The year is 1998, six years after the nuke wars reduced the world to rubble and a few bands of wandering survivors. One of these groups stumbles into an abandoned government research facility, where they were working on making the body capable of creating its own amino acids, thus obviating the need for food. They are then attacked by one of the leftover experiments and begin experiencing an attrition problem.

While this movie here is a film that will be overlooked for the most part due to other more renown films that came out during the same time, Creepozoids, overall is a really fun and to the point film. Sure, it isn’t what anyone would call a great movie, but it is clearly one that I would call a darn fine entertaining one regardless. In some ways, it has everything that made films of the 80’s great. I also have a lot of things that made films from that time campy as well. We have a naked Linnea Quigley, we have cool looking creatures killing people off, and we have it done with some really nice gore. If you are a fan of this time period it really is hard to watch this film and not find yourself getting some form of enjoyment out of it. Sure, it also has the very same faults a lot of cheesy movies from the same time had, but I think overall it is still a movie you’ll want to kick on back and eat some popcorn while watching. It is mindless fun, but it is still fun.

Another thing this movie does that isn’t typical is how it has no real clean-cut leads or it at least never feels like it does. That means it is up in the air from start to finish on just who is going to live and who isn’t. While that could have its negative sides to it, a film like this really benefits from having some randomness to it. I don’t think the movie will win any positive rewards, but that isn’t to say you can’t have a darn good time checking this one out. This one really came during a high point for Wizard/Full Moon and they could use stuff like this today. While the movie won’t be a five-star affair for most, it is still a lot of fun and this Blu-ray upgrade was welcomed from me. I’ve been waiting on an HD version of this film since I first saw it on DVD a number of years ago. Cool stuff all around here from Full Moon.
