I have not seen this yet, but word from folks who saw it at festivals is that it is a very funny, intentionally campy thing that knows exactly what it is. Also, most of the crab effects are said to be practical FX and very fun.

I've also been eyeballing this one because the (supposedly hilarious) comic relief character is a Romanian named Radu, and Comrade Doll is from Romania.

This would make a good pairing with Psycho Goreman for a double feature. It's similarly ridiculous while knowing exactly what it is.

Radu was hilarious, though not at all Romanian. He was more like R-Rated Balky from Perfect Strangers, on mushrooms.
