A mad scientist who works for "Duetech" comes up with a new deadly bacteria and releases it into the California sewage system. Mean while a serial killer named Jack Schmidt (see the toilet humor) escapes from prison and hides in the sewers. He falls into the waste that our mad scientist has concocted and he melts down to the bone. Naturally Jack Schmidt's d.n.a. mixes with the foul bacterial and we get a giant killer doo doo, a number 2 if you will.
I love that Monsturd chose to take the classic nature gone wrong angle with a big event coming up that the town relies on, similar to movies like Piranha and Grizzly. Of course they threw in a little Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2 for added spice with the chili cook off. The truth is that Monsturd is filled with all kinds of horror cliches and homage to bigger and better things. We have a character named Johnny Waters which can be taken two ways. Of course the infamous cult trash film director or just simply toilet water. Brilliant! This movie also pays homage to Blood Feast in a much appretiated scene and we just get plenty of ridiculous moments all of which were done with a 8 year olds sense of humor. In other words it was perfect for me.
The makers of Monsturd would also go on to do a similar spoof type horror flick called Retardead, which I have not seen to date but I think its about time to give that one a go. If it is half as funny as Monsturd it can't be all that bad.
Monsturd is way better then the majority of these brain-dead spoof horror flicks. If you like this thing you might want to check out Yakov Levi's short film The Killer Bra which is just as amateurish but shares the same level of bad taste.
