"Title says it all"
1 stars

A terrible gorehound variation on LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, this shot-in-Texas horror flick currently sits at number 79 on the worst movies list at the Internet Movie Database. That there might be 78 movies in the world worse than THE ABOMINATION fills me with dread--what other terrors lurk on the shelves of my friendly neighborhood video store?

Sporting one of those outrageously tacky plots that only the most inept hacks can conceive, THE ABOMINATION features a young man who accidentally swallows a cancerous tumor his mother recently puked up (don't ask). He in turn pukes up the tumor, which is actually the Anti-Christ (don't ask). And... I got a little confused here, actually, but the end result of all this vomiting is that a bunch of flesh-eating creatures take up residence in the kitchen. Our hero feels compelled to don sunglasses (he looks like Tarantino), kill people, hack up their bodies, and feed them to these ravenous thingies.

I mean, this flick is bad. Bad acting, bad effects, bad fake blood (I think it's Kool-Aid), bad plot. And really bad dubbing, which fails entirely to disguise the obvious fact that they shot this baby MOS. The entire movie is dubbed. That wouldn't be so bad except the voiceover narration sounds exactly like the dialogue.

Incidentally, the opening five-minute "nightmare" sequence includes pretty much all the gore shots--which is to say that you can literally shut the movie off before the opening credits and not miss a damn thing.

Better yet, don't turn it on at all. Unless you're a vomit fetishist.
