I'm sure when FIEND WITHOUT A FACE came out in 1958 it scared the living bejesus out of younger audiences, but watching it now, it's extremely dated. Tons of military stock footage, slow pace, lots of scenes of just people standing around talking, a slow-moving finale that seems to take like 20 minutes, stiff acting, amateur dialogue. The monster attack scenes are entertaining, but other than it's a slow moving affair. Worth a watch for fans of 50's era monster movies, others might want to think twice.
Drinking game idea: every time somebody says "Gibbons", "mental vampire" or "atomic".
Zero tension, discombobulated story, unneeded love aspect, stiff dialogue, quicksand pacing, unsatisfying beginning, middle and ending. Outside of a feeling of boredom there is nothing notable about this film. Skip it with a vengeance.
Low-budget tale of multiple cheerleader squads at a cheerleader camp competing for some kind of best cheerleading squad or something. I don't even know. Despite a bunch of people walking around in the background the main story is about a seven person team (five females, two males) and all of their personal squabbles, rivalries, etc. Somewhere among all of this wasted energy there's a murderer killing people...in very boring ways. Who could it be? Who cares?
Low body count, very little blood, brief toplessness, zero gore, slow pace, shitty special effects, 80's fashions, lame humor that's not even close to being funny, boring dream sequences. Outside of extreme boredom I cannot think of any reason to watch this snoozer. Skip it.
