If you ever wondered what recliner sex would look like, you’ll learn a lot from Killer Sofa. The thing I like best about stupid movies is their unpredictability. The worst thing about stupid movies, on the other hand, is how much story they’re ready to sacrifice for a good joke. This one is willing to go to great lengths to build a convoluted mythos. We didn’t need that...
It didn’t take much to turn a La-Z-Boy into a killing machine for the special effects team. In terms of creature design, this is as simple as it gets. Every scene involving the recliner got my full interest, but the exposition is painful. How can you respect anyone who lives in this world? Fortunately, poor characters make great body counts. This is a slasher, first and foremost.
Say what you will about this film, there’s nothing like it out there. It’s certainly not trendy. Distribution-wise, it’s a financial risk. Whatever the outcome is, this project must’ve been fun to work on. At no time was the meager budget an issue. Writer and director Bernie Rao pulled it off. This is the kind of film you watch with a bong or a 6-pack of beer. It’s pure nonsense.
