4.0 out of 5 stars Things.... July 26, 2011
Format:DVD
From: [...]

The Movie:

Directed by Andrew Jordan and made for roughly $40,000.00 in 1989, the 8mm cinematic oddity that is Things, the first Canadian straight to video horror film, begins with a mind boggling scene in which a man named Doug (Doug Bunston) heads into his basement where he sees a woman in a devil mask. He tells her he wants her to have his baby, she undresses but keeps the mask on, and then tells him that she already has. At this point she hands him a bassinette with a clawed infant inside, and it's looking for a moment like we might be heading into Rosemary's Baby territory - but we're not. It's all a horrible dream, he realizes this as he wakes up on the couch, after which he heads into the kitchen and searches the cupboards before heading into the bedroom to check on his wife, Susan (Patricia Sadler), who is ill. He gives her some painkillers and they work almost immediately

Cue the opening credits, video generated titles over top of footage of trains for some reason, possibly to give us the illusion that we're driving in a car. Shortly after the credits, we see a car arrive at a remote house in the woods - two men hop out, Don (Barry J. Gillis, who also wrote and produced) and Fred (Bruce Roach) - who have shown up to hang out with Doug, who we soon learn is Don's brother. They let themselves in but Doug is nowhere to be seen so they amuse themselves by drinking all of his beer, rummaging through his stuff, putting Don's coat in the freezer and listening to a tape that they find lying around. They assume that since Doug isn't here that he must be `wasted out of his mind' and they look through a book called The Horror Of One Thousand Ugly Cuts. None of this is making much sense, right? Right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please, I beg you, Buy this DVD August 24, 2011
By Evan
Format:DVD
I thought I knew what a movie was. I thought I had seen it all. I reveled in the sheer insanity that was Horror of the Blood Monsters. I was put in a trance when I watched Metal Messiah.
But today, that all changed.

Today I saw the dvd of Things at the store. I saw the cover. I saw the man holding the drill, the man with the horrible mustache. It spoke to me. I knew, I had to buy it. I don't know why.
But then I watched it.

and then I knew.
Never in my life have I seen a film that changed me. Changed how I saw the world. Changed how I saw everything.

This is Things.

A man tells a naked woman wearing a devil mask he wants her to have his child. I think that's what he said. But does it matter?

This is Things

A man takes his friend to visit his brothers house in the woods. They have beer. People die.

This is Things.

A killer ant creature pops out of a stomach.

This is Things

and this is where I will stop describing it. Please, don't read any other reviews. I didn't. I feel I have said too much already.
You think you know what a movie is? You think you know what acting is? You think you know Plot?

No, you don't.At all.

This is Things.

If this DVD were 100 dollars, I would buy it. I consider this my most prized DVD. And I have the suitcase edition of Blade Runner.

I haven't even seen any of the Special Features yet. I think the film itself is the best Special Feature, anyways.

I plan to show this to everyone I know. My girlfriend, My mother, all of my friends. I will tell random people in the street to buy this DVD.
The back of the DVD says this is either the work of a Genius, or a madman.
I think both.

5.0 out of 5 stars THINGS isnt a movie, It's a trip. October 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I put this movie into my DVD player and was instantly transformed into a drooling, hypnotized, beer craving, heavy-metal maniac. Do not watch this movie alone. THINGS GAVE ME BRAIN DAMAGE!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hope Diamond of Bad Horror Movies. April 24, 2012
Format:DVD
This film is a classic example of how bad work is sometimes just as valuable as good work. Until I saw Things I was convinced Troll 2 was one of the "best worst" horror movies I'd seen - but this blows it away in every respect. It fails on EVERY LEVEL and does it so innocently that it's quite moving. A must-see.

5.0 out of 5 stars THINGS Is The CITIZEN KANE Of Bad Movies May 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Although THINGS was released in 1989, I had never heard of it until I purchased the Intervision DVD. Since then, THINGS has catapulted into the top 10 list of my favorite films of all-time. Yes, it's that good, although 'good' may not be the right word for it. THINGS sure didn't win any awards for acting, and it most certainly didn't win any awards for screenwriting. In fact, I'm not completely sure the filmmakers even used a script. None of that matters though, because what THINGS lacks in acting and narrative it makes up for in atmosphere and a sense of impending doom; facilitated by bizarre lighting and an eerie soundtrack. There have been plenty of synopses written for THINGS that make it sound terrible, don't let them keep you from seeing this film. You must experience THINGS for yourself, but be warned, you may never be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really cant believe I watched this... March 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
So I was browsing through movies to watch on amazon and this little.... thing.... came up. I was hoping for something on par with troll 2 and the room and trust me, I was not disappointed. This movie is terrible in every aspect you try to look at it in. which to me and a group of my friends made for a hilarious movie night. So gather round all very, very bad movie watchers, get some friends a few beers and "whatever" may suit your taste and prepare for the most unintended laugh fest in cinematic history!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the cult classic you were hoping for.
Things sucks. It just does, I'm really sorry, but it's not the "so bad it's good" classic you may have heard it was. It is, in fact, utterly horrible. Read more
