The Necro Files (1997)

*** (out of 4)

Two detectives are searching for a serial rapist who has attacked, raped and mutilated over two-hundred women. One day they finally catch a break and blow him away but nine months later the rapist's newborn son is sacrificed at his grave site by a group of Satan worshipers, which brings the rapist back to life. Only this time he's a zombie who goes out looking for more woman to mutilate.

If you're looking for a clean-cut, straight-forward horror film then you're going to find hundreds at your video store or whatever mainstream source you enjoy. THE NECRO FILES certainly isn't a movie to take home to your parents and in fact, it's not really a movie you're going to want to watch with anyone unless they too seek out the bizarre underground type of flicks that most people would find revolting a vile. It's funny but I remember seeing this back in 1997 and I had never heard of it before. Someone at a video store said it was unlike anything he had ever seen so I rented it on that alone. There's no doubt that I had never seen anything like it and the film remained in my mind all the way up to this second viewing.

Look, I'm not going to sit here and say this thing is a lost classic because it's not. Yes, it's extremely silly at times. Some of the acting is horrid. The "baby" is obviously fake. We could spend a lot of time talking about the low-budget but instead of looking at the negative I'm just going to say that I enjoyed the film, it's charm and the fact that it's rather graphic in its own right. If you've seen Joe D'Amato's PORNO HOLOCAUST or EROTIC NIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD then you're going to see what influenced this movie. The film offers up a lot of naked women, a lot of graphic kills and plenty of pig guts thrown all over the place. The gore level is extremely high for a film from this period and there's also a lot of nudity to keep you entertained.

The zombie make-up is also another plus. I enjoyed him going around in his burial suit and the visual of his face was rather good considering the budget. The fact that he goes around with a giant penis just adds to the strangeness and there's no question that the meeting with the blow-up doll is something.... Well, rather unique as is the rest of the film.
