Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2007) Review
Jon Knautz directed Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2007) is an R rated action horror comedy film. This movie won 3 movie awards and 6 award nominations. Robert Englund, Trevor Matthews, and Daniel Kash star in Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer.
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is about Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) carrying emotional baggage from when his family died when he was young. Now, he must face the fact that his Professor Gordon Crowley, played wonderfully by Robert Englund, is becoming a monster.
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is filled with hijinks and hilarious comedy. A few of the scenes are lame and noticeable. Robert Englund does a terrific job playing the monster but like fans of Englund know, he can go a little over the top with his acting. I have grown to love that aspect of Englund like many of his fans. Trevor Matthews did a better than expected job playing the role of hero juggling action, horror, and comedy. The special effects were one of the better parts of this film. My gripes with the film were with the screenplay mostly; some elements just did not click.
