/ 10

The film is too lazy to provide any actual jokes with its send-up of the genre.

/ 10

Short on thrills and laughs.

/ 10

Craven tries to do this 'veggie-man' horror in a suitable DC Comics style; and with Louis Jourdan as arch-villain 'Arcane', not to mention Adrienne Barbeau (Mrs John Carpenter) as the Thing's object of desire, he's definitely on the right track.

3/4 / 10

One of those movies that fall somewhere between buried treasures and guilty pleasures.

2.5/5 / 10

[The film] wants desperately to be funny and, from time to time, it is. However, you might wish it would trust the audience to discover the humor for itself.
