“Killer Kites is a fun concept with a fun theme song, but the sum of its parts doesn’t gel together. The chemistry is flat and the jokes can range from funny to just…. cringe, for example, the c-word joke played over and over. As I’ve said, the props are the best part and got the most laughs from me, especially with the conspiracy board and the water bottle bong.” Nightmarish Conjurings
“At some point, filmmakers will hopefully realize that trying to make an intentionally bad cult film just about always ends with a film that is indeed bad, just not in an entertaining way. That’s why the first Birdemic film caught on with viewers while its sequels were deservedly ignored. And apart from a mildly amusing bit with a “Pro Kite” conspiracy theorist, this is about as far from entertaining as it gets.” 1 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
