Goofs

When Jackson drops to his knees after reading the marquee outside of the cinema, a passerby can be seen walking in front of him and looking up at the camera. Furthermore, in the subsequent wide-angle shot, a car directly in front of Jackson in the previous scene, has disappeared. See more »

Quotes

girl: [while being threatened with a pitchfork] Ahhhhh!
Jackson: Go ahead, scream if you'd like. To be perfectly honest, I'm really starting to get quite bored with this whole thing.
girl: You're the guy from the pub, aren't you? The one that attacked Nick?
Jackson: Ridiculous isn't it? I mean, I have to kill, I have no choice in the matter, but you think they'd let me try something else as well. I do have other talents as well. There's no sense in you trying to run for it, really. You'll get ten feet, and run into a branch,...

I'm speechless
3 October 2004 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

I've seen way, way, WAY too many B-Movies. I've seen all kinds: Gore films with the worst production values ever, so-bad-they're-good films shot on home videos, and films where the entire film crew was probably on some mind-altering substance during the entire production. However, no film can compare to this film. It's not that the director is throwing a bunch of random weird moments at you. No, not at all -- there aren't a lot of things going on in this movie, in particular. But what IS here is just so completely left-field in the way they handled it. I guess it's hard to describe without you actually seeing the film, but imagine combining your Hugh Grant romance movie with Bloodsucking Freaks or something, and you will probably get an idea of what this is about.

Case in point, the movie opens with the GORIEST OPENING DEATH SCENE EVER! The killer rips a guy's face off and then punches through his chest and takes out his heart! This scene just shocked me to no end, and I kept rewinding it to make sure I just witnessed what I thought I witnessed. So, already, 4 minutes or so into the movie, I just witnessed the goriest opening death scene in history, and I'd like to think that the creators of this film would take this element even further in the movie. Well, that doesn't really happen. You see, the killer then proceeds to kill people in less gory ways... and... then the film spends about 40 minutes detailing his love life with a blind woman.

And the love life with the blind woman involves a man who sort of resembles the Toxic Avenger wearing "sexy clothes" like silk red boxers and stuff and making really awkward love to the blind woman. Then, they walk on the beach and discuss life. THEN, just when you forgot that this is a horror movie, more killing! And the killing's kind of pick back up (it's almost as if they used all their budget on the first scene and didn't have any money left to do any more killing for a few weeks, so they just spent those weeks filming the love scenes crap), and the last killing is by far one of the most mean-spirited things I've ever seen (spoilers, if you care): The killer slits his blind girlfriend's throat for no apparent reason right after she says "I love you" and then she screams, "NO, NO, NOOOOOOO." It's quite mean. Quite. (no more spoilers)

The back of the box says that this is supposed to be a spoof, but -- besides the fact that the main killer, "Jackson", is wearing a hockey mask and the title has a "part 25" in it -- you couldn't really tell that from the movie. Probably the weirdest film ever.
