Product Description

Tongue-in-cheek low-budget horror. Deranged serial killer Jack Schmidt (Brad Dosland) is cornered by the police at an old sewer complex and shot. Falling into the sewer, where an unscrupulous chemical company has been dumping toxic waste, Jack is transformed into the repulsive excremental creature Monsturd. Going on a murderous rampage in a small town, Monsturd is soon being pursued by the local police and the FBI.

Very stupid, disgusting and just plain ridiculous! But thats what makes it great! Worth a watch especially if you are into low budget/cheesy movies!

This film won't be to everybody's tastes. It is fairly graphic in its toilet humour if not gory! Due to the low-budget nature it is not the most polished film by any stretch of the imagination, although even if you don't find it entertaining for the intended reasons you may still get something from a film I can easily imagine being described as "so bad you'll laugh". There are some nice touches and I've seen a lot worse - it did make me chuckle and I guess that's what counts.

Once upon a time there was an Alligator that roamed the sewers, chewing folks up and now make way for a giant human feces, (Stool) in which goes on the rampage, in this over the top gore movie.
The movie is low budget and the acting can be a little amatuer at times, though this film as a fun side to it, keeps you watching and at times can be damn right disgusting, but hey isn't low budget horror meant to shock slightly.
Over all it is worth a watch if you are in to low budget movies and want something more than just the average slasher, that most American low budget movie makers go for.
The movie: Mad scientist, Human stool and some crazy folks, equals a fun and not to be taken to serious movie, though if you are a person who dont like seeing too much disgust, in the form of vomit and feces, then dont eat while watching this movie, you have been warned!

3.0 out of 5 stars was for dinner 26 Jun 2009

Think you've seen it all? You don't know Jack Schmitt!

For those of you creepy disturbed perverts who had a brainfart and thought this piece of crap was a good idea, I'll serve it up for you.

This is MONSTURD, and yes it's about a creature made of poop. An escaped convict (asstutely named Jack Schmitt) dies a mysterious death in the city sewer.
Of course there just happened to be some shady experiments going on at the nearby genetics research lab, and an ill-fated mishap contaminates the sewage system. And yep,(poop)is gonna hit the fan.

I know what you're thinking--a big walking, talking pile of nasty excrement sounds like some yummy entertainment. Now, this movie does drop a nice cheesy stinkbomb in your face. But in some regards, MONSTURD just passes gas.

This is mainly due to the lengthy attempts at plot and character development. We don't need 45 minutes of anticipation and attempts at building tension. Especially with this bad acting and poopy dialogue. Just quickly shower us with filth & depravity! Plus a turd rape scene would have been a welcome treat.
I did love the bumbling cops ductaping themselves with diapers(body armor) and filling their Super-Soakers with Pepto-Bismol. Plus, how often do you get the chance to see a giant turdmonster? Good sick times!

Overall, this is moderately recommended for adults with crappy-awesome tastes in film. You might wanna drop the kids off first though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Everyone Poops--"Monsturd" is a Bowel-Churning, Stinky Lark 4 Dec 2006
By K. Harris - Published on
Let's face it--if you've plopped "Monsturd" into your DVD player, you can't be expecting "Lawrence of Arabia." What you've got here is a low-budget endeavor with a clever premise and a catchy title. Anyone not intrigued by a film entitled "Monsturd" undoubtedly has no business watching this--and I'm sure they'll be grateful for that. For the rest of you sickos, the title is the most clever thing about this movie.

The plot, as if it matters, concerns an escaped killer who is gunned down in the sewer after a chemical spill has contaminated the drainage system. Covered in waste, he soon develops into a monster of excremental proportions. Intent on continuing his murderous ways, this walking pile of waste is as merciless as it is odious.

As you might expect from a zero budget film, "Monsturd" has terrible acting and cheesy effects. Ultimately, I wanted to root for this little film--but the writing just isn't as funny as you might hope. After viewing this cinematic treat, one of my friends turned to me and said "you should write a film." I don't know if he was implying that I would also produce a pile of dung--or if he thought I could easily pen something more humorous. For it would have been easy to make this a terrific B-movie--but "Monsturd" relies too heavily on its premise and not enough on pithy dialogue.

Lacking the sophistication and wit of a high-concept B-movie epic like "Killer Condom," I should probably rate this film at 1 star. But, you know what, it's walking poo! That has to be good for another star, doesn't it? If this film sounds like your ideal date movie, by all means, check it out. But be forewarned, "Monsturd" is an acquired taste--or is it a smell? KGHarris, 12/06.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's One Moody Doody! 16 July 2004
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on

This is one of the most amazing movies that I have ever seen. It would take a truly unique and twisted mind to conceive of a poo-monster that terrorizes a small town. What is truly amazing is that the movie, despite its miniscule budget, outlandish lowbrow concept, and the fact it was shot on video, is actually a moderately entertaining horror spoof that takes plenty of shots at extremely famous horror movies. I especially love the spoof of "Jaws" when the Sheriff pleads with city officials not to close the beach, but rather to cancel the annual chili cook-off, which is in a park very near the storm sewer where the giant walking, talking poo resides.
Every horror movie stereotype is skewered here, and despite the obvious economy of production, the film is entertaining and funny. Even the box gets into the act when it proclaims "It's not just a movie, it's a movement!" Sure the humor is juvenile, but as a parody it is effective and entertaining. At the very least, you have certainly never seen anything like it.
The DVD has several extras including a commentary track featuring cast and crew, as well as a "Making of Monsturd" documentary that is almost as entertaining as the movie itself. I would like to single out the musical score for praise and in particular the lyrics to the closing song (titled "Number Two") for pure surreal entertainment value.
This is a film like no other. If you like Grade-B oddball films, you can't go wrong with "Monsturd". Just don't forget to bring the Pepto-Bismol.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zero Budget Wonder 9 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Low budget, often hilarious "horror" movie clearly from the John Waters/ H.G. Lewis school of schlock film making, MONSTURD tells the story of serial killer Jack Schmidt, an escaped convict who has a run in with experimental sludge from the local genetics reseach lab mixed with raw sewage. The end result is of course the title creature.
It's hard not to get behind a movie that was clearly made with this much enthusiasm and cheesy creativity. I like that the filmmakers used the low budget to an advantage -- I mean, how much money would you spend on a movie about a sh*t monster?
What really suprised me about MONSTURD was the quality of the writing. Some of the jokes were more subtle than you might imagine, as the subject matter isn't the most subtle concept. And overall the acting wasn't too bad either.
MONSTURD isn't without it's faults though. When it breaks from it's campy, fast-paced humor and tries to be more dramatic it becomes uneven almost to the point of becoming dull. Luckily there's not much of that here. Highly recommended to fans of John Waters, H.G. Lewis, and Something Weird Video's wackier releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Turd. 27 Dec 2003
By Bobby - Published on
Monsturd has to be one of the funniest "horror" movies that has something to do with poop. This movie is funny as hell. It's so creative. Think about it? A walking piece of crap that kills people. How awesome is that? I wish I could have thought that. That is amazing. Yes, some of the acting is pretty bad but that's what makes it so sweet. This movie is one of a kind. My girlfriend picked that movie out. She is definately a keeper for doing that haha. This movie was one of the best low budget films I have ever seen. I love the song at the end as well. Singing about #2 and being aware of something that may come out of your toilet to get you. Very humorous if you ask me. This movie is one of the best.
