DVD Review: NIGHT OF THE TENTACLES (2013)

I love the cover of this DVD. What a great cover...from the pic, to the cool font of the title. The case for this DVD is awesome! Unfortunately, what is inside the case...well..not so much. Here is the plot of NIGHT OF THE TENTACLES from the MVD website:
In this obscene Faustian tale a young artist sells his soul to Satan for the new heart he so desperately needs. The only catch is that the heart is a tentacled monstrosity with a hunger for human flesh! Will Dave get the girl of his dreams? Will he run out of neighbors to feed to his infernal heart? Will Delilah ever finish urinating? Find out in NIGHT OF THE TENTACLES!!!
This will be a short review, as there is really not much to say about this one. The acting is horrible, especially from the lead male playing the part of Dave. He might have potential to be a good actor, but in this film he overacts way too much, making some really dumb faces and facial expressions all throughout the film. It's almost like he is trying to be like Bruce Campbell from the EVIL DEAD films except he is trying way too hard. Watch it and you will probably see what I mean.
This film is very low budget and it shows. Now don't get me wrong, I can enjoy and appreciate a good, low-budget film. I have seen a lot of them. As long as they entertain me and keep me interested, I couldn't care less what the budget for the film was. NIGHT OF THE TENTACLES did not keep me interested. In fact, it took me a couple of times to watch the film as I kept falling asleep.
I really can't recommend this film to anyone. BUT...like I always say, check it out for yourself and see what you think. I have seen quite a few positive review quotes about this film, so maybe it is just me. I have to be honest in my reviews, though, so I am telling it like it is.
If you have seen this film, leave a comment and let me know what you thought of this movie. Am I wrong in my negative review of this film? Leave a comment and let me know!
