Critic Reviews for The Apple
Part Biblical allegory, part 1984, and entirely one of the best camp musicals ever committed to film, The Apple features incredible, Busby Berkeley-esque dance numbers and some of the best sci-fi fashion of the 1970s.
'The Apple' is the kind of nutty project that bad-movie love is all about: it's clearly the product of a singular, insane vision, unperturbed by any notion of good taste, good sense, or good storytelling.
The Apple is of course awful as a movie but fabulous as a camp classic -- like Ed Wood's output, it's the sort of film that triggers amusement rather than anger at its ineptitude.
A completely unadulterated bundle of the worst of cinema all spun up into one ball of madness. It cannot be described, and it can barely be experienced.
A rotten disco-musical from the 1980s that somehow has a minor cult following.
Audience Reviews for The Apple
Do you love Bad Musicals? Disco Music? Canadian Pop Sensations? The futuristic world of 1994? The you my friend need to see The Apple.
A great weird little musical, it's actually quite 70s feeling although it's from '80. It's very stylish, the story is good, and the music is great. I really liked this movie, and I highly recommend it.
An innocent pair of Canadian folk singers fall under the influence of a Mephistophelean pop music promoter in this futuristic (set in 1994) musical fantasy. An obvious attempt to replicate the campy underground success of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW; despite one of the most jaw-dropping endings in history, it's not half as bad as it's reputation suggests. The musical numbers are catchy, the easy to follow plot lifted from old MGM backstage muscials and dystopian lietrature, and the crazy psychedelic costumes and sets mean there's always something to look at.
