Audience Reviews for Things


Wow, I mean, just wow. Like the box art says, I was totally blown away by Things. Blown away meaning I was flabbergasted at how awful it is. I've seen a lot of craptastic movies in my time, but Things takes the cake. This film is constantly engaging because of how terrible everything about it is. Shot on Super 8 and dubbed over in post production, the dialogue never syncs up and it's absolutely atrociously bad anyways. The sound mix is full of clicks, pops, dropouts and most times lacking vital sound effects. The acting is completely hammed up, the story is a cross between The Evil Dead and Ghoulies and the locations are completely uninteresting. I spent most of the time laughing my way through it and trying to make sense of it. It's so bad that one has to wonder if it was intentional or not. I mean everything just sticks out so poorly that it almost seems like they were aiming to make the worst film ever made. One would have to ask them about that, but I'd like to think so. If not, then wow, these guys should never have been allowed to pick up a video camera in their lives. This one is actually tough to find. It's so obscure that it took me twenty minutes to find it here on Flixster. So yeah, this movie is amazingly bad, but in that good way. I can't honestly give it a five star rating based on the level of bad and the enjoyment I got out of it, but I'd say that four and a half stars is probably the highest rating I'll give a film that's craptastic, and Things is an ultimate in that category. Dig it up, seek it out, find it... do whatever you have to, but do see it.
