Munchies(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
As a child, I was privileged with the opportunity to watch a movie called Munchies. Due to the popularity of a film known as Gremlins, everyone wanted to cash in on its success. This is one of those, and I have to admit, the movie is pretty fun. The movie is about an archeologist who finds a strange creature and takes it home with him. A con man discovers the creature, and steals it from him, and chaos ensues.
So picture Gremlins, except if the Gremlins were horny miscreants. That essentially is what happens is once the creature gets out, it causes trouble and goes after women. Of course, the creature is able to replicate itself, just like Gremlins, but in a very unique way. The film just becomes a fun romp, so even though it is trying to steal Gremlins thunder, you almost don't mind it.
The movie spawned sequels Munchie and Munchie Strikes Back, which were totally unrelated to this movie, and also were kids films. Munchies is a definitely worth watching and is currently available on Tubi
