By The Zombie Master Lee Roberts
Synopsis: A funny thing is happening in Florida. It seems that the men are killing the women for no other reason but that they are women. Two scientists, Alan (Jason Priestley) and Barney (Elliott Gould), are called in to find out why, because it seems that the killings are not just happening in Florida. As a matter of fact, women are being attacked and murdered all over the world. The reason revealed in The Screwfly Solution could actually be more disturbing than the act itself.
Thoughts: Let me begin by saying that I am not a Joe Dante fan. After The Howling andGremlins, his resume isn’t the most spectacular. Dante was also the director that brought us the infamous “negligent use of zombies” MOH episode Homecoming. However, that did not mean that I was not going to watch The Screwfly Solution. I am just not that type of person. I sat through it, and I sat through it again, and after sitting through it for the third time I had an epiphany: I just don’t like Joe Dante. I apologize to any Dante fans that are reading this, but I see no redeeming quality in his work. From watchingHomecoming and The Screwfly Solution I have learned that Dante is anti-current administration (can’t really blame him there) and anti-Christian, other than that any other director could have done as good if not better with the scripts he was handed. Am I picky? Yeah, about my horror I am. Am I anal? People have accused me of that. Do I mean to offend? No, but you’ll get over
