Reviews [click links to read more]:

“I like that they’ve made a film that doesn’t rest on its own cult potential alone. This isn’t a case of filmmakers deliberately setting out to make a “so bad it’s good” movie, the way I could easily imagine something like this going. I’m not wild about the film in the end, but it’s not for lack of trying.” F This Movie!

” …has some genuine comedic moments that I appreciated. The film’s characters are clearly superficial and derived from the pages of a comic book and many of them exist only as vehicles to deliver the jokes of the film, a good amount of which land properly.” Irish Film Critic

” …a perfect blend of comedy and horror that creates a sea monkey world where Bubba the Redneck Werewolf radiates with rib-tickling slapstick humor aimed to be darkly unapologetic and fused with embellished illustrations of spew and blood splattering mayhem.” It’s Bloggin Evil!

“The cast are totally into it from the off (Stephens is a likeable stooge; Lass impresses physically as the furry version of Bubba; Thomas nails her role superbly, providing the heart of the film by injecting true warmth into what could’ve easily been a throwaway performance). Stephen Biro’s screenplay offers a savvy blend of wisecracking humour, action and irreverence.” SGM
