Get your popcorn ready with a slice of cheese, because it is time for another cheesy B movie. My latest endeavor in the B-Movie spectrum is the Horror/Comedy Hell on Earth. Hell on Earth is about a guy named Bobby, who is handicapped and lives with his parents, sister and crazy aunt Sadie. Bobby's parents are complete a-holes, his sister is a first rate bitch and his aunt is a total psycho. Bobby has some imaginary friends, or are they, whom were summoned by a book of the dead, which was provided to him by his aunt. The story line is basically that spirits and demons from the underworld are using Bobby, through the book of the dead, to pass back through the other side and release hell on earth. Sounds complicated, doesn't it?
Hell on Earth feeds off the recent desire to mix comedy with horror. The acting is okay, but it is what is is, in this type of flick. The storyline is interesting and the film is actually entertaining. The movie is low budget, but the make up and special effects are done well. Some effects are better than others, but you have to remember this is a B-Flick. The film is shot very well and does not look bad for a B-movie. The plot is cool, but the acting is okay and gets a little kooky at times, but not enough to take away from the finished product. Believe me, this one won't be get nominated for an Oscar, but might just slip into the rotation around Halloween.
Bottom Line: B-Flick that will hold your interest. A nice mix of comedy and horror with a little cheese on the side.
-Ragman liked this one better than he thought he would.
