Ultra obscure '80s gore flick
16 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An early offering of the kind of no-budget gore-filled American horror movies that would later fill the STV market in the '90s, THE ABOMINATION is a thoroughly tasteless offering which goes out of its way to offend and disgust at every opportunity. The film is extraordinarily cheap, so all acting, directing and camera-work is of an amateur standard, whilst the special effects are so phony as to be unbelievable – the fakeness of the whole thing is what makes the gore seem palatable.

The basic storyline involves a malignant devil-obsessed tumour which grows in cupboards and leads our wooden antagonist on a crime spree, as he saws through throats, chainsaws heads and generally gets blood and goo all over himself. Surprisingly the film lasts for the whole 1 ½ standard running time, which means there's a hell of a lot of padding (flowers, horses, etc.) and plenty of boredom as you wait around for something to happen.

Two things I liked about the film: the music, which was annoyingly catchy and repetitive, but I loved it, and the monster in the cupboard, which reminded me of the creature in THE DEADLY SPAWN, in a good way. Sadly, somebody decided to show all the best bits in the film's opening 'nightmare' sequence which must be seen to be believed; I thought I was watching a trailer. Otherwise you get just what you expect with this movie; a lot of cheapness, fakery and splashing blood and body bits. Weird and gruesome and thoroughly unrecommendable.
