Trees was Jaws, substituting Sheriff Cody for Brody], botanist Max Cooper for oceanographer Matt Hooper and lumberjack named Squint for, you already yelled it out, Quint. But hey — there’s certainly a sequel in here, as Ranger Cody goes to live in a resort town that is soon battling an army of government-created genetically enhanced trees that eat humans and get loose over the holidays.
Yes, that is Horshack from Welcome Back, Kotter. And this is definitely in the Troma school of a movie that’s aware of how dumb it is and going deep to be even dumber.
I’m all for the idea of killer tree movies. There’s already Day of the Triffids, The Happening, The Guardian, The Crawlers and as bad as some of those are, they sustain interest and entertain much better than this movie.
Imagine hearing a bad joke and laughing at how well it’s told. Now just imagine if someone tells the same joke with no delivery and timing.
That’s this movie.
