Three street punks--Turk, his girlfriend BB., and his sidekick Wimp--observe two young affluent kids, Ginger and Danny, shoplifting from a record store. On a lark, the street kids invite themselves along to a party at the home of the yuppies' friends, Rod and Arlene. There the party games turn from strip darts to Russian roulette as it becomes increasingly obvious that the yuppies are playing with the street kids' emotions. Eventually the three street kids are all brutally murdered by the yuppies, who had purposely lured them in for exactly that purpose. The yuppies then prepare for their next "kill." Written by

I'll say one thing, I expected very little from this one, but the shocking truth is, I found Venus Flytrap to be positively delightful. As an obscure movie collector, sometimes, I find myself craving shot-on-video trash like Redneck Zombies, and often come up short with unwatchable garbage like Long Island Cannibal Massacre, or Insaniac. Most recently, I ordered a copy of Black Devil Doll From Hell (I'm not ready to talk about that one yet). To make a long story short, there was a mix-up, and it arrived a month late. Being a good sport, the seller added an extra treat for my trouble. Enter Venus Flytrap.
I've probably seen entirely too much unknown horror in my day, but I have never even heard of this movie, and also considering I'm only the second one to speak of it, Venus Flytrap intrigues me. Shot in parts unknown, for most likely, a budget with a triple digit, with a cast of a whopping ten. About some dull 80's yuppies, with their dull 80's party being taken over by a trio of obnoxious 80's riff-raff with stupid 80's hair. One of them is called Wimp, who has a stupid, repetitive laugh, which almost ruins the movie. Although, no one is laughing when Turk, the David Hasselhoff-ish leader gets ornery, and initiates a game of Russian Roulette (a man's game). A game that separates the children from the adults, or at least makes for a good ice breaker, or whatever the reason may be, it really gets this #@%$!% party jammin!!
At first glance, original wasn't exactly the first word to pop into my head, I was ultimately proved wrong, and for that alone, I would recommend Venus Flytrap to any non-video haters out there. Really, give it a chance. Yet, so far, everything I've read about Venus Flytrap compares it to Ruggero Deodato's The House On The Edge Of The Park, basically implying that this totally original, entertaining movie is some kind of a rip-off. Not a rip-off, an improvement. That's right. An s.o.v. improvement. Now, that's impressive. 4/10
