My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:1/4 (Bad)
Characters:2/4 (Indifferent) Bonus points for Death. I mean, how is it that the backbone of one of the stupidest movies ever made is an Ingmar Bergman reference? I love that.
Dialog:2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing:3/4 (Good)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:1/4 (Bad)
Acting:1/4 (Bad)
Music:2/4 (Indifferent) Bad music, but right for the movie.
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4 (Indifferent)). Like I said: one of the stupidest movies ever. But it knows it, and it knows you know it, and it’s goofy enough to be fun.
Objective Rating (Average):1.7/4 (Eh)
