An upsetting but entertaining trip to the ugly side of science and the existence of incomprehensible dimensions. [Full review in Spanish]

The tone is so ludicrous and deadpan that it practically invites a late night audience to laugh as well as scream.

Almost as amazing as the Re-Animator and certainly just as fun. It has the same great effects and twisted morals. Jeffrey Combs did it again, a priceless… More
