Experimental “B movie horror” with an eye to children and language that's described by its director, Bill Storz, as a “patchwork quilt of Super-8 story, a . . . lumbering and loaded heap, delicate, honest, ready to fall down. Not a very efficient monster [apparently there is one] . . . but one of poetry, good and bad, tied to the earth and the sea” (1991). 115 min.
