The film stars Robert Englund in one of his best performances in ages as a night school science teacher, Professor Crowley, who has in his class our title character Jack Brooks. Now Jack (played by Trevor Mathews who also co-wrote the story on which the screenplay is based) is just loaded with History. It seems at a very tender age he witnessed his whole family's slaughter at the claws and fangs of some sort of man/monster while they were out camping in the woods. The only thing that saved little Jack's life was the fact that he ran. Running wound up taking control of the rest of his life.Read more ›
Jack Brooks does.
Do you miss the days of corn syrup, latex, and paper-mache'??
Jack Brooks sure does.
Not only is Jack Brooks whipping monster arse,
cracking their jaws in half & taking their ugly names,
but he's doing it old-school style.
Jack Brooks likes the old-school.
Plenty of monsters there.
Plenty of monsters, but not 1 Computer Generated Image in sight.
But......(there's always a but)
Jack Brooks has a bit of an anger problem.
One he's having trouble controling.
Ok so it's a major anger problem.
But can you blame the guy?!?!
His family was killed by a forest troll when he was just a boy.
A helpless boy who stood by unable to help.
Now Jack Brooks has a psychiatrist.
A partiularly useless one.
One who might need to get punched in the face.
And then there's school to worry about too.
Which is hard enough in itself,
without having to deal with a teacher mutating into Krueger The Hutt.
Yeah it's a hard life for Jack Brooks,
but a monster slayers gotta do what a monster slayers gotta do.
Ok seriously though,
You're gonna love this movie.
It has excellent character development brought to life by a great cast.
It has barrels of black-comedy laughs.
And lots of Non-CGI monsters. (remember those??)
I went into this one thinking it was going to be as lame as a paralyzed sloth.
But boy was I pleasantly suprised!!!
You've made me a believer Jack.
Now I'd like to see Mr. Brooks take on monsters that exist in other movies.
Tremors, Critters, Vampires, Sleepwalkers, whatever!!
MORAL OF THE STORY:
So many monsters. So little time.
Anger Management is the ability to slay 2 monsters at once.
First of all, don't expect a hectic pace from start to finish as in "Feast" or "Evil Dead 2". The plot for this one unfolds more like a typical B-movie, starting with scenes that establish the characters and situation, then escalates the horror elements as the story progresses towards the finale, a story structure more like "Re-animator" or "From Beyond", but with the accent a little more on the humorous side than those 2 worthy films. However, "Jack Brooks" lacks the feeling of inventiveness that those movies had. Speaking of '80s horror classics, the good news here is no cheap CGI effects, but honest-to-goodness monster suits and make-up that you can sink your teeth into. Someone finally got it right when they decided to give us something real rather than a cartoon.
Plot summary: when a child, Jack Brooks witnessed the murder of his family by supernatural creatures, so as an adult, he still has serious anger issues stemming from the trauma of that childhood incident.Read more ›

I love this film, great performances by the cast. Robert Enlund steals every scene he is in. It's not too graphic, so it can be watched by the family (if you're not too sensitive)Published 23 months ago by Anders Eriksen
