Sometimes you just see a title and know that, for reasons good or bad, you simply HAVE to watch a film.
That was me with “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies.”
Sometimes you watch a movie and know that, for reasons good or bad, you will NEVER forget the film.
That was, unfortunately, also me, after having watched “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies.”
This film is on a close par with “Plan Nine from Outer Space” as prime examples of everything that is wrong with how to make a movie. What makes “Plan Nine” different from “TISCWSLaBM-UZ” (what an acronym that is) is that it feels like much of the cast and crew of “Plan Nine” knew the movie was going to be a hot mess, so you get really tepid performances to go along with the terrible plot and effects. In “TISCWSLaBM-UZ,” you get the sense that everyone involved on the project sincerely feels like the movie could be something big for them, and as a result they are trying really hard to give you their best efforts; this makes watching the film feel all the more sad, because everyone fails so miserably. So, so miserably.
