If you're a fan of Something Weird Video then it's more than likely that you've ran into a few films from director Barry Mahon. Much like Herschell Gordon Lewis, Mahon made a wide range of films including nudies like THE BEAST THAT KILLED WOMEN, NUDE A GO-GO and he's also the man behind the infamous CUBAN REBEL GIRLS. Later in his career, much like Lewis, he also made some children movies, which this adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson tale falls into.
I'm not going to waste my time with the "story" but we have Shay Garner playing Thumbelina and I guess she's the best thing going for the film. She has a nice enough of a voice to help make the songs somewhat better but it's really doubtful anyone is going to want to sit through this film. Even children will either be bored or terrified of how "bad" this movie is. The production values are obviously very low and it appears everything was mostly shot on the same set. It should go without saying that quality wasn't what the producers of this were going for but it's just not entertaining.
