Jim Wynorski, director of 976-Evil, Ghoulies IV, Munchie Strikes Back, Chopping Mall, Deathstalker II, Big Bad Mama II, The Return of Swamp Thing, and Sins of Desire delivers Munchie. The storyline for this picture is a childhood friendly movie from the 80s that is a little less politically correct than today's films. The comedic content is mediocre and the special effects are just okay. The acting is average and the cast includes Loni Anderson, Andrew Stevens, Dom DeLuise, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Ace Mask.
"How about pulling out that pin so I can get out of here?"
I remember watching this as a kid and not paying that much attention to it. I watched this with my daughter today and I can tell you this doesn't have much going for it. The special effects are lame and outdated. The premise for the film was a completely different direction than Muncies (which I liked better). Overall, I'd skip this picture.
