After birds, sharks, bees and rats comes the terrifying prospect of the gardener’s worst enemy “attacking” a town, which at least leads to some tasty gore amidst the bad dubbing and amusingly OTT score.
Based on Shaun Hutson’s 1982 novel, it’s delightfully terrible – the risible acting, dialogue and editing will have all but trash movie fans reaching for the slug pellets.
Extras Two commentaries (one by Hutson); four interviews; promo reel; trailer; booklet. Russell Lewin
