With early CGI morphing in all its glory, in-your-face incest, tons of celebrity cameos, and some fairly brutal violence, it doesn’t hold much back. You just kinda wish it turned out better as a result.
And it’s a real turkey. But it does star Jake of “Body By Jake” fame! Where ya at, our 80’s kids?
