Commentary #35 – Monsturd (2003)

DVD wrap.eps

The Good News: In the spirit of the holiday season, the Film Pigs bring you TWO commentaries! Overcome with the joy and love that accompanies the annual celebration of rampant consumerism (and Jesus!), we felt the need to give something back out of the simple kindness of our hearts.

The Bad News: The two movies we watched are terrible and we’re complete assholes about both of them.

Monsturd tells the tale of an escaped convict who gets covered in mad scientist goo that turns him into a giant dookie creature. Okay, fine. We were on board with the premise. The problem is that both of these movies (Monsturd and its sequel, RetarDEAD) are essentially home movies that are a little too pleased with themselves to be much fun for the audience. Kind of like Film Pigs commentaries.

Also give a listen to our commentary for RetarDEAD!


This commentary was recorded while watching Monsturd on Netflix. As this is a first for the Film Pigs, there is a different procedure for syncing the commentary to the movie. All instructions are in the commentary, so give a listen and follow the crystal clear steps for maximum holiday cheer.

    1. Actually, I was most impressed by the fact that both Monsturd and RetarDEAD (tomorrow’s commentary) were available on Netflix for streaming. It looks like it’s a simple process to submit your content to Netflix (as long as it is at least 60 minutes). Found instructions here:

      They already seem out of date, though, as I couldn’t find the “Submit Your Film” link. In any event, regardless what I thought about the movies themselves, good on the creators for getting them on The ‘Flix.

  1. So three movies in a row I am completely unable to watch. Just fucking great. How about you go back to doing movies regular people can actually access?

    1. Sorry, dude. Just think of these last few commentaries as our “experimental” phase. Next commentary will be something more mainstream. Or a Steven Seagal direct to video release.

  2. Hey guys,

    Thanks for taking the time to check out our flicks Monsturd and RetarDEAD… Sorry you didn’t enjoy them more. Hopefully you’ll dig our next one, Caberslay, about a winery located in the Napa Valley that’s run by Satanists. Cheers!
