Slapstick gore movies deliberately focus on graphic comical portrayal of violence. They are a mix of slapstick and splatter comedies. In this edition of Trends of Terror, film critic Steve Hutchison reviews 131 slapstick gore movies sorted from best to worst. How many have you seen?
A life-sized disaster.
This movie doesn’t give a damn about you, so why should you care? Why would you even watch a movie that treats you like shit? Aside Lloyd Kaufman who makes a short appearance to talk about his penis, the actors are all Icelandic teenagers who can’t act and are, in fact, not even trying. Just when the film couldn’t get more obnoxious, a disgusting masturbation scene pins us to our seats.
It is terribly hard to look into the soul of this film. It has no depth. It is totally improvised. Between the language barrier, the constant screaming, the eternal moaning, the vague screenplay, a bunch of inside jokes clearly not meant for us, simple viewers, and the absent ambiance, this film is a complete failure. This said, it is extremely amusing if you just… let go. It is hilarious!
Let’s face it, most of us have made films like these when we were young or wish we did. This film was made by careless teenagers pretending to be ten years older. The costumes suck. Most scenes are shot in the woods or in suburban fields. When the kids aren’t drinking alcohol, they’re swearing or beating each other up. The story is indecipherable. This thing is out of control.
