An utterly insulting envoi for fringe-cinema's venerated pariah
20 January 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Andy Milligan's last gasp before he bought the farm was this criminally unamusing slasher-genre lampoon which finds a hospital violently beset by an unidentified serial killer. The eccentric but loyal staff does everything possible to keep the situation under wraps while a bumbling police investigation is underway.

This painfully unfunny dark-humor pasquinade won't likely appease the small-but-avid coterie of Andy Milligan enthusiasts. In most cases, Milligan's monogram directorial flourishes evince a bizarre, dissentient singularity...an unpremeditated aspect with considerable appeal to a niche viewership. Critically speaking, these films are indisputably wretched. To a discriminate audience, however, they transcend critical assay by virtue of their waywardly off-center peculiarities. SURGIKILL is lacking in this distinction, however, as failed attempts at comedy rarely outshine their deficiencies with abstract or specious incidental charm. This film is an improficient blaze of inanity which is entirely non-evident of professionalism in any facet of its lazy fructification. Quite simply put, SURGIKILL is possibly the worst comedy I have ever seen. An unfortunate final coda to a career as diacritic and fascinating as it was inglorious.

Saul Bellow once said..."Any artist should be grateful for a naive grace which puts him beyond the need to reason elaborately." These words could have been a fitting inscription on Andy's grave-marker.

1.5/10
