Schlock, a prehistoric apeman who falls in love with a teenage blind beauty and terrorizes her Southern California suburb. Schlock is no ordinary simian; he possesses some very unusual skills. Among other things, he plays the piano and gives TV interviews. In this hysterical spoof of early monster movies and missing-link science fiction films, John Landis pays homage to the monster movies of the past with irreverent humor and wacky hijinks.
The film is the first credited project by Landis, who also starred as the title role. The film is notable for the early work of make-up artist Rick Baker.
This film has received positive reviews, it currently holds a 60% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
