The 31 Baddest Days of Halloween: Charles Band #27

It's October and with it comes a huge list of epic greatness. In case you haven't read the intro to this thing, I'll be counting down 31 of the greatest Charles Band movies. Keep your internet dials tuned to Mr. Gable's Reality DAILY for new and exciting Charles Band goodness. I'll begin this countdown with TEN Charles Band movies that I have yet to see. I've seen the trailers and I gotta say...I am impressed. So let's do this thing...

The Greatest Bad Movies Charles Band Has Ever Produced #27

The Trailer:

I have some mixed feelings about this movie. On one hand...that trailer looks amazing. The effects look good (besides the transformations), the story seems solid enough, it would appear to be chock full of action...but on the other hand I've been fooled before into thinking something if full of win when in fact everything that happened in the trailer happened in the last 20 minutes of the movie. That's kind of the vibe I'm getting from this thing.

But regardless, Seedpeople makes this list on the #27 spot for its masterful use of practical effects and my desire to see it. I hate it when movies (especially low budget movies) use CGI...I like puppetry. And Seedpeople would appear to be full of insane puppetry.

Seedpeople kind of looks like a rip off of several movies...Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Critters to name a couple. But that's ok...I'd rather see a Full Moon rip off than an Asylum one. And this movie was made in 1992 back when Full Moon was just climbing to its peak. Seedpeople should be a good time.

(I'm really sorry about the last 3 paragraphs. They suck. A lot. I just have no energy. I was held captive last night until 2 am watching Spaceballs with 3 chicks...how could I deny such epic greatness? HOW!?)

  1. Seed People is plenty of wacky fun and full out Full Moon. While not the pest "creature feature" I was reminded a lot of Troll 2 in terms of the special fx. Definitely one you'll need a few beers to watch.

  2. I'm beginning to see why you're such a fan of Chuck Band. The man seems to sincerely love his job.

  3. SK - Thank you for letting me know that my suspicions are incorrect. And just the face that this thing reminds you of Troll 2 makes me want to watch this so much more.

    Vincent - Can you just imagine THIS being your life? Creating absurb movies. I can only hope to achieve something so great :D
