Description: This deranged low-budget Canadian production seems specifically tailored to midnight-movie patrons, among which the filmmakers must have thought it could find a solid cult audience. The story involves alien invaders who bring the corpse of Mayor Rigatoni back to life in order to initiate construction of a special facility on the site of the local butcher's septic tank, in which a special element called balonium has been discovered. Matters are further complicated by the butcher's weird influence on the town (he even invents his own language) and the psychopathic behavior of his cleaver-wielding assistant Abdallah, who is rapidly depleting the town's canine population... oh, and there's musical numbers, too. Director/co-writer Chris Windsor seems to dare viewers to make sense of this parody, which aspires to be another Rocky Horror Picture Show, but where that film was possessed of Richard O'Brien's wry genius, all that's available here is a smorgasbord of silliness.~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide
