Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord who was entombed on Earth millions of years ago after a failed attempt to destroy the universe. They nickname the evil creature Psycho Goreman (or PG for short) and use the magical amulet they discovered to force him to obey their childish whims. It isn’t long before PG’s reappearance draws the attention of intergalactic friends and foes from across the cosmos, and a rogues’ gallery of alien combatants converges in small-town suburbia to battle for the fate of the galaxy.

Some will complain about the special effects. I would counter that they do exactly what they set out to do. Yes, some of the creature effects in this movie look like they were cobbled together on a shoestring budget, but the fact that other effects look as good as they do (and the gore effects in particular are often marvelous) indicates that the filmmakers deliberately left some of the effects the way they are specifically to preserve the film's nostalgic appearance.
Others will complain about some of the acting. Indeed, I was going to do the same when I first started watching it, but I quickly realized that there's not actually any bad acting in this movie. Instead, there is a cast of brilliant actors masterfully capturing the nuances of some of the acting we all grew up watching in midnight movies.
No, not all of the jokes hit as well as I might have liked, but overall, this is a masterful recreation of everything we know and love about the cheesy movies we grew up watching. If you didn't grow up watching those movies, you might not get it. But if you did, I think you'll find this a worthy homage.
Being bored and unimpressed and in many downright annoyed with the vast majority of movies in this century this movie proved a considerable relief.
The story and plot offers the most original concept in 20 odd years. The creature designs are cuts above anything that I have seen in so long. Both the animatronic puppets and the costumes are great works of art that I think the late Jim Henson would be blown away by. The lip-syncs are also welkl done. The gore effects while not perfect still get the job done. The fight choreography is lots of fun to watch. Finally the humor is completely welcome and is very clever.
I liked the monster effects, the mix of practical and CGI through the film, but that couldn't save it from the writing and characters, and making a point of the George Romero trope of "the real monster is man"(or in this case a little girl, and her enabling family) in the film was way too on the nose. There was a missed opportunity for Psycho Goreman to comment on how evil Mimi(the one controlling Psycho Goreman) was, but that wasn't explored.
All in all, there was the potential for a good movie, a classic cult film, but it was a swing and a miss.
