Bad enough to make your eyes bleed
2 October 2010 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

According to director Doris Wishman, much of the negative for A Night To Dismember was wiped during processing by a disgruntled lab employee, forcing her to complete the film by re-editing the remaining material together with hastily shot new footage and a god-awful narrative to try and explain what the hell is going on (it fails: within minutes I hadn't a clue what was happening).

I'm not sure if I believe her story (after all, it's so easy to blame someone else for your own incompetent film-making), but if that's really the case, then what that lab guy did was unforgivable—I mean, he had the perfect opportunity to remove the entire thing from existence for good, but the douche-bag still left Wishman enough material to cobble together this abomination!

Anyway, whether Wishman's story is true or not, the fact remains that A Night To Dismember redefines the word 'awful', being a thoroughly incomprehensible, horribly dubbed mess of disjointed scenes that even a liberal sprinkling of unconvincing gore (beheadings, axe murders, finger chopping, a heart removed etc.,) and gratuitous nudity cannot improve.

Some call it 'surreal'; some describe it as 'so bad, it's good'; others call it 'a cult classic'. I call it s**t! Watch at your own risk.
