review of One-Eyed Monster

Thanks to Brian Gross, the president of BSG Public Relations for arranging for a copy of the movie to be sent to me. (We Virgos gotta stick together...)

The DVD arrived from Liberation Entertainment...



In a darkly comic homage to "Alien" and "The Thing", the cast and crew of an adult film, stranded in a blizzard, must band together against a mysterious and deadly alien, which has possessed the actor with the biggest part--Ron Jeremy (naturally). Now, with the monster on a killing spree, the race is on to trap and destroy it before there are more victims of its peculiar skills.


The preview on the website gave me the impression that it would have a horror-based plot...(but not taking itself too seriously) with some comedy. Five minutes into the movie I noticed on the DVD box: "A comedy by the Fields brothers". ("Doh!...")

It runs over one hour and fifteen minutes. Due to language and subject matter, it is for adults...there is some "bloody messes", though.

I consider it a movie to be watched with "friends": get it from Netflix, grab some food and drink, relax, and put it on. As with anything: don't expect "too much" from it, and it's possible you could enjoy what you receive.


Notes I made while watching the movie:

I wasn't sure what to expect regarding production quality...most of it was good, like any other movie you'd expect to see in the theater. There were some poor effects, but they appeared...I noticed...and really didn't care.

(After you watch the movie, the following observation will make sense...) Some of the dialog between Ron and Veronica seems to be introspective...

I think I've seen most adult sexually related devices, and the "neural tactile simulator" seems familiar to one now on the market, but with some added processing power I think this thing could be a consideration for some...

In general, I liked the dialog...

Halfway through the movie, I began to lose (some) interest...

Then, Charles Napier appeared...and I expected things to perk-up some: more horror, comedy...or both. For me, it did (I won't spoil his "break-out" scene)...

It does have some (kinda) "scary" parts...

Some parts of the movie (plot) are weak. I kept hoping the movie would hold together to the end. It did (kinda).

The acting of one guy doesn't get better, and becomes monotonous rather quickly...

Some events in the movie, to my surprise, were "wrapped-up" at the end.

If you watch all of the credits, there are some interesting facts that are verified.


I have not watched the Features of the DVD:
