Vixen Highway 2006: It Came from Uranus! (2010)

How bad is it? I'm the only person who's seen it that wasn't given a free copy to review.
Should you see it? No.

Tony "Tex" Watt tries too hard to make cult films and this remaking of "Vixen Highway" (2001) lost my interest when there was still 130 minutes left to see. It supposedly takes place in Minnesota, but any native could tell it was not filmed there. There's a girl gang, a rock star needing a liver transplant, a demon Star Beast with a Faustian wager and every retro-exploitation idea they could cram in. The plot, such as it is, is impossible to follow. The film has a "look," which seems to be all Watt really cares about.
