Tusk is a disastrous film that bears nothing worth while for the duration of the entire film. It has one of the corniest stories I've ever seen, all the characters are unredeemably repulsive, the dialogues were likely written by a 5 year old, the acting was even worse to begin with, I don't know how Smith even allowed this film to be released at all. Smith never fails to disgust me as a self proclaimed film director.

To make things even worse, they landed on Mars instead of Moon where savagery Martians attacked the crew and they must escape... Not even good enough for a few chuckles.

A young girl from a wealthy family was raped and murdered on her way to light candle in the church for virgin Mary, the rapists sought shelter in the girl's family and upon learning the crime they did, the girl's father executed his own brand of justice.
The theme of religion was particularly important, you have Ingrei the pagan servant who is secretly resentful of Mareta, she failed to help her and allowed her to be killed as Odin's wrath. Mareta represents the goodness of the faithful, while Tore is God who smites evil.
I love the camera-work and lighting used, the long shot of characters were able to reflect the emotions of each character while close ups brought the tension and suspense into full effect. I love the light cast on the character's faces showing the contrast of light and darkness, reflecting the moral dilemma the characters faced.
The acting was also excellent, from beginning to the end, there was not a single dull moment, everything was meaningful and the symbolism used was able to fully convey the ideas behind the film. It is a masterpiece which would be later adapted into The Last House on the Left.

I like the effort they put in the stop motion sequence but it was still as flimsy as a creature feature can get. I mostly zoned out during the film and couldn't remember much.

A surprising twist served well at the end but it still wasn't enough to entertain fans of the first film.

Subplot including Keith and Amy getting married, Calculon having amnesia and Fry's polygamous girlfriend. Not the best out of the 4 films but it's acceptable.
