All Critics (3)

Raw greatness that refuses to be contained by mediocre skin.

Full Review… | October 9, 2011

A different kind of horror film; a Japanese-American co-production that works in spurts.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Strange, sometimes amusing sci-fi horror.

Audience Reviews for The Manster

For a B movie, The Manster was not half bad thanks to the nice special make up, but it still didn't fail to bore me to death.

79% "I gotta get it out of me!"-Larry Stanford (Peter Dyneley) Dr. Jykell and Mr. Head. Sam Raimi seemed to have liked it.

Strange plot, crazy effects, and overall an interesting story. It's not the most well written story, filled with confusion and bumps, but it's entertaining for someone who likes older Japanese horror.
