Humanoids from the Deep (1980)
[AllPosters.com] Buy posters from this movie

"Slimy evil monsters who just want some NOOKY!"
3 stars

HAHAHAHA! Roger Corman writhes still, even in 1980! Oh man is this one great! There are these disgusting things (that are called Humanoids in the title but nowhere else) that like raping our human women! Holy cow. I assume this is NOT one of Gloria Steinem's favorite movies. And after all that a'rapin' you just KNOW there's gonna be a birthin' scene! Either rent this today or NEVER see it. You decide.

Note to whomever makes such decisions: Never dump toxic waste in the water! I could care less about cancerous polyps or babies with mixed genitalia, but just LOOK at these slimy creatures you've created! Bad corporation! Bad humanity! Here's a simple equation:

Nice clean water
+ Toxic Waste
---------------------
Chick-Raping Humanoids
Baby-Eating Alligators
Chick-Eating Grizzlies
Fake-CGI Anacondas
Lawyers

So there it is. As for the movie, well. Let me see. It was made in 1980, so you can bet the clothes and hairstyles are gonna be good. Ummmmmmm. Vic Morrow is on full display, fake hairpiece and all. Hmm..Humanoids from the Deep....gimme a second!

There's this subplot involving the honorable Native Americans and a bunch of dead dogs, but that's pretty much forgotten after you see your first cutie get gang-raped by these gooey bastards. I just can't get off that, can I? Poor women. In movies, they always get raped by the nastiest things: Trees (Evil Dead), ghosts (The Entity), Giant Purple Alien Worms (Galaxy of Terror) or (gasp!) Jack Nicholson.

I just wrote this to let you know that this is one of the dumbest and weirdest horror movies that you'll ever see. For some reason, I saw it when I was a kid. I kinda like it still. You may think less of me for liking it, but is that really possible?

Joins the great pantheon of 'Rape Horror Movies', and I recommend that guys only watch it with other guys. If your wife hears you cheering when these monsters get some booty, you're sleeping in the tub for a while.
