“Director and writer David Cornelius obviously seems to be having fun making “Inhumanwich!” and that energy thankfully translates into an entertaining and hilarious love letter to the Z grade drive-in movies of yesteryear.” Cinema Crazed

“For anyone who has a love of old school sci-fi horror, this is must-see stuff. Cornelius’s story and direction are on point, and the only real distraction is the crystal clear clarity of the picture. The FX are cheesy and purposefully awful, as is the dialogue.” Dead Celluloid

” …the good-natured wit of the script and the undeniable enthusiasm of everyone involved make this a worthwhile throwback parody that should whet the appetite of fans of similar films such as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and the works of Christopher R. Mihm.” Dread Central

“The ethos of Z-grade monster movies is so effectively and affectionately resurrected that the rapid-fire gags almost seem superfluous; the original films were funny because they had basically no sense of humor at all, and it could have been a lot of fun to see something that captured that aspect of them alongside all the other elements that Inhumanwich! so cannily pays tribute to.” Film Threat

” …the film expertly captures the essence of 50’s Sci-Fi movies and gleefully pokes fun at the genre. The movie is entirely self-aware which works wonderfully to its benefit. If you want to talk about beating a joke to death, Inhumanwich! not only does just that but also digs that joke up and bludgeons its rotting corpse like the hilarious piñata it is.” Morbidly Beautiful

“Cornelius obviously loves and respects the goofy monster movies that inspired Inhumanwich!  But rather than make them the butt of a singular feature-length joke, he crafted a fun and silly tribute with its heart in the right place that hits all of the buttons.” The Movie Sleuth

“Creating an intentionally bad film that ends up as something entertaining rather than utterly disposable is much harder than you might think and examples of complete successes are very few, but the blunt force nostalgia trip of Inhumanwich!, in all its sensationalised yet straight-faced absurdity, can be counted among them.” Starburst
