About the Movie
Ever since he watched monsters brutally slaughter his family during a childhood camping trip, local plumber Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) has had major anger management issues. But when a busted pipe disturbs an ancient evil, Jack will unwittingly unleash a force that transforms his kindly night school professor (Robert ‘FREDDY KRUEGER’ Englund) into a ravenous, tentacled, infectious beast from Hell. Even if Jack can no longer run from the demons of his past, can he at least hack them to pieces before they devour his entire class? Rachel Skarsten (BIRDS OF PREY) and James A. Woods co-star in this over-the-top international film festival sensation that Fangoria hails as “a gore-oozing homage to wild-and-crazy ‘80s horror!”

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer harks back to the drive-in classics of yesteryear with unapologetic nostalgia and undisguised affection.
Rotten: Indie effort evidences more energy than wit, and spends too much time on set-up before a slam-bang pay-off.
Fresh: Matthews is supposed to be the star here, but it's Englund's hilarious, over-the-top performance that keeps Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer... from becoming another forgettable exercise in horror.
Rotten: Despite a game performance by Trevor Matthews in the lead, not much in this alleged comic/horror flick really succeeds as either funny or scary.
Ok, when you saw everything else
You can watch this when you liked Grabbers, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead etc. It is not as good as the latter, but it is okay as a rental. Best enjoyed with a bottle of Tequila. ;)
