Any Exploitation/cult-Horror fans out there with little to no patience for comic-relief, and for those of you who are looking for a gruesome, unforgiving gore-fest, with no redeeming qualities, then Urban Flesh is for you, and only you. If you take my advice, and give this French-Canadian nightmare a try, and if I am in fact right, and you come to the conclusion that Urban Flesh is the keenest Horror flick ever, then chances are good that no one will ever love you and you will most likely never find happiness of any kind. And now, I suppose this is the part where I explain what this film is about. Well, here goes nothing (literally). A group of killers go around killing and cannibalizing random people, in a very, very gory fashion, with seemingly endless scenes involving people standing around, devouring body parts, with unnecessarily graphic, smacking noises in the background, the end. That's practically it... nay, that's literally it. Oh yeah!! It was also shot on video... which come to think of it, does not help this movies case whatsoever, that is, unless you're one of those freaks who likes that sort of thing, which would sort of make sense if you seriously consider a movie such as this to be that keen. A homage to the legendary, ferocious Italian Gore from the late-70's to mid-80's, which pretty much clears up any questions regarding why this movie has zero humor, and even less personality. Taking all that into account, Urban Flesh could pass for some form of a success. As we all know, the golden age of Italian Gore was a bit on the boring side, yet I feel compelled to recommend the timeless epics of Joe D'Amato (Beyond The Darkness, Erotic Nights Of The Living Dead, Anthropophagus). Boring or not, Urban Flesh is truly the most repulsive thing to come out of Canada... not that I'm an expert on Canadian gore, or anything, but this one would push the limit anywhere, even Florida. As one of those who considers themselves desensitized in the way of fictional gore, I don't use this word very often, but this film would definitely qualify as "gross". So, Urban Flesh, for what it is, is a success, but I honestly couldn't imagine a snuff film being any less interesting. 5/10
