Warning: the rape scene at the beginning is very explicit. You've been warned.
Some people will love this film and others won't. It depends on your taste, but I've seen it numerous times. It also doesn't get into the background of what's going on with this Nick character. If you're a huge fan of 80s horror you'll probably like it because the entire thing has an 80s type feel to it. The director (Paul Lynch) was the director of the original PROM NIGHT. Like that film, there isn't a lot of gore here. The goriest scene is the scene in the beginning when the guy is mauled by the dogs; this scene and the rape scene are the only parts that were cut for the R rating. The rest of the film has very little gore, but some of the violence does have some impact. The killer (a deformed freak with superhuman strength) doesn't use weapons like in other 80s slasher films; he uses his brute strength to kill. He was wandering the island and eating dogs for food, but now his food supply is almost gone. Apparently, he is now eating people. This film has good atmosphere, and the island location provides nice scenery.Read more ›
What a great time it was!
Humongous won't win any awards, but it is cheap, good scary fun.
If you like the every now & then old school, low budget scary flick, then this one is for you.
Low cost SFX, decent acting and a 1/2way cool story-plot make Humongous
a fun watch. It keeps you in suspense and in a state of doom.
As kids we dug this movie, and for yrs in the 90s it came on latenite cable
as one of the offbeat scary movies to watch.
Give it a try.
[it's a 3* film, but I give it 4* just for the fun and memories it brings]
In 1948 a teenage girl is raped by her boyfriend, and in revenge is killed for the act. Years later after she gave birth to his bastard retarded son, she secludes herself on a desolate island to raise him. After she died he is left to defend for himself, not knowing how to take care of himself he preys on the islands animals and his own guard dogs for food. Late one Summer evening, a group of teens out for a summer boating ride breaks down aside the island, looking for help they stumble onto his territory, and just in time-- he is hungry and hunts the teens like they were wild animals for food.
First off, the movie's first kill was the bloodiest, a dog attack and pretty well done, in my opinion. I liked the setting. Of course, it being an 80's slasher flick it took a lot from movies like Friday The 13th. The movie was set in the middle of nowhere, it had a potentially menacing villain, beautiful heroine to be, a nice backstory, and a nice body count. I also liked the stalking nature of the killer, very similar to the P.O.V. shots in Friday The 13th. The movie was set over the course of a few days, and seemed to have nods to movies like Friday The 13th, Psycho and even Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie's killer was Garry Robbins, who played Saw Tooth on Wrong Turn.
The movie was old, and I had a DVDr sourced from VHS. The movie was too dark at times to see anything. The killer went unseen because of this, the lighting in the movie also sucked. Directing was lack lustre' and the movie in general was very anti-climatic. So much could have been done with the ending, and it completely fell limp. The movie I saw lacked blood, the kills seemed to be cut out all together.Read more ›
