Audience Reviews for Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer

  • Apr 07, 2012
    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Robert Englund is the best and funniest part of this horror comedy. It isn't consistently funny but once it takes off it's mostly mildly amusing. It's nothing groundbreaking but it takes a lot of pride in it's absurdity and I admire that. The make up and digital effects of the monsters is remarkably well done and the acting is very decent for an old school gorefest. It's quite nostalgic too and considering it's intentions; it's got some decent bloody kills.

    Really really underwhelming.

    "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer" is a completely unpretentious and entertaining throwback to B-cinema, and despite the fact it'll never be regarded as a classic, it's warmly recommended viewing for all fans of the horror genre
