'Roid Rage': Film Review

  • MoreHorror
Review by Mike Pickle, MoreHorror.com

"They're coming after you Sammy" "Who's coming after me?" "Everyone". A mysterious female voice whispers an ominous warning on the other line as Sammy tries to make sense of his strange (and very gross) affliction. One of the many strangely captivating scenes in Roid Rage. A beautifully shot Horror / Comedy short film from Cinematographer Ryan Lightbourn who also produced, wrote, directed and edited this nasty little gem.

This gory, zany, but very well made 14-minute Horror ride centers around Sammy (Zach Canfield). A down on his luck, loveable loser who works at a nuclear power plant. His humdrum life is turned upside down when he develops an itchy and mutating deformity. A giant killer hemorrhoid growing out of his ass! Now FBI Agent Jenkins (John Russo) and Agent Munroe (Ben Evans) are after him in connection with the murders of a bunch of local hookers.

Roid Rage Readying to Toss Your Salad

The news concerning upcoming indie film Roid Rage has absolutely nothing to do with steroids. Nor does it have a single thing to do with asteroids. However, it does very much have to do with one unlucky man's ass and the vicious creature that flies out of his anus like the jaws on a xenomorph from Alien. Color me enchanted!

That's right, kids! There's no amount of Preparation H to save you from Ryan Lightbourn's Roid Rage starring Zach Canfield, John Russo, Ben Evans, John Archer Lundgren, Grayson Lauffenburger, and Randi Lee Krasni. It is exactly what you think it is ... lowbrow, gore-heavy entertainment! Just the way we like it!

Indie Grindhouse Preview: Roid Rage Shows Quivering Body Parts in this Trailer

*written by Ed Sum.

Coming soon from the twisted mind of director/cinematographer Ryan Lightbourn is Roid Rage, the Movie! Better known for Sleepwalkers, Lightbourn has a new tale to spin and a longer short film that's certain to get some body parts twitching.

The trailer needs to be seen to be believed. At least with what FBI Agents Jenkins (John Russo) and Munroe (Ben Evans) discovers, there's more to the chaos that's going on in a small rural town being plagued by a Jack the Ripper wannabe.

They get more than they can ever bargain for, and the hilarity and terror that ensues needs to be seen than to be believed. Judgement Day cannot come soon enough. Maybe hopping on a trip on the Nostromo is better?

Status: Post-production.

Director/D.P./Editor: Ryan Lightbourn.

Cast: John Russo, Ben Evans, Zach Canfield, John Archer Lungdren, Grayson Lauffenburger, and Randi Lee Krasny.
