One-Eyed Monster is a horror spoof in the same spirit as Jack Frost, in
that the humor derives from the fact that the monster itself is ridiculous,
but the film is primarily executed as straight horror, not as a comedy.
Here is the premise:
A group of adult film stars, many of them played by actual adult film stars
like Ron Jeremy, Carmen Heart and Veronica Hart, travel to a remote mountain
lodge to film their latest epic. Some alien entity possesses Ron Jeremy's
dick, which detaches itself from the rest of Ron's body and becomes the
killer. The alien chooses to take over a famously productive penis in order to
spread its seed through earth.
Yup, an evil dick. A dick, in fact, even more repulsive than spotted dick,
and nearly as repulsive as Andy.
Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed the first half-hour of this film.
It's nicely photographed, funny, and offers a lot of affectionately satirical
insight into the adult film industry. But once the murders begin, the movie
really becomes a straightforward monster film, albeit with an unusual monster.
There are some highlights in the second half, mostly provided by film veteran
Charles Napier as a crazy mountain man who comes to assist the adult film team
in their battle against the alien-controlled dick. By the oddest of
coincidences, he is eminently qualified for this task, having lost his platoon
in 'Nam when the same alien race made its previous attempt to take over an
Earth dick. In a long parody of a war story, which Napier tells with
straight-faced realism, he recalls having to explode his commanding officer's
rogue penis with a grenade.
An odd movie.
For a film about porn films, it doesn't have much flesh. The characters
talk about sex constantly, often in hilariously graphic terms, but the only
actual nudity is provided by adult film actress Carmen Heart (aka Hart), who
is rehearsing her big scene when the big evil dick attacks her. It isn't
really clear why the dick chooses to kill her rather than to impregnate her. I
guess just because he's acting like a dick.
We do another "Babe in Bondage" day as the Time Machine goes back to the
sixties for "Bloody Pit of Horror" and a trio of beauties in big trouble,
nudity, but it came close, remember this was the early sixties.
