Killer Tongue is a Spanish/English production, and I wouldn’t even point it out if it didn’t matter. Interestingly, the two biggest actors are imported from the United States. We’re talking Melinda Clarke and Robert Englund. In terms of horror, when you think you’ve seen it all, this is what you should go for. As clumsily directed as it is, there’s a crowd for it.
The film has its kinky moments, and yes, some involve Melinda Clarke. I figured there’d be some of that, and it’s never as hot as what’s crossing your mind right now. This isn’t porn! It’s gross, actually. It’s vulgar. That tongue POV shot never gets sexy. But hey, someone had to make a movie about an evil tongue and writer/director Alberto Sciamma raised his hand.
There are trannies, if that’s your thing, there’s a bunch of nuns too, and you get Clarke and Englund wearing leather or not much else. The best moments of this film involve Clarke battling her giant tongue and mutilating herself, which is as BDSM as horror gets. If there’s one thing you’ll remember long after the end credits roll, it’s just how much it fucked with your mind.
