04.20.10Alamo Ritz Another kickass Terror Tuesday selection. Neon Maniacs is utter rediculousness. Nothing about it makes sense. You have a cult of monsters that lives under the Golden Gate bridge in San Fransisco that looks like a mixture of the mutants from Hills Have Eyes and the Village People (a representation that my fellow TT attendee Brian Salisbury came up with!). They for some reason decide to attack and kill a group of kids out partying in a park and then proceed to hunt down the one girl left alive. You have a caveman, a samurai, indian, punk rocker and other wacky characters.

Then there's a completely non-sensical side story about a young, cute, horror obsessed girl who finds out about the murders of her schoolmates and decides to look into it, because I guess that's the cool thing to do?

Once there is finally a showdown with these monsters it turns out you can kill them with water. Yes, these creatures that are no more dangerous than the Wicked Witch of the West live under a bridge by the ocean.

While this movie is all kinds of stupid, it's also all kinds of entertaining. I'm always for crazy monster design and this has it in spades. You get some fun violence, terrible lines, bad acting, throw in some beers and a cheering crowd and it's a lot of fun.
