SF Bay Guardian, June 5-11, 2002:
"It's aliiive! It's hard not to come out in support of a movie about a giant, man-eating poop monster that terrorizes the chili-chomping
population of an innocent small town. Monsturd, the creation of San Francisco filmmakers Dan West and Rick Popko, pays homage to old-school sci-fi flicks like The Blob, with the added bonus of steaming piles of toilet humor. With Ed Wood-style ingenuity (particularly in regard to the resourceful location shooting; yes, that's the United States Mint at Church and Market doubling for the front gate
of a maximum security prison) and some gory props that would make Herschell Gordon Lewis proud, Monsturd has plenty of familiar elements -- mad scientist with a God complex, down-and-out local sherrif, etc. -- but it boasts a certain goofy enthusiasm that'll keep you watching. Directors West and Popko turn in the film's funniest performances as the town's pair of bumbling deputies."
