Movie Reviews

Soundtrack information

"So far I haven't been able to locate a soundtrack to this kooky, wacky, zany movie, but I am seriously wanting/needing the DVD. (It's on my wish list now). The Party Rave during the credits is based on the "Mad Monster Party" song by Edith Ennis from the movie of the same name. But, it is a remix performed by Ryeland Allison entitled "Moster Party Song". I have yet to find a recording of my very own, so if anyone else does, please clue me in. The Jazz tune is entitled "Don't Waste My Time" performed by Extract; written by Kurt Metzler and Marjorie Extract. I hope this information help you all out. "Please! Don't kill me Frank! We were supposed to be on cereal boxes together...""

"first of all this is a low budget movie,and a cross breed between the b/w frankenstein (silent original)and the tv serie "friends"! a terrrrible blend !a movie for you who like absolutely ...`rubbish movies .if you still buy the dvd,do not forget to put out your cigarret !beacause you are bound to fall asleep. the plot,the acting,the special effects are absolutely 100 % b-movie .ed wood you have a serious competitor !must disturbing is the cuts made to this film,its allready bad as it was.just look at the trailer and cool thing about this film -it`s grizzly green box the dvd is packed in!"

"Obviously aimed at a teen market, BOLTNECK is a diverting, unremarkable film loosely based on the Frankenstein legend. Matthew Lawrence stars as the genius who wants to bring something back to life. He gets his chance when two jocks accidentally kill a nerd (delightfully played by Ryan Reynolds). Lawrence rejuvenates him but unknowingly uses the brain of a recently killed murderer/robber. The new Reynolds is cool, and an asskicker. Meanwhile, Lawrence has fallen for the demure Macy (a lovely Christine Lakin), and he wants to win her over, in spite of his creation.
Shelley Duvall and Judge Reinhold as Lawrence's parents are awful, but they aren't really that integral to the movie. What little effects there are won't make you forget Terminator, but it's a pleasant and harmless little movie."
Nice little gem...

"This film is a nice if unimposing blend of Beetlejuice & Fast Times at Ridgemont High. It has a good pace, fine timing, & excellent performances (especially by Ryan Reynolds as the "monster"). A nice serendipitous experience."
