I have to say, I had never heard of this flick. It came in a 3-pack I just got called 'Grindhouse Psychos' and man the price was worth this one flick alone. Even if the other two films SUCK, I'd pay what I paid for all any day for just this movie.
The acting is atrocious, though you'll see some familiar faces. I kept going: 'I've seen that dude/chick in something before...' but it was difficult to put my finger on exactly what it was. "Tenement" was totally brutal. It has some scenes that are downright nasty and this is not a film for the faint of heart. Here is the thing though; this movie is really entertaining! It might be cheesy and the blood looks like Campbells tomato soup, but there sure is plenty of it to make it worth your while.
I commend the folks who made "Tenement" because you can tell they put everything they had into it and that's why it deserves this rating. Unlike so many other films that Hollywood keeps churning out these days, every penny was squeezed dry and people had a blast making this film and you can totally tell through the whole grueling experience. I watched it last night, but I slept on it before reviewing it and today I kept thinking how awesome it was...Yea, I dug this one!
The plot: a group of HILARIOUSLY STEREOTYPICAL New York tenement tenants call the cops on some AWESOMELY BAD thugs living in the basement. The thugs get out of jail and come back for revenge and in a big way.
If you can find this flick, buy it. It's worth every cent. The only downfall I found with this one was the ending...a little lackluster.
7 out of 10, kids.
