YOGA HOSERS REVIEWED
“Yoga Hosers” was one of my most watched movies of 2016. Honestly, I hope that Kevin Smith takes his next film to the Louisville con circuit next year. The guy knows his audience, as much as he can’t pander to a wider audience anymore. Well, that is when you can get him outside of the DC TV stuff. If you haven’t checked out “Yoga Hosers” on Netflix, Blu-ray or other media du jour…you’re missing out.
The film plays as a weird piecemeal of Charles Band by way of 80s B-movie teen comedy. This is the part where I normally address known reader complaints with the film. Seeing as how most of the readers are wrong about the film, I’ll spend the rest of the time ignoring them. In an era where girl power rules slightly higher than the executive branch of government, I’m kinda stunned that America didn’t take to the Colleens. The dynamic duo isn’t that much different than Buffy or her Scooby Gang.
Functioning as the second leg of Kevin Smith’s fantastical Canuck trilogy, Smith is having fun with a particular brand of horror. When you ask someone to be scared and laugh at the same time, it’s too taxing on most. They start find aesthetic complaints or trying to pick apart what’s presented. Did some of the FX look bad? Yeah, but that’s part of the push. This is a film about the clueless combating the forgotten history of a ridiculous place. Enjoy the insanity.

The Plot Thus Far
15-year-olds Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp) are on their smartphones constantly, sing in a small band, and take yoga classes. The girls will do just about anything to receive an invitation to a senior party. But when they discover the leader of a Nazi splinter group has been raising an army of monsters beneath the store where they work, the teens team up with a legendary man-hunter (Johnny Depp) to stop the world-threatening uprising.
