Reviews:

“The strangeness of the storyline pulls one in right off the bat. Chemistry between the two leads (Steve Marvel and Christy St. John) is energetic and fun, and the visual look of Chompy himself is striking. My only complaint is that the ending feels a little too silly and easy, but when one’s first film is this quirky and singular, who really cares?” Josh at the Movies

Chompy and the Girls is quite a unique experience, basically because it manages to capture an anything-goes concept with touches of surrealism and absurdism, but packs it all in a well-structured story that might be fittingly low on explanations but high on narrative structure, and that manages for horror and comedy to co-exist on a non-moronic and non-gross-out level.” Search My Trash

“It’s got an original central idea but it doesn’t treat it as a gimmick. Chompy, his mouth, his mission and what’s behind the multiple copies of Birch are all woven together by the film’s story. And the same is true for the film’s human characters. They’re developed, have story arcs and, for the most part, their actions make sense. And, perhaps most unusual of all, it’s a horror-comedy where the laughs don’t come from gore and gross-out gags.” Voices from the Balcony
