Storyline

Graphic, low-budget gore-shocker about Rob and Betty, a couple of ordinary necrophiles who apparently don't mind if their dead sexual partners are not so fresh. Rob's job affords him the opportunity to bring home corpses and the odd body part; when he loses his job, he loses Betty, and Rob's life gets REALLY bizarre. Written by Jeff Hole <jeffhole@aol.com>

Gross.... Pure Gross
21 December 2003 | by (Norfolk, VA) – See all my reviews

This movie is the sickest movie that I have ever seen. One good thing about the movie is that it did have a decent plot during the movie enough for me to go by. I couldn't believe some of the scenes that I was watching and I had to even close my eyes during the scenes of animal mutilation. This one is a good one to churn your stomach a little, or a lot. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone into some real gross stuff, give this one a look.
