The plot is comic booky and some of the performances are one-note, but this does contain a surprising amount of very funny dialogue. Sure, Howard is no E.T., but it does contain a certain charm and campy humor that is very enjoyable. Jeffrey Jones is the best of the human performers, giving a hilarious metamorphic performance as a scientist, whose body is possessed by the dark overlord. The scene in the restaurant is proof of how funny and sadly unappreciated Jones really is (if you don't believe me, check out his work in Amadeus and Ferris Bueller's Day Off).
