4.0 out of 5 stars Humongous Improvement. 7 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of a number of early 80s horror movies that centre on the consequences of rape, Humongous is often compared to Friday the 13th Part 2 and Madman because of it's hulking deformed killer. Personally, I think it's much closer in tone to Just Before Dawn, the Tourist Trap and The Beast Within. Humongous is very good at generating a sense of foreboding and panic. It's doesn't have the flat TV movie look of Lynch's more famous outing, Prom Night. In lots of ways this film feels more 70s than 80s. The picture quality of the DVD is a vast improvement on the old VHS, but it's by nature a dark looking movie.
As a slasher fan it's nice to see a good print of a decent film. I just wish someone would put out a copy of Butcher Baker, the best lost slasher of them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humongous 13 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have a copy on video and despite a couple of small deletions this is a great example of how to make 'horror' movie better by not showing all the excess gore...... more letting the imagination do the work. Like all U.S teen movies there is the quota of the really obnoxious. What makes this better is ~ guess what happens to them? good escapism.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special 18 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a cheap US horror from 1982 concerning a group of teenagers who go off on a boat trip and end up stranded on remote Dog Island, where they stumble upon a deserted house, and evidence of a strange family and something not quite right about the place.

Savage dogs roam the island, hence the name, and also something else is there stalking them.

One of hundreds of stalker / slasher films made around this time, here we have the usual poor acting and obvious situations of peril and jeapoardy, as a hulking great retard mutant goes on a killing rampage. Not much violence in this one to be honest. Thekills are all a bit tame.
There is some attempt at adding a few quirks to the plot, and some parts of this reminded me of Tower of Evil - 1972, although nowhere near as entertaining.

Basic video presentation. I think this is one for fans of the film only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Candian slasher. 21 Sep 2013
Format:DVD
After the success of Prom Night, Paul Lynch went right back to the well and brought forth another Canadian slasher in Humongous, albeit much different. Replacing the city school setting is the thick, woody isolation of the Canadian forest with Jamie Lee Curtis also having moved on, being replaced by some newcomers as well as actors who were relatively unknown, but had some experience under their belts. Despite an awkward last half hour, this fun little slasher from the director of Prom Night is actually pretty good and I enjoyed it much better than the slightly overrated "Prom Night". The acting isn't terrible, and the cast is very attractive. Janet Julian, as the film's heroine, is sympathetic as is the sarcastic but cute Janit Baldwin. The film isn't especially gory, though the opening murder is memorably brutal. The film's only main drawback is the climax, as it could have been alot better. Back in the late 1940s, a wealthy young socialite-in-training was savagely raped outside a party her family was throwing on their private island. Eventually one of the family's rabid-looking dogs killed the attacker, but by then it was far too late to save her -- but not too late for the island to get itself a new name out of the deal, and it's been referred to as "Dog Island" ever since.

Fast-forward to the then-present day and five teens, who are staying on another island nearby, are out getting wasted on one of their daddy's boats when said boat runs aground on the other island where the (surprisingly quite long and brutal) earlier sexual assault took place.
