What's it all about, algae? The grotesque half-plant, half-human comic-book hero slogs through the bayou once more in this low-rent thriller-chiller series.

Thanks to a thick coat of slime, Dick Durock, as Mr. Thing, may become the least recognized actor in a series since Rhoda's disembodied Carleton the doorman. Overall, a campy excuse to toss another pouch of popcorn in the microwave.
