How bad is it? It's pretty amazingly bad.
Should you see it? Yes. It's one of the more entertaining bad films.
Written by Gahan Wilson, this makes fun of low-budget filmmaking, while being one of the worst-made low-budget films; how much of this was intentional is hard to say. A boy kills his mother and her boyfriend, escapes prison as an adult and gets stopped by an actress who parlays the notoriety into a role in a sci-fi film being shot in the desert. He then escapes again and hunts her and the film crew. Funniest scene involves eating a rattlesnake. There's a cheapo wooden spaceship and rock monster, a plastic bear claw attack, a chainsaw attack, a fall broken by a victim's belly, visibly breathing dead people and some awful 1980's clothing (including a plaid suit) and hair.
