brain dead and sadistic, NEWLYDEADS is dead on arrival, 30 May 2000
Author: silentgpaleo

I think that this film is about as bad as it gets. It is cruel, has despicable characters, and it concentrates on homo-phobia as if it were a good thing. NEWLYDEADS made me angry in many different ways.

First, there's the plot, which is so ludicrously played out that you wished that the transvestite would wipe everyone out pronto. Second, the actors are universally annoying. Why noone decided to hire professionals is probably a credit to the lecherous script. Thirdly, the direction is poor, poor, poor...fruit has rotted much more colorfully. And, the thing is, the director still gets work!

This is appalling work by any standards, and someone had to actually edit this thing.

NEWLYDEADS is a zero in my book.
