Prosaic psycho-on-the-loose flick with recycled ideas.
19 August 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Don't let the clever I DISMEMBER MAMA title lead you to believe that this is going to be a bull's-eye grindhouse classic. Simply stated, this is a strictly par B thriller full of hand-me-down ideas, possibly a notch higher on the sicko-meter for presenting a psychotic antagonist unwholesomely obsessed with a little girl. Beyond that, a faceless dime-a-dozen vehicle with the usual kook harboring the usual resentment of females, and the usual unlucky lasses who become his victims.

It's a visually unappealing affair, with better performances from its principal cast than the base material really deserves, and a few scenes are admittedly set up fairly well. In the bigger picture, however, this is just an unimaginatively assembled exposition of something we've all seen a thousand times before, and done a thousand times better.

4/10...passable, but you'll certainly live to tell about how you didn't bother to see it.
