Editorial Reviews

Monster truck shave gigantic wheels, carriages of steel, tons of horsepower and crush anything that stands in their way. On desolate I-55 there is one monster truck that gives new meaning to the name. It's not just the truck that is monstrous. It is also the driver. When two college buddies driving cross country stumble across the monster truck's path, they have much more than a bar full of amputee yokels to worry about!

MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong horror violence/gore, language and some sexuality.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'm a corpse burrito!" July 1, 2005
Format:DVD
If I had to make a list of extraordinarily influential horror films of the last forty years, titles like "Friday the 13th," "Night of the Living Dead," "Halloween," and Tobe Hooper's seminal screamfest "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" would stand at the top. These three films have, and continue to have, a massive influence on filmmakers. In fact, I'm willing to bet that most beginners hoping to break into the world of horror movie making lens a variation of one of these four films as their first feature. Oftentimes, such efforts lead to disaster. The market can only withstand so many cheap 'n cheesy flicks before collapsing under the sheer weight of banality. But once in a while a diamond in the rough appears, a magical effort that manages to take a tired formula and infuse it with something approaching brilliance or, if not brilliance, at least a modicum of originality. Enter the low budget gorefest "Monster Man," a ripoff of Hooper's masterpiece if there ever was one. Sure, it's derivative, but it's also a fabulously fun film for horror fans everywhere. I compliment Michael Davis for crafting this extremely sick piece of celluloid.

"Monster Man" introduces us to two losers by the name of Adam (Eric Jungmann) and his abrasive buddy Harley (Justin Urich) tooling down the highway in a car. The purpose of this road trip revolves around Adam's hope that he can intercede in the coming nuptials of a long sought after love. Harley apparently came along for the ride in order to torture his pal with a running string of bad jokes, childish insults, and general pronouncements berating his pal for pursuing a woman who has never had an interest in Adam. This back and forth banter runs on and on for what feels like forever, which left this viewer with a decidedly negative impression of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome road trip horror November 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I'm not sure why I choose to watch so many of these direct to video slasher films. Most of the time these films will make me question my existence (90 mns spent doing what?) other times my financial wisdom. Well, the reason I waft through piles of cinematic junk is that out of every 5 or 10 or so of these movies I will unearth a gem. Yes folks, "Monster Man" qualifies as such. I wouldn't be surprised if 5 years from now this film becomes a cult classic of sorts and if not well, it deserves to be.

2 college buddies named Harley and Adam go on a road trip through the desert in order to attend a wedding. Everything goes well until they get run off the road by a Monster Truck (or big-wheeler, whatever they call these things). While getting their car tended to in the small redneck town where every hick has either a stump arm or stump leg, they end up picking up a hot hitchhiker babe. As they head back on the road, they will discover to their horror that the Monster Truck is still hot on their chase and wants them to be the next ones to join the land of stumpies...

While I loved this film, I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's very original. It abides by many of the routine staples of Road-Trip suspense; a sultry hitchhiker, car troubles, roach motels, road diners&gas stations populated by mindless (or so it seems) hicks. What elevates this picture is the chemistry of the two lead characters and the synergy that manages to protrude from them regardless of the fact they are two completely different individuals. You have shy wimpy Adam, a 25-year old virgin who would be scared of his own shadow, contrasted with Harley, a testosterone-fuelled practical joker. Harley annoyed me at first but I warmed up to him real fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars a diamond in the rough February 21, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's funny. The only reason I even picked this movie up was that a few of us were at Blockbuster and we decided to try and look for the worst movies possible. The cover and info on the back had it looking so bad all I could think of was " Yeah, no way can this be good. " Not only did I watch it 3 times when I rented it, I knew I NEEDED to own it.

It's not so much scary but the gore,comedy, at quite possibly the best monster truck ever made make this a movie to watch. There are also a good amount of high quote-able one liners which are a staple of any good horror type movie.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to movies that are worth buying. It may be low budget but that doesn't mean a movie can't be good. I've watched it about a dozen times and it honestly has just gotten funnier and is still very enjoyable to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars i LOVED it April 17, 2006
Format:DVD
As another reviewer said, I randomly picked it up at blockbuster looking for something different and ended up watching this several times. Now I own it. Sure there's a few moments where the gross-out humor is toooooooo much but if you can bare with it the rest is GREAT. Good enough production value (Lions Gate) and two great characters (one of which you might recognize from SEVERAL movies including Not Another Teen Movie). I'd compare it to Idle Hands or something of the sort in the fact that the humor scenes are hilarious and and the scary scenes are really creepy. Oh yeah, GREAT ugly monster on this one, he's a scary lookin' thing. Not for the older audiences probably, but younger viewers might be able to get into this hopefully new cult classic.
