Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode
Watch the Whole Movie!
Spookies is the very last of our Octoberween 3 bad horror movies of 2015 and what the hell do we say about this POS? Well it stinks.
This is just one of those hot messes that some people will love and some will hate. There is some pretty fantastic moments and then there are others that are long and drawn out and get a little tedious. Some of the makeup and effects look great, some others look terrible. The good news is that none of it makes a lick of sense.
There's some really poor acting in this jobber but there's just not enough of it. The actress that plays Carol before she gets telepathically into Reegan from The Exorcist is truly bad and would really have carried the whole movie with her woodenness but her lines get dubbed over by the voice of the Sorcerer who isn't near as fun. The other actors have sprinkles of bad acting moments but they don't have enough lines to keep you watching the film for the awful acting.
The highlight of the film is certainly the farting Muck Men. This sequence should bring most bad movie fans to tears.
The film is pretty riffable with some really stupid characters to make fun of, inappropriate love scenes, a Ouija board that mostly acts like an intercom, some poorly executed trips and a fight scene that is pretty ridiculous, poor medical care, etc. However, the fact that two huge boobs are constantly in your face but never come out will get your pretty frustrated. It's incredible that those boobs didn't come out. It's distracting as you're mostly asking yourself if they are ever going to come out instead of putting effort into riffing.
Two out of three of us didn't enjoy this movie. By Rotten Tomatoes method of rating, that's a 33%. Not good. However, this reviewer thought that it was still worth doing. There is a few stale parts but when things happen they are good enough to carry you enough to the next nanners bit.
