Pretty cheesy, but it knows what it is and does it well. Stylishly shot with some solid gore effects from KNB and an amusing cast, especially Larry Drake and his cavalcade of bad puns. Good fun for cult movie fans.
It is confident, but it entertains for not trying to be more than what it offers. As insane as it was, the scene in which young Evan (the killers) crawls out of his dead mother's body was disturbing (and impressive).
