I won't go into details about the plot here, that's been covered by other reviewers extensively.

A copy of this film sits beside another great comedy / horror - Army Of Darkness. While Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer doesn't take as many risks as that film did, it certainly delivers a good time to people who love the horror comedy genre. With a fairly inexperienced cast - except for Robert Englund, a love of foam rubber, exciting directing style, and a story that works better than your average horror movie, this film surprised me.

The performances are energetic, fun, and when they cross over into camp, they don't try to be too serious. The special effects are very well done considering the materials and the actors know how to sell the situations they find themselves in. When things are too rubbery to believe, they push things a little further so they become intentionally comical.

These film makers seem to realize something that Hollywood has forgotten. There's room for serious camp in the film industry, and when it's done well, it is just as entertaining as anything else to the right crowd. Aside from that, there are plenty of young actors in this film that I think we'll see a great deal of in the future.

Bottom line? If you're a fan of the Evil Dead series, liked Return Of The Living Dead, or enjoy other classic camp in general, this DVD belongs on your shelf.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 25 2016
Format: DVD
Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) witnessed the murder of his family by a morlock looking monster as a child and ran away. Since then he has had anger management issues which provides us with much of the comedy aspect of the film. Part of his counseling is to take a chemistry night class with Professor Gordon Crowley (Robert Englund) along with his girlfriend Eve (Rachel Skarsten) who he mostly ignores.

Crowley lives in the house on top of Watson Road which has a history. The plot, isn't too hard to figure out, but basically there is just one real monster battle, although there are a number of them he has to fight, I was expecting something different. From the title I expect some kind of Dylan Dog type of film. It was not. The film leaves off for a sequel that never came.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity. Monster horror/killing. Blood. Soft 4 stars.

Jack Brooks Monster Slayer is directed by Jon Knautz and starring local Ottawa (my hometown) actor Trevor Mathews. I could go on about the tecnical good and bad of the film and bore you with details that as a viewer you probably wouldn't care about, but I'm not going to do that. The bottom line is, this movie is a low budget production, and for a low budget production, Jack Brooks Monster Slayer is a genre film worth picking up. I've seen a ton of low budget films over the years, and very few can proudly sit on the same shelves as some our cherrished genre icons and masterpieces. Jack Brooks can! It may be far from a masterpiece, but it holds a charm that is found in most 80s classics. Yes the film has a very 80s feel to it, and if this were made 20+ years ago, it would definatley be one of the best of it's time. Any fan of the genre should own a copy of this film.
