of characters is 'Brad', played with delightful exuberance by BREWIER WELCH; & making her Film Debut is the always appealing XENA LIQUORI as the frightened but bold canine, who needs no Voice-Over !
I'm Now embarking on my quest to watch the Sequel "Jack Vs. Lanterns' with Full Confidence of an Enjoyable Mission !

Stupidly funny
Verified purchase
There was a fascinating idea buried in this film, and it harkened back to the 1950's B horror movies of nature going on the rampage due to radiation. With decent special effects, a decent script, and competent acting it could have been pretty good. OK, I give a pass to the fact that this was extremely low budget, using friends in various parts. And there were a lot of scenery and time and distance disconnects. In the opening part, with the decapitation, I don't think I have ever seen effects like that, and it was duplicated with some of the severed hands. Where the toy jeep got taken by the vines, that was a laugh and a half. Near the end, when they were fighting in the den, that goes back to the special effects like seen in the Ed Wood movies. And when will film makers realize that shooting a bullet into a gas can will not start a fire. This film is really, really bad but in some ways, stupidly funny. A fascinating idea, but killed by such a low budget attempt.

Move over, Michael Bay--this action makes your best movies look like The English Patient

The special effects in this movie will blow your mind. At times I thought I was watching a snuff film because the people getting killed by trees were real humans. The explosions weren't just staged by a pyrotechnic guru either, they were using legit military grade explosives. If you watch the director's cut version, you'll also find that they didn't even use special effects, they actually found a human killing forest and put together a crack team of soldiers to take out the vile evil trees. It's a must watch. I cannot wait for Jack vs. O'Lantern in the epic sequel.

Did you ever make a middle school film before?

There are diamonds buried in the rough. This isn't one of them.

I am about 1/3rd in and find myself needing breaks. The story is about as deep as any Troma feature. The actors seem to have been recruited from friends and family. The dialog is bad and at times barely audible. The special effects are right in line with the previous items.

Why 3 stars? I find myself giggling too this film. It reminds me a lot of what a bunch of 3rd to 5th graders might have put their heads together and made as a Green awareness PSA for a class project and afterward their proud parents tried to make it come to life. The complete lack of polish and horrible effects create a somewhat rugged charm.

Go For It!

Sorry... this movie is just awful. Not funny. Not scary. Not much of anything... Was this a movie shot as a college senior project or something??? Gah... even if it was, it's bad...

I normally like B - F rate flicks... but this one is SO bad that it probably wouldn't even qualify for the guys who do stuff like MST3K... |

fyi... this is literally the first 1 star I've ever given on any movie to date... and I've watched hundreds...

Fun and twisted!
Verified purchase
What a fun, twisted, campy, romp this movie is! More than once I jumped out of my skin while also laughing. It is clever and there are some fantastic bits of dialogue and dark humor. It was made on a low budget, and that's what gives it charm.

Ed Wood, cardboard monsters, and charm.
Verified purchase
MST3K Worthy, it's a 50's horror picture with the same no budget as flicks like The Horrors of Spider Island or Attack of the Leeches and it's not a lazy attempt making a bad b-movie for the sake of making a bad b-movie, it's actually pretty fun, love the cardboard monsters and costumes and though it's like an Ed Wood killer plant movie, it has some charm.

Truly excellent bad movie experience

Production values, acting, writing, editing, sound, music all terrible. Wacky, idiotic story. A true cinematic gem.
