Storyline

Three L.A. street thugs mug an old man, murder him by cutting his throat, beat up a woman and steal her car, break into another young woman's house and proceed to beat and rape her. She is taken to the hospital and while recovering is brought mug shot books by the police to see if she can identify her attackers, which she does. But the bad guys leader, Cole, disguises himself as a doctor, breaks into the woman's hospital room and murders her. Vowing vengeance, her college student boyfriend, Mark, and his student pals Carlos and Scott, decide to build a 'Golem' from human and animal parts, bring it to life and have it track down the murderers so there is no risk to themselves! But not everything goes to plan when an unexpected, and very unlikely, romance breaks out between the 'Golem' whom they name Frankie, and a simpleton street woman named Jamie whom Frankie saves from the street thugs. Written by Larry B.

Unique and Loopy
10 December 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of film and honestly I have never seen anything quite like this (it is my first Milligan film). The film starts with a serious tone of rape and murder. The production level being pretty minimal. Then the film turns wierdly slapstick, it's like watching an 80s version of Laurel and Hardy. Then you get gore that would be pretty grim if it was done at any level of realism. This gore is so inept you would think that Milligan went out of his way to make it look so bad! Women get brutalized, a smidgen of bare breast, then back to slapstick. The camera work is professional at times and then you yet shots and editing that are again almost purposely bad. The dialogue is pretty much all bad.

I enjoyed it very much. I will learn more about Milligan as I watch more of his films but it appears to me that he has more purpose and style than any lack of talent. Oh, and almost everyone who sees this will hate it. Those that will enjoy it... well, you know who you are!
