Did I really just see what I think I saw?????
9 March 2003 | by (FrightMeter.Com) – See all my reviews

Oh my. Well, based on the somewhat "positive" reviews this film has received on here, I decided to get my hands on a copy. From the first frame my jaw was on the floor. Not because of how gory or inventive this film is, but how downright awful and sloppy it is. I don't have a problem with low budget movies at all. I respect anyone with the dedication to put an ultra-low budget movie together (believe me, this is as low budget as you can get!!) as long as they make a decent attempt to make the best of what they got. This film does succeed as a black comedy, I laughed my ass off many times during it, but more because of the sheer stupidity of what I was seeing. The film is about a back woods "woman" who get pregnant 30 years ago by a guy named Deek, who instantly leaves her. Well, 30 years later, she is still pregnant and finally gives birth, quite unconventionally, to Luther, a 30 year old, 300lb retard. To sum this up, teenagers accidentally run his Mommy over and hide the body, which causes him to go on a murderous rampage. The murders consist of Luther swinging an object and then a shot of a body part of piece of clothing flying through the air. Oh, and we mustn't forget the scene where he chews this womans breasts apart, but it is SO obvious that they are hunks of nylon and plastic. I don't know what else to say about this...the film quality is POOR, sound is POOR, special effects are POOR, and it is chalk full of continuity errors. However, it is not a total loss because I did get a good laugh out of it. My suggestion, if you think you are getting a decent slasher flick like I did, avoid this, but if you want a hysterical laugh--this is your film. 2 out of 10.
