Then, they later receive the assistance from a mysterious Aunt Dee that might have the history with a starving intergalactic beast and had been started to devour every living fad that the alien encounter.
The Writers View
The critters had always been one cheesy horror comedy franchise, but the iteration seemed to be not that good. It honestly feels even more like that one made for the Nickelodeon special than the usual actual movie. The movie plot is nonsensical and it is all over the spot.
The dialogue and the acting are amateurish at its best and their “jokes” are really cringe-worthy. The looks are done poorly and it is clear that the critters were just hand puppets. All things about the movie are half-assed and that is putting it nicely. If you are someone who is a fan of one cheesy horror movie, but there are no serious way to look for the past, many flaws will surely appear and for sure that there is no real enjoyment at all. The nightmare here is that it is really boring and that should be their last thing, I supposed!
