The Killer Eye (1999)

How bad is it? This one sucks.
Should you see it? No way.

David DeCoteau directed this under a pseudonym for Full Moon, which is almost the definition of a bad film. Giant crawling eyes can make for a fun movie (witness: The Trollenberg Terror (1958)), but this one is just awful. A scientist's experiments with the 8th dimension causes a subject's eye to pop out, grow to beach ball size - it might actually be a beach ball that was used - and then essentially rapes women with its optic nerve. There's little nudity, but there are a lot of shirtless boys in their underpants, which has become a signature for the director. The effects are deliberately cheesy, but there's little plot and what there is has holes, the acting is quite poor (a porn star among the cast is as good as any of them) and it's dull even for its scant 70 minutes.
