Truly strange horror movie that's odd enough to be watchable.

Now here's a film that screams over-the-top! The Granny is about a crotchety old grandmother (Stella Stevens, whose fun in this) that absolutely despises most of her family (comprised of sleazy and very greedy people), save for her sympathetic, unattractive (that's how they paint her in this movie!) granddaughter Shannon Whirry (whom I will ALWAYS remember as the chick Jim Carry was titty-sucking in Me, Myself & Irene) who cares for her. A mysterious man (whom the audience is clued in on at the opening of the film) enters to give Granny a secret formula that gives her immortality, but since she doesn't follow the rules, it kills and mutates her into a monster granny that goes on a killing spree whilst shouting whimsical and laughable wisecracks (a la Freddy Krueger). Titties and Gore are abound in this laughable, direct to video movie that is 85 minutes of pure cheesy and corny moments. Though the majority of viewers will not appreciate the silliness of this film, I enjoyed it for what it was worth. Clearly, nobody is taking this film seriously, which allows them to have fun with it, thus making it have a small charm to it. If this were to ever come out on DVD, I'd probably buy it!

This movie has it all. Corny puns and lovely ladies with loose morals. Gore with a little romance thrown in.
