Writer/director Sergey Kuchkov's obscure Russian science fiction effort from 1993, simply called MONSTERS in English, has a photographer joining a team of scientists and a couple of military dudes to check out a town where a nuclear meltdown has led to a mass evacuation (shades of Chernobyl) and the ludicrous mutation of rats, snakes, crayfish, crows and a hopelessly unfrightening tortoise. With FX that looked primitive in FOOD OF THE GODS (1976) rendered even more primitively, this is worth it for the tortoise, which is meant to be scary as our protagonists run (???) from it and try to avoid its rubbery head as the thing looms in a window by way of a very obvious broomstick.
A year after losing his friend in a tragic 4,000-foot fall, former ranger Gabe Walker and his partner, Hal, are called to return to the same peak to rescue a group of stranded climbers, only to learn the climbers are actually thieving hijackers.
Danny is obsessed with a fictional movie character action hero Jack Slater. When a magical ticket transports him into Jack's latest adventure, Danny finds himself in a world where movie magic and reality collide.
A narcissistic TV weatherman, along with his attractive-but-distant producer and mawkish cameraman, is sent to report on Groundhog Day in the small town of Punxsutawney, where he finds himself repeating the same day over and over.
