Hanna and Juran make up for their lack of supernatural thrills by packing lots of talking, fighting, dancing and drinking -- as well as a few lame jokes -- into the movie's harmless 65 minutes.

A super-cheesy yet pretty entertaining monster-flick with some campy acting and fun direction - and it's quite unhinged for the period.
